"There was a time when I thought, I knew what I wanted: a
time when everything made sense. But I have learned there
are no such things as truths, only perceptions. In just a single second everything I thought I knew instantly shattered. I’ve become somewhat lost, and I can’t find my way back. There was a time when I knew happiness, a time when things mattered.
But all that’s gone now. There was nothing more I could do but
surrender I had to leave. I didn’t know where I was going to go, but I knew I couldn’t stay.

Gift Hartford is a freshman while her best friend Cassandra Crown is a sophomore. She falls for Derek, a junior with black spiked hair, beautiful brown eyes, a perfect toned body, and warm golden skin. Surprisingly, Derek asks her out and after some time, they become a couple. Then everything changes. Cassandra begins to act cold and distant. Gift finds a man following her. But even more disturbing are the changes she finds in herself—the strength she never knew she possessed and the otherworldly beauty that seemed to develop overnight.

An unexpected tragedy shakes up Gift’s already fragile world and she falls ill for weeks. When she emerges from a raging fever, she is stricken with grief for losing something so precious. She walks for miles until she reaches an unfamiliar place that unlocks the truth, and unveils enemies.

Will Gift survive the challenges that come with embracing her bloodthirsty nature? Readers can unravel the answer as they immerse in Gift: Book One The Blood Exodus.
