Hawk’s existence is secret. He hides from his past with his Farm Family – a group whose life choices have forced them into secluded servitude on a marijuana plantation in the Texas hill country. But their crimes pale against those hidden in the farm: dangerous and miraculous secrets they must keep if they want to survive.When a worker’s sister arrives with a powerful stranger, preternatural forces explode in a bloody standoff. As the dark interloper hunts them, the deeper shadows of the farm reveal themselves – a crop flourishing in the years-long drought, and the dead not staying dead while the living struggle to survive.Betraying the farm’s secrets will cost Hawk his freedom. Keeping them will cost the lives of those he loves. The decisions that lead him to the farm press Hawk once more: save himself, or save his family.
