A haunting love story about desire danger and destiny. After Renee Winters discovers her parents lying dead in California's Redwood Forest in what appears to be a strange double murder her grandfather sends her off to Gottfried Academy in Maine a remote and mysterious high school dedicated to philosophy "crude sciences" and Latin: the Language of the Dead. It's here she meets Dante a dark and elusive student to whom she feels inexplicably drawn. As they get to know each other better Dante can't seem to control his attraction either and their desires gradually deepen into a complex and dangerous romance. Dangerous because Dante is hiding a frightening secret. A secret so terrible it has him fearing for Renee's life. Dante's not the only one with secrets though. Turns out Gottfried Academy has a few of its own… Like how come students keep disappearing? Why are the prefect-like Monitors creeping around campus during the night? And what exactly are the Headmistress and Professors really up to? Renee is determined to find out why. Dead Beautiful is both a compelling romance and thought-provoking read bringing shocking new meaning to life death love and the nature of the soul. EXCERPT: My mother used to tell me that matter was neither created nor destroyed only transferred. She was filled with old theories that she would make me recite back to her as if she were trying to tell me something about the world but couldn't find the right words. I never gave them much thought until she and my father were killed but by then it was too late to ask what it had all meant. It wasn't until I enrolled at Gottfried Academy that I began to make sense of who I was and what I was fated to become.
