In the second installment of the Aftermath series, Marshall meets, Darina, a girl on the run from her dangerous past. Though his pack mates would rather have nothing to do with her, he can't bring himself to send her on her way unprotected. When her past starts to gain on her, he brings her back to Westboro with him. On the way, they encounter trouble that will expose who he is to her. But will she keep their secret? Darina isn't magical, or special, but she feels a kinship to the people of Westboro. Maeleigh's instincts are telling her to keep the new girl close, even while they search for the remaining members of the Cearer, who disappeared in the magical vampire attack months earlier and try to make contact with her mother, the Goddess Danu, again. Things will get sticky and lives will be at stake when someone tresspasses on their territory. Will the pack be enough to withstand the threat? Or will more lives be lost?
