Synopsis from Jo Schneider

After succumbing to the sudden and terrifying urge to rip people’s eyes out of their sockets, 16-year-old Lysandra Blake finds herself tied down in a psych ward, convinced she’s crazy. The doctors have no answers, and Lys is ready to give up when the mysterious Jeremiah Mason appears, telling Lys that she’s not insane—she’s addicted to a rare and deadly drug that she has no recollection of using. Mr. Mason offers to take her to his facility where he can treat her. Desperate yet suspicious, Lys agrees to go with Mr. Mason to his facility where she meets with a fellow addict, the tall and handsome Kamau. Together they discover that Mr. Mason may not have told them the truth about their condition—they’re thrown headfirst into a world of daunting powers that are not only unbelievable, they are dangerous.

The memory filled Lys with shame, but it also reminded her why she'd agreed to go with Mr. Mason. She tried to ignore the rising feeling of panic and told herself that she had to do this.
     Mark continued to watch her. “You look nervous.”
     “Uh.” Lys didn’t know how to answer that. Nervous would mean that she would laugh a little too loudly at Mark’s jokes and say something stupid in reply. Considering right now she wanted to scream, cry and rip her wrists out of the handcuffs so she could jump out of a moving vehicle and escape into unknown woods Lys figured she was way past nervous.
     “Relax,” Mark said, “we’ve had meaner characters than you in here. We can handle it.” He exchanged a look with Ayden, and the other man nodded. “You’ll be feeling better in no time.”
     Whatever sedative they’d given her muted the Need, but her mind felt more alive than it had since she'd gone into the psych ward. Lys decided to try questions to distract herself.
     “Do you guys, uh, know what’s going to happen to me?”
     “We’ll let Mason explain that to you. He’s here at the hospital,” Ayden said in a soft voice.
     Hospital? Part of Lys still didn't believe in the supposed hospital lurking here in the backwoods of who knew where. She balled her hands into fists. Maybe her dad was right, maybe she should have held out for a different option.
     No. Mr. Mason believed her; he said he could help her. Lys would hold on to that until she knew otherwise. Her mind cradled the fragile hope, not wanting to let it fall and shatter into shards of nothing.
     “Here we go,” Mark said. He pointed out the front of the SUV.
     They came around a sharp corner, and Lys leaned forward, following Mark's gesture.
     Sure enough a hospital sat nestled in a clearing at the end of the road. Nothing big, just a two story, white building with a drop off spot. Three cars sat in the parking lot, not even filling it a quarter of the way. Mr. Mason stood outside the main doors.
     “What is this place?” Lys asked. A hospital in the middle of the woods? Secluded, small, off the beaten path. Creepy.
     “It used to be a privately run facility that treated people suffering from PTSD,” Ayden said, maneuvering the SUV toward the door. “Mostly for war veterans that couldn't get help anywhere else.”
     Old veterans? Lys' mind jumped to the guys she saw begging for money on street corners. Some of them had signs saying they were veterans. Their haunted expressions—their eyes that Lys knew had seen things that no person should have to see—made Lys shiver. Partly because she now wanted to see what they saw, and partly because she now felt like she’d just entered a horror movie. This sank below creepy. “So why do I have to detox here?”
