Can a Wildblood—a teen with magical protective powers—fall in love in a Jamaican jungle, one that is dense and dangerous with ghostly monsters? Can romance spark between two teens as they break free from the walls that keep them apart?

Two lush teen love stories set in otherworldly worlds bring two Caribbean authors together: Lauren Blackwood, author of Wildblood; and Lauren Yero, author of Under this Forgetful Sky.
