Description

Eve has a new home, a new face, and a new name-but no memories of her past. She's been told that she's in a witness protection program. That she escaped a dangerous magic-wielding serial killer who still hunts her. The only thing she knows for sure is that there is something horrifying in her memories the people hiding her want to access-and there is nothing they won't say-or do-to her to get her to remember. At night she dreams of a tattered carnival tent and buttons being sewn into her skin. But during the day, she shelves books at the local library, trying to not let anyone know that she can do things-things like change the color of her eyes or walk through walls. When she does use her strange powers, she blacks out and is drawn into terrifying visions, returning to find that days or weeks have passed-and she's lost all short-term memories. Eve must find out who and what she really is before the killer finds her-but the truth may be more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined.

Review quote

With strong folklore elements, a striking setting, and thoroughly imagined characters, Durst has woven a story that does not shy from the bawdy, violent, or pragmatic realities of life. Publishers Weekly for VESSEL A fast-paced, thrilling adventure...the highly descriptive writing forms intense visuals for the reader so that characters, animals, and locations feel rich and realistic. VOYA for VESSEL Combining a sense of humor with dark appeal of supernatural romance, this book is funny, scary and thought provoking all at once...Even jaded fans of the supernatural find fun in this one. Kirkus Reviews for DRINK, SLAY, LOVE Twisty, absorbing and satisfying Publishers Weekly for ICE A unique and cleverly spun romance...with a splendidly courageous and smart heroine. Durst flawlessly weaves together romance, adventure, and a modern sensibility to create a highly inventive and suspenseful story of a girl on the cusp of adulthood. Readers will take Cassie and Bear to their hearts. School Library Journal for ICE A fresh, modern, and humorous twist on the vampire novel... Durst's snappy dialogue and vivid prose are entertaining and the straightforward plot moves at a good clip, scattering enough clues to heighten anticipation without spoiling the fun. Publishers Weekly for DRINK, SLAY, LOVE
