Mr. McCormack (Clipped) seems to find it impossible to disappoint; his incursion into the young adult genre is as compelling and powerful as expected. And so another page turner is delivered in the form of a paranormal fantasy that must be read in one sitting.
Luke Retter, a cursed who witnessed the terrible murder of his sister and mother in the hands of his possessed father, has survived and carries the consequences in the form of a missing eye and hand and the mark of a cursed. The UCIS, a state-run organization that monitors and enslaves the cursed, believes that the cursed are at risk of becoming possessed.
The demon that possessed his father is back and has possessed him, and so he turns to Zack, a deviant cursed that created an underground community for runaway curseds.
