Genre: Urban Fantasy

Book Description:

Alise has achieved the impossible. After her wings were chopped off, the fairy survived and now finds herself in the human world, once again hunted like prey by the sadistic Gorem.

Locating him with her help means that the two Guardians of Balance, Rafe and Vale, will not only be able to turn him in and make him pay for maiming her, but make him accountable for the deaths of other fairies as well.

Gorem has plans of his own for the rogue fairy. With the help of a wizard, Fabian, and an army of monsters by his side, Gorem will stop at nothing to recapture Alise.

With already so much on the line, Alise not only has to keep herself safe from harm, but will also have to protect her new human friend, Cassie, in the process.

Who will win the battle of good versus evil? Is capturing Gorem worth risking what remains of Alise’s life?

Excerpt:

“Wait.” I raised a hand. “Who offered the ransom?”

“Those whom you want to destroy,” came the answer.

I suppressed a shiver. They finally acknowledged our presence, and they saw us as a threat.

“The good news is,” Herve said, “they want you alive.” He paused. “On a second thought, that might not be such good news. You know how they are.” He grinned, but there was no humor behind it.

“Right. Thank you for the warning, but we really have to go,” Trotuş said and signaled the other pandurs to take their position.

While in charge with my security for years, he rarely went over my head giving orders. I usually called the shots. But when Max got up to follow them, I realized that they both took things seriously. Jesse didn’t move.

I leaned back in my chair and looked at my informer. “Why are you telling me this? If the reward is that big, why aren’t you cashing it in yourself?”

“I’m not a mercenary, and I’m not a hero either. As you must have figured out by now, I’m a schemer. It suits me better working for you than serving them.” He pondered. “How long do you think someone like me could survive among them? They don’t mind killing their own.”

Standing across the table from me, Max’s eyes darkened. Herve was right. The new breeds would kill anyone who got in their way, regardless of class or status, and right now, we were very much in their way.

I removed the napkin from my lap and dropped it on the table. Another dead end. Fine, we go. I sighed to myself. But before we left, I had one more question to ask. “What was the second name you had for me?”

“Ah, yes, Mr. Keller.” Herve nodded. “In fact, I took the liberty to arrange a meeting with him for ten o’clock.” He checked his watch. “We should hurry.”

The name didn’t sound familiar. “Who is he?”

“He’s—what do you call them, new breeds?—only that he’s an older one. He’s been around for a while, set up a successful business, made some connections in town … you know the type,” Herve said.

“But he is a new breed?”

“Yes.”

“And he wants to talk to me? Why?” I asked, having learned my lesson.

“Older new breeds, if they get this far, are harder to manipulate than newborns, much harder. And sooner or later, they discover there’s more to life than just killing. I’m assuming he wants some kind of a deal.”

“What can he offer me in return?”

“You’re not paying attention,” Herve chided me. “He’s old and well-connected. He’s the one you want to talk to about the bigger picture. Even if he’s not actively involved, he’s more likely to know something about it.”

I could find no flaws to his reasoning. I turned to Jesse. He wasn’t happy with the new development, but he wasn’t protesting, yet. “Just this time, and then we return to the camp,” I said in an even tone.

“Then I’m going too,” he said, and it wasn’t a request.
