Ruby deVarre is Rootkin, and the granddaughter of the most revered clan mother in all of New Haven.
In the kin world, girls Ruby’s age are expected to settle down and start a family. But settling down is the farthest thing from wild-child Ruby's mind; all she wants to do is drive fast with her friends and run free through the woods.
Then Conrad, a handsome boy from a clan across the Waste, comes to New Haven to stay with Ruby, the sparks fly immediately. Conrad is smart, charming, and downright gorgeous. But as Ruby gets to know him more, she starts to realize something's...off.
And then the murders start. Someone is terrorizing Ruby’s small woodland community, and just when she starts to suspect her Prince Charming is anything but, she becomes his next target. And Ruby’s about to find out that his secrets go deeper than she could have ever imagined...
This is the third, final, and mesmerizing instalment of Lili St. Crow’s Tales of Beauty and Madness series.
