Charlie's secret puts them all in danger!
The treacherous journey has ended and Charlie is finally safe behind the walls of The Mercy Research Hospital. Yet, even as she feels the relief of safety, something's not right inside this secure world. More is revealed about the research conducted in The Dead Forest, and the role she plays flips her world on its head and makes her question everything she knows as truth.
And even as Charlie allows herself to relax, she meets Dr. Drake, the medical researcher who insists she's creating a better world. Of course, once you've fought off Draghoul and all the stuff of nightmares, a doctor with questionable motives is just one more challenge to take on. Once again, with much against her, Charlie must act for Star, Thomas, and all those she's come to care about to prevent the destruction of everything…and everyone…remaining in the forest.
