Five years ago, Fiona was just a kid. But everything changed the night the Pit Viper came to town. Sure, he rid the quiet, idyllic suburb of Hamm of its darkest problems. But Fiona witnessed something much, much worse from Hamm’s adults when they drove him away.
And now, the Pit Viper is back.
Fiona’s not just a kid anymore. She can handle the darkness she sees in the Pit Viper, a DJ whose wicked tattoos, quiet anger, and hypnotic music seem to speak to every teen in town … except her. She can handle watching as each of her friends seems to be overcome, nearly possessed by the music. She can even handle her unnerving suspicion that the DJ is hell-bent on revenge.
But she’s not sure she can handle falling in love with him.

“It is you,” he said, his voice dark and smooth, like a black diamond, “isn’t it?”
Fiona wanted to play it cool, to pretend like she barely remembered him, but that was impossible.  Her heart raced. Her head spun.
“Yes,” she said, her eyes locked on his. “Of course it is.” A smile crept across the Pit Viper’s face. “I knew it was
you,” he said. “At the party. I recognized you.” She nodded. “And I recognized you.”
His smile spread wider. “I was worried you might have forgotten me.”
She bit her lip. Whatever he was making her feel, awe or excitement or whatever, she knew he was feeling the same. “How could I possibly have forgotten you?”
For a brief moment, they were silent, entirely lost in the energy flowing between them—and then Fiona realized, in a blast of cheek-burning embarrassment, that all eyes were on her.

Praise for the Book
“I absolutely LOVED this book. The characters were great, the small-town with secrets vibe was fun, and the story kept me interested the whole time.” ~ Brooke’s Reviews and Sweeps
“An intriguing and dark retelling of the Pied Piper, full of teenagers using bad language, detailed rock music references, and a hint of magic. There is some new adult romance to be had, though that is not the focus of this story, and I’m happy to say that the plot kept me guessing.” ~ Dreamer J Book Reviews
“I liked that this was different from the usual YA book that’s out there these days. Its focus on the mystical magic of music made it something unique and special. I liked the characters, their interactions and the pacing of the writing kept me engaged beginning to end. Readers looking for something different from the YA norm will enjoy taking a chance on this book.” ~ Cheryl B., Goodreads
“A great read with a mix of paranormal elements!” ~ Erika C., NetGalley
"… if you like music, (that I must admit that I do not know much about music references in this book), with a fresh and ingenious story, a book that I think is very different from others, you should read it.” ~ Dreams in Bookland
