Abbey and her best friend, Callie, had countless adventures at Majestic Isle, until an accident closes the island amusement park. When seventeen-year old Abbey hears an underground club has popped up amid the broken down roller coasters and rusty bumper cars, she drags Callie out for the night of their lives.
Unfortunately, it might be the last night of their lives.
The club isn’t the haven for misfits Abbey hoped for – it’s a buffet and the club goers are the main course.
What was once an innocent sanctuary of fun is now home to something dark and sinister.
If Abbey and Callie survive the night, they may find they are the key to stopping an infestation of creatures with an insatiable appetite for human flesh.
An ocean of bodies swayed like seaweed across the warehouse floor. It might have looked as though they were drowning if not for their rhythmic movement that fused with the beat. In the center of the floor, Abbey tilted her head back and danced. A tranquil smile graced her lips. She raised her arms over her head and her long, periwinkle hair drifted with her movements. Blue and green lights bounced through the smoky air, pulsing with the rhythm of the music. Bodies brushed against hers, but she didn’t mind. Here, dancing among hundreds of others, she fit in. She belonged. No one could take that away from her.
“We need to go,” Callie yelled in her ear.
Abbey’s eyes flew open and she missed the beat of the song, which caused a ripple in the dancers around her. Callie was upset, though only someone who’d known her since third grade would be able to pick up the telltale signs: twirling a strand of hair around her pointer finger; the flush high on her cheekbones.
“Did you and Eric have another fight?” Abbey didn’t want to leave. Not yet. Callie promised her it would be the two of them, but Eric had shown up and Abbey spent the night dancing alone.
“Can we go, please?” Callie’s bottom lip trembled as she wiped her tears away. Abbey took her arm and led her to the edge of the dance floor.
“Callie!” a voice yelled over a break in the music.
