Summer 1994: Deep within the secluded hills and hollows of southeastern Kentucky, seventeen-year-old, Miles Burkich spends his days working a menial and uneventful job at the Imperial Truckstop. But at night, he and his black-clad friends escape parental gazes to drive the lonely Appalachian roads of White Wreath in search of excitement, and excess.
But little do they know, there’s something unnatural beyond the tree line.
A strange, whispering voice that only Miles can hear begins to haunt his thoughts and beckons him further and further into the dense forests of the bluegrass. When the voice leads him to the ruins of an old distillery, he unknowingly awakens Annabelle, the nineteenth-century bourbon distiller’s daughter turned undead who was buried alive and has been slumbering in the abandoned rubble for over a century.
This is not a love story. As they’ll both learn, the primal side of Annabelle’s nature is not to be easily restrained as her hunger grows. So, peer inside, and follow Annabelle and Miles as the violent string of events set in motion by her awakening change the lives of everyone in the small town of White Wreath forever.
