Sam Hopkins is bored with his status as a preacher's kid. So when a group of guys notorious for being in trouble offers him friendship, he accepts. Before long, he has several new skills—including hot-wiring cars.
At school, there's an eccentric loner named Jennifer. When Sam defends her from being bullied, she begins to seek him out as her only friend. Her ramblings often seem illogical . . . but then start to contain grains of truth. One leads Sam to discover that one of his new friends has been killed. And then she tells him, "I'm looking for the devil." Sam doesn't know what that means, but he knows it's a matter of life and death that he figure it out.
Everyone else thinks Jennifer is suffering from schizophrenia. But Sam is starting to wonder if there could be something prophetic in her words. Discovering the truth is going to be both crazy and dangerous.

Blake is gone.
He sacrificed himself to save Winter, leaving her alone, unprotected... hunted.
An ancient enemy is rising, but Winter is no longer the innocent girl who was fated to die at Pilgrim's Lament. She will not wait to be saved. She will do what she must to survive, even accept an unsavoury alliance with those who destroyed her love.
In the gathering darkness, the enemy of an enemy is not always a friend, and Winter must find the strength to stand alone and fight for the one she loves. For she is the key to unlocking the secrets beyond the veil of shadows.
And she is Blake's only hope.
Crazy Dangerous: Oooh so intrigued! Is Jennifer crazy or is there something much more.... devilish going on? Either way, the result will be either crazy or creepy! I can't wait to dig deep into this dangerous mystery and to see how Andrew pulls it off.
Winter's Light: Pretty cover! I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Winter's Shadow, M.J Hearle has brought a mythology totally fresh and haunting to the YA scene. Winter's Light sounds like it's going to amazing... and the whole 'enemy of the enemy' suggests something perhaps even more dark and sinister is being introduced? I cannot wait!
