Kyle Henry has a new name, a new school, and a new life--one without the shadow of the Bonebreaker hanging over him. It's been a year since his serial killer father's execution, and it finally looks like things are turning around for Kyle.

Until he recognizes the girl sitting in the back row in homeroom.

Naomi Steadman is immediately intrigued by Killdeer Academy's newcomer. She does not know he is the son of the man who murdered her mother. What she does know is she and Kyle have a connection with each other--and a spark that Kyle continues to back away from.

Soon after Kyle's arrival, the death count on campus starts to rise. Someone is set on finishing what the Bonebreaker started, and murdering ghosts from the past may be the only thing that can stop the spree.

Told in alternating viewpoints, Kat Ellis's tale of mystery and horror is full of broken bonds and new beginnings.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kyle is more than ready to start over in a town where no one knows he is the son of a recently executed serial killer known as Bonebreaker. So he is horrified when he recognizes one of the girls in his new boarding school: Naomi Steadman, the daughter of a woman murdered by Kyle's father. Naomi and her friends are immediately interested in Kyle, and though he is drawn to Naomi, he pushes her away, afraid she will find out they are connected by the horrors in their past. But when bodies start turning up on campus murders committed in Bonebreaker's signature style that past catches up to them, and Kyle and Naomi may be more connected than they know. The promise of forbidden romance doesn't detract from the tension, and the final reveal is unexpected enough that most readers won't see it coming. Packed full of suspense, red herrings, and creepy taxidermy, this is an intriguing murder mystery and a compelling look at the ties that bind.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2016 Booklist"
