Rory Miller thought her life was over when a serial killer set his sights on her and forced her into witness protection. But a fresh start on Juniper Landing Island was exactly what she and her family needed. For the first time in years she and her sister hang out at the beach, gossip about boys, and party together. She's also made friends with a local clique-including a magnetic and mysterious boy named Tristan.

But Rory's world is about to change again. Picturesque Juniper Landing isn't what it seems. The truth about the swirling fog that rolls in each morning, the bridge that leads to nowhere, and those beautiful locals who seem to watch Rory's every move is more terrifying than being hunted by Steven Nell. And all Rory ever wanted was the truth. Even if it means learning that she can never go home again. From the best-selling author of the Private and Privilege series comes the second novel in a heart-stopping trilogy about a girl who must pick up the pieces after the only life she's ever known ends.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "At the conclusion of Shadowlands (2013), Rory Miller discovered the true nature of the swanky resort island of Juniper Landing: it's a limbo for the deceased to deal with unfinished business before they move on to the Light or to the Shadowlands. This time, Rory finds out that she is one of the Lifers, chosen to usher souls to their final destination. Being a Lifer is a forever thing; Tristan, Rory's enigmatic crush, has been one since 1766. But disturbing changes on the usually changeless island herald a coming evil: one of the Lifers is breaking the rules, sending good souls to undeserved torment in the Shadowlands, and some Lifers think Rory is responsible. This suspenseful sequel further expands the island's mystery and creates some emotional family scenes for Rory; her romantic angst, however, feels out of place among more serious events. Interludes from the rogue Lifer add little of significance to the story, which ends with another cliff-hanger that, though somewhat unsatisfying, will nevertheless create buzz for the third book.--Hutley, Krista Copyright 2010 Booklist"
