“Need a break from the frigid Canadian temperatures? Need a pick me up?”

Janessa stopped ignoring the advertisement.

“Need a break away from it all, filled with the adventure of a lifetime? Are you still single? Out of this World Cruise Lines has just the adventure package to break you out of your winter doldrums! Check out our singles adventure packages at today and have the best winter break of your life!”

Singles cruises. It sounded kind of cheesy, but the adventure part sounded like just what she needed. She definitely wanted out of her cold, lonely world for a while. Throwing caution to the wind, she booked herself a ticket, never imagining for a moment just how far her vacation would take her from the life she had once known.

A family vacation in the remote British Columbia wilderness with no cell signal or electricity was not Alexis’ ideal Labour Day weekend. Not that she had much choice in the matter. Rather than find herself grounded, the 16-year-old resigned herself to a dull weekend alone with her parents, surrounded by nothing but trees. While her friends back home threw their back-to-school parties and had the time of their lives, she’d be forced to miss out on all the excitement and spend her last days of freedom trying not to die of boredom.

Out of her element and focused on her frustrations, it took her a moment to notice that all was not as it should be out there in the deep, dark woods. There, beneath the dock, the eyes of a fish peered out from beneath the shadows. It watched her closely, almost as if sizing her up. Her mother’s assurance that fish don’t watch people did nothing to ease her mind, and she soon became aware of other creatures that lurked in the shadowy recesses all around her.

The arrival of two other girls her own age from across the lake should have been a welcome distraction. Instead of relief, however, Alexis found they made her uncomfortable and was suspicious of them. While city life may not have prepared her for the wilderness, it had taught her to trust her instincts. Wanting to get to the bottom of the sense of mystery the sisters presented, Alexis decided to forego a jaunt on the lake with her parents to investigate on her own. This led her to discover the dark and dangerous secrets of McGillivray Lake, hidden beneath nature's picturesque façade.

Thirteen-year-old Jade is off to the woods for a week-long camping trip with her dad.  With a backpack full of reading material stowed away in the camper, she settles in for the drive they've made countless times and toward one of her favorite places to be. Not even the local librarian's creepy story about her sister’s abduction back in those same woods when they were children can diminish Jade’s enthusiasm or keep her from enjoying herself.

Until everything started to spiral out of control.

An accident along the way leaves their truck wrecked in a ditch and her father with a broken leg. Trapped in the wilderness and in immense pain, he's forced to send Jade on foot to find a cell signal to call for help. Armed with little more than her phone and Swiss army knife, she heads off along the rutted dirt road, hours away from civilization.

As daylight begins to wane, she realizes she may be stuck in the woods alone in the dark. If that wasn’t bad enough, Jade discovers she's not alone. There's something else out there with her, something evil and sinister. It's stalking her, remaining just out of sight, but always close by, and always watching.
