A compelling and immersive alternate-world story from the award-winning and bestselling author of Zac & Mia.
All I can tell you is what I remember, in the words that I have. Hayley tends to her bees and follows the rules in the only world she has ever known. Until she witnesses the impossible: a drip from the ceiling. A drip? It doesn't make sense. Yet she hears it, catches it. Tastes it. Curiosity is a hook. What starts as a drip leads to a lie, a death, a boy, a beast, and too many awful questions. Hive is the first in a gripping two-book series by award-winning and international bestselling author A. J. Betts.
