I lock eyes on Grandma’s wrinkled face, concerned over her safety. I don’t want to lose her and this asshole looks like he intends to take down whoever gets in the way of whatever it is he came here to do.
“Prove me wrong, granny,” he ridicules.
Grandma Rose takes aim. I swallow the lump in my throat. She’s not thinking about shooting him while he stands six inches away from me, is she?
“This walking freak show! Who does he think he is, waltzing into my house in the middle of the night and threatening my grandkid like this? And making fun of my Henry too?” Grandma looks flustered enough that I experience sudden flashing images of bloody pieces of gory matter and bone splattered on the wall behind me—both his and mine.
The intruder’s lips curve up slightly. “Brave. For an old gal.”
“You cocky bas—”
An ear-splitting roar resonates from somewhere outside, stopping the verbal exchanges between Grandma and the trespasser. The noise of breaking glass echoes throughout the house, followed by the sound of a massive body plowing across the first floor like an out-of-control semi, upturning furniture, breaking through whatever it encounters in its path.
Hayden has returned and he’s pissed.
And supernatural creatures exist in the cover of darkness…
He must find a place among his rivals or risk losing it all.Hayden has had his hands tied coping with life outside of the Institutes. He’s come far despite all the bumps along the way.
He’s allowed himself to believe he could live a normal life…until a new threat makes its presence known.
In an instant, his entire life is flipped upside down once more. Those he cares for are not safe with or without him. There’s no escaping his past. Or permanent solution to his problems. One way or another he’ll become the target for all those looking to destroy the hybrid who endangers their way of life and challenges everything they’ve ever known.
Now he must decide between kill or be killed, and risk becoming the very monster he’s fought so hard to prove he’s not.
Freedom has come with a price, but is he willing to pay the cost?
