Some of the essential characters depicted by Purdy in this series include Salome Montgomery, Nevin, Colton, Gareth, Kadie Byers, Gwenn, Grisselle, and a few others. The debut book of this series is entitled ‘The Winter People’. It was released in 2014 by the Entangled: Teen publication. Initially, Salome Montgomery is introduced as a girl, who does not like winter. She fears the snow, the cold, the ice, and the frozen pond in which she had fallen when she was a child. She was mysteriously saved by some strange beings and is now haunted by the images and images. Salome is not able to forget the warning of strange beings to stay away from the pond. She did not go near the winter woods and the pond for 11 years. Later, when Salome’s grandparents move to Arizona to get treatment of their failing health, she is left all alone to look after the estate.

As the days pass by, Salome Montgomery discovers that she is an important player in the world that she has tried to avoid for years. The beautiful and strange Nevin lies at the center of that world. Salome saw Nevin trespassing on the property of her family many times. Nevin is cursed with knowledge and dark secrets about the creatures dwelling in the wood. He interacts with Salome and makes her life head in a different direction. A time comes when Salome has to choose between her longtime boyfriend Colton and the beautiful Nevin. She thinks that Colton could help her get over her fear of cold and winter, and Nevin could keep her protected from the dark forces of the winter woods with the assistance of a bodyguard named Gareth. An evil dwells in the darkness that will kill Salome in the first chance he gets and Nevin is determined not to let that happen.

She hopes that her visit to the home will be filled with hot interactions with handsome guys, hot chocolate, and some quality time with her best friend, Salome. But, Kadie is shocked to receive a message from her bestie in which she tells her to hurry and reach home quickly to help her. As Kadie Byers rushes home to help her best friend, she is also pulled into Faerie kingdoms. There, she discovers that the monsters Salome used to talk about are real and becomes shocked and fearful.
