Millicent, Ohio is a great Appalachian town that is not only poor but has been left behind by the world.

They think it would be just the place for two people like them to start over. He’s a former cop that left in disgrace and his daughter is an artist that doesn’t quite seem to fit in. It’s the best location for them to recover from the mistake that turned their lives upside down.

The only thing is that the young men in this town are going missing. This extends to the first love and sole confidant of Devon. She starts looking around to find out what’s going on, soon finding a drifter without a name as a possible lead. The graffiti artist is covering the town in his paintings, but is it art, vandalism, or something else entirely?

Devon knows that Millicent is being haunted by a darkness that is tough to shake. Now she has to become greater to take it on. But there are still questions left behind, like where the young men have gone, what the graffiti means, and what is threatening the town. Can Devon Grace rise to the occasion and be the protective force this place needs? Read this book to find out!
