Five years ago, Fiona was just a kid. But everything changed the night the Pit Viper came to town. Sure, he rid the quiet, idyllic suburb of Hamm of its darkest problems. But Fiona witnessed something much, much worse from Hamm’s adults when they drove him away.

And now, the Pit Viper is back.

Fiona’s not just a kid anymore. She can handle the darkness she sees in the Pit Viper, a DJ whose wicked tattoos, quiet anger, and hypnotic music seem to speak to every teen in town…except her. She can handle watching as each of her friends seems to be overcome, nearly possessed by the music. She can even handle her unnerving suspicion that the DJ is hell-bent on revenge.

But she’s not sure she can handle falling in love with him.

Nine years, but it felt longer. What was it her cousin Jake had said that one time over spring break? “High school years are like dog years. You got so much doing to do in them, they take forever.
It felt like forever. Before the Pit Viper, it had been a different place altogether, a town from an alternate dimension.
By the time shed turned nine and had really begun to understand what was happening, the Goring steel mill hadnt been just a place to party, it had been a nightlife destination. Every Saturday evening, after gymnastics—her burden until she was twelve, dear God—her mother would  walk  her down Main Street, tightly clutching her hand as the partiers swarmed around them,  teenagers and  twenty-somethings rocking silver jackets and skintight jeans and glow-in-the-dark beads in their dreadlocks. They had blasted tooth-shattering break beats out of their cars as they crowded every stoop and parking lot. Rude, loud, in everyones way, never from here, quick to laugh at the dumb small-town folks. And when the sun went down, they would flock to the ramshackle cathedral of the mill and rage until dawn.
Fiona had overheard complaints from her dad and other members of the Hamm town council: passed-out club rats huddled on every inch of the train station platform, puddles of vomit dotting Oak Avenue, not a single bottle of Benadryl or NoDoz for miles. Some of her fathers friends on the town council had thought of the partiers as “the bad element” and  would  cross their  arms  and  grumble about these  kids transforming their  town into a drug-addled freak  show.
