The shot flew past Ema’s face, just missing her but hitting Jesu in the throat. He toppled over the ledge and fell to the floor of the barn. Hastening down the ladder to Jesu, she was ripped from the rungs and a man sat across her stomach while he began squeezing and cutting into her neck to decapitate her! She recognized Jalmari’s attack style. He levitated them, blades still embedded in her neck, through the roof to escape the soldiers; as her vision darkened, she did a partial shift and surprised him with her huge, powerful wings. The extra strength allowed her to attack him and he disappeared as he phased.
Once again, he reappeared and came at her with blades. She shifted her head into a wolf which startled him enough that she could grab him and threw him to the outer wall of the barn. The Alpan soldiers from the castle then stunned him with a taser and applied electronic cuffs to his wrists. Ema returned to the barn but Jesu was gone and she raced to the castle to find him.
I absolutely love it when a book starts out deep into the wild action, guns a-blazin’ and everything happening at once! This is definitely one of those books! Fast-paced and full of suspense, the reader will love it! The roller coaster ride never stops! Twists and turns keep the reader constantly guessing as to what will happen next! As additional characters are introduced, you’ll either love them or hate them. There seems to be no boring bodies anywhere! This story line continues from previous books, and I assure you, it’s addictive! Grab a copy and enjoy a well written story that is well worth your time!
