About the Book

This teen gothic mystery novel, perfect for fans of Madeleine Roux and Lisa Maxwell, takes readers to the cold, creepy island of Darkhaven, where a girl with unexplained blackouts grapples with secrets from her dead mother’s past and a legacy of murders that have been committed by her family.

Ivy Bloodgood’s mother is dead, and she should probably be sad about it. But she isn’t. Myra Bloodgood was a manipulative personality who never told the truth—about where she came from, who Ivy’s father was, or why they were living their lives on the run.

Now that Ivy has been sent to the family estate on Darkhaven, an island off the New England coast, she is forced to reckon with her mother’s past. Ivy can tell right away there are long-held family secrets buried within these walls, but when she wakes up from one of her nightmares covered in someone else’s blood, Ivy fears that whatever demons her mother battled while she was alive have come to roost in her own mind.

Scared that she can no longer trust what she sees, Ivy seeks the help of a boy who thinks her episodes are connected to the sordid history of Darkhaven—but what they don’t know might kill them both.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A twisty, haunting, and satisfying contemporary gothic that will enthrall readers.” - Kirkus Reviews

“This checks off all the gothic tropes in terms of setting, character, and plot—except for a fainting, vulnerable heroine. Ivy may be deceived at first, but she’s no shrinking violet or victim; her tenacity in tracking down the truth leads readers through this twisty thriller.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“With its gothic undertones, sinister backdrop, and shifty cast of characters, it has all the pieces to ensnare thriller fans.” - ALA Booklist

“Perfect for teens who want an entertaining dark thriller complete with a complex family curse and illicit love story.” - School Library Journal
