My name is Niquette Delongpre and on the night before my mother's 47th birthday, my entire family vanished without a trace. Everyone assumed the swamp swallowed them. They were wrong....
Deep in the swamps outside of New Orleans, Niquette Delongpre and her family uncover a well on their property - a well that has roots all the way down into the soils of the Mississippi River. A well that brings ancient things to the surface - things that should have stayed buried.
When Niquette is exposed to a small parasite, it triggers in her mysterious and dangerous powers. As she tries to come to grips with these new abilities and what they might mean for her future, she realises that she is not alone. Someone else, someone who was exposed to the same mysterious parasite during a clandestine visit to the swamp, is also discovering his new talents, and he's not as nice as she is....
"A creepy, intriguing and dangerously addictive supernatural novel." (Sun)
