The debut YA novel by Jeff Giles, a former top editor at Entertainment Weekly.
Still reeling from her dad’s shocking death, seventeen year old Zoe races to save her little brother from a blizzard—only to meet a handsome, mysterious stranger they call X who suddenly shows up at a cabin in the woods. X is a bounty hunter from Hell, here to claim his next victim. Hopelessness, punishment, and pain are all he’s ever known…until Zoe shows him what his heart is really for. But escaping his duty and the ties that bind him might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them in this star-crossed fantasy romance.
You had me at “star-crossed fantasy romance”. Seriously. That’s all I need to hear and I’m dying to read this one! I hope it’ll be good. I’ve been pretty hit or miss with fantasy recently, which makes me sad, but I’m hopeful that this one will be epic! It certainly sounds like it has all the elements! It reminds me a bit of Delirium or The 5th Wave or something. Teaching someone about love, enemies that fall in love, duty and dangers and all kinds of emotions! I’m definitely looking forward to this one. Also, what a great cover!
