Rest in Pieces by Lucinda Dark-signed
Hate. Retribution. Revenge.
It burns in my veins and keeps me awake at night, hunting Crown City’s streets like the ones who took from me.
But it’s not these streets where I want to spill blood. It’s over there, across the bridge. Where the shadows of this world cloak their sick, foul secrets…and where they trade magic for mortal lives.
I can’t get across there. Can’t walk in their world. If I could, I’d take this knife and shove it between his ribs.
But I doubt I’d find a heart.
None of them had hearts. Not their leader, Shrike, or Mojin, the one I see the most, or Honor and Ruin, the ones I don’t see. The ones no one sees.
They’re the ones who corrupt. They’re the ones who kill.
They’re the ones who took my brother from me…
Only I found a way to get to them now. This new seductive club the Wolves opened called Dark City needs mortal women to entrance these beasts and I’m the one they’ll want.
The one who hides the truth behind her smile.
And a knife against her thigh.
Only when I take my chance I’m the one taken instead. But my enemy doesn’t want me dead…they want something else. Something those dark Unseelie eyes promise…and I might never sleep again.
