There is a fear of the dark that lives deep inside us all. It’s embedded into our primal instincts, and no matter how old we get, it never goes away. We can lie to ourselves, but we can’t lie to what waits for us in the night.
The townspeople of Jacob’s Fork, West Virginia know this all too well. Deep in the mountains there is a secret shrouded in the shadows, one that is whispered about to frighten and protected for reasons too unspeakable to bear the light of day.
A secret that emerges once every thirty years.
It’s called The Reaping Season.
Jacob’s Fork becomes a ghost town after sunset. Shops close, school functions are canceled, and you sit inside your home, praying it doesn’t know where you are and come for you.
And now, Ella Grace has landed herself smack in the middle of it all.
Will she learn the truth, or will The Reaping Season claim her instead?
