Desdemona struggles to have a normal life because of the creatures she sees everyday–beings that no one else can see. They don’t talk to her and she doesn’t talk to them, but they still haunt her, especially after her father’s mysterious disappearance.
When her mother dies and she is forced to face her past, her “phantoms” take on a disturbing twist: they begin to speak to her. She’s in danger, they tell her, and she must go with them to their world before it’s too late. Before things get much, much worse.
