Turns out Dad was right when he said, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Twenty-two-year-old Marc Cheeks did not anticipate the truth to be so literal. But like his father and his father’s father before him, and his father before him, Marc discovers that dying – or almost dying – makes him physically stronger. Now, he hopes he can avoid the steep price each Cheeks man before him paid.
Struggling with his newfound talents, the loss of a beloved family member, and the potential loss of his career, Marc finds himself thrust headlong into the darkness that is being a Stitch where dying is the easy part.
A young man fights the powers within and without that threaten to tear him part, all while he discovers the reality of what he is, and what he is not.
Whether a curse or a blessing, Marc’s ability to fight the darkness and addiction that comes with power will determine if he will be the hero or the villain of his story.
