But they are not alone. Somewhere among the thousands of devoted fans is a demented stalker named Celestian who is determined to win Ari’s devotion—or be her destruction.

Until she meets a woman whose power and passion matches Ari’s playing—and her heart—beat by beat. Badass drummer Rhynn Knight, SCE’s newest member, is ecstatic to be in the band of her dreams alongside the woman of her dreams. As the tour continues and Ari’s new relationship takes center stage, the danger around them grows. Even the superior skills of SCE’s bodyguards can’t stop the stalker’s psychotic wrath. Is Celestian lurking in the darkness of the concert hall or hiding in plain sight? Bella’s MB Panichi is a hard-rock girl at heart. A GCLS Goldie winner and talented drummer, MB is an obsessive science-fiction fan who likes placing human stories in worlds that don’t exist—but she would really love it if they did.
