Sloane Jacobs has been on the edge of crazy for a long time now. That happens when you can read everyone’s aura, not what they show on the outside but what they’re really like. Knowing that sharing her curse would get her a one-way ticket to the loony bin, Sloane lives alone and trusts no one.
That changes when she meets Liam McDougall, a Gray One; the only kind that she can’t read. She doesn't know what he is exactly but members of his team are disappearing and they need her skills to help them.
Sloane jumps headlong into their hidden world. With their help, her skills develop and she discovers that sentient animals, the fae, gargoyles and other creatures of imagination might not be the entertaining bedtime stories she thought. And the bedtime story she wants is always dancing a step ahead.
