“A fast-paced, supernatural thriller that will keep you turning the pages long after you should have gone to sleep.”

-Dan Wells, New York Times bestselling author



Unrelenting follows one woman’s desperate search for her missing sister. Through it, she discovers a carefully-guarded plot tied to age-old magic.
