Sidney and her friends must race to find the origin of a storm that has hit their small island home—turning every animal into savage weapons—in this “unpredictable” (VOYA) and “fast-paced” (School Library Journal) thriller from New York Times bestselling author, Thomas E. Sniegoski.
The future is looking bright for Sidney Moore as she as she gets ready to leave the small island of Benediction behind for one of Boston’s top veterinary schools. Only two small bumps in the road to navigate before she can go—her father’s recovery from a debilitating stroke and her own guilt for ending her relationship with her high school sweetheart. But she’s always been strong willed, and she’s not about to let anything stop her from achieving her goals.
Now a storm is bearing down on Benediction, a hurricane that will bring devastating winds and rain, rising tides…and something else. Something deadly; something that will transform all the things that creep, crawl, and flutter into instruments of terror and death.
The future is looking bright for Sidney Moore…if only she can survive the storm.
