Gaia save the Queen… Emma Stonetree’s father is missing. Worse yet, her uncle’s gone too, leaving her and her two cousins, Jasper and Jade, floundering for an explanation. All Emma can think of are their fathers’ stories—tall tales of magic, mystery, and a whole host of shifter races. Stories she might not have believed, if not for her own research into the matter—research that hardly prepares her for the trials of magic she and her cousins will endure as they set off that Midwinter’s night to discover their roots.

Except the trio swiftly learn they aren’t really human either, and once inside the ursa Sanctuary, they are just as bound by ursa laws as the earth is bound by the seasons. Emma and her cousins must make a choice: accept their legacies as ursa royalty, accept the love they find inside the sanctuary, or reject their passions and retreat to their safe, mundane lives, never to return to the realm they were meant to inherit.

When orphan Crystal visits a great aunt she's just met in Blacksville, West Virginia, she sets some rules for herself:

Sometimes being a psychic is murder.
Especially when you're one of the psychics on the killer's hit list.
While attending a funeral of a colleague, psychics Trudy Tucker and Levi Wolfe realize that this death is one of several "accidental demises" of clairvoyants in the small, quirky town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Trudy begins receiving visions from the murderer, putting her on the hunt to expose the killer. Levi, on the other hand, wants to be far, far away from the Ozark town, and his anxiety has little to do with the string of murders.
As the noose tightens around this band of psychics, Trudy and Levi are drawn into it, making themselves both the hunters and the hunted. It's a mind-bending game of cat and mouse, but which one is which?
