Freeks is an atmospheric story of powerful mysteries and dark secrets by Amanda Hocking, author of the phenomenal 'Trylle' trilogy and the Kanin Chronicles. As darkness rises, will Gabe help Mara find the truth? In the spring of 1987, the carnival comes to small-town Caudry, Louisiana. Then events take a dangerous turn.

For Mara Beznik, the carnival is home. It's also a place of secrets, hidden powers and a buried past - making it hard to connect with outsiders. However, sparks fly when she meets local boy Gabe Alvarado.

As they become inseparable, Mara realizes Gabe is hiding his own secrets. And his family legacy could destroy Mara's world. They find the word 'freeks' sprayed on trailers, as carnival employees start disappearing.

Then workers wind up dead, killed in disturbing ways by someone or something. Mara is determined to unlock the mystery, with Gabe's help. But can they really halt this campaign of fear?
