Kate had survived. She had lived through pain and torment and now she was on the other side, where all the happiness was supposed to be. But with Alec’s vengeful punishment for escaping him, she can’t touch anyone without hurting them.
Alec still wants to create a Level Five and he’s dangerously close. That power under his control would mean unraveling the world as it stands. The world Kate has not yet started to enjoy. She won’t be able to rest until her body, her mind is fixed, and Alec won’t get his beloved power without her help.
The two warring sides of Rogues and Shadows will have to meet. Kate will have to confront Alec and his cruel ambition once again. But every moment with the Shadows is detrimental to those she loves, especially Kylan. So she must find a way to outsmart the person who taught her everything she knows, the most feared Shadow in the world.
Kate is strong. She survived once. But even the strongest people can break with the right pressure, and Alec is ready to tear her life apart.
“What do you want me to do? Alec just told everyone around me that I’m a Legend. Who knows how far that message has gone? I am screwed.” I clenched my fists. “Any future I wanted with these people, this life, is gone.”
I wanted him to leave me alone. I was scared, but I also didn’t want him to watch when I turned into the Shadow I used to be.
“Any future as Kate.” Derek took a step toward me. “We’ve all changed our names and you’re supposed to be pretty good at changing your looks. I’m sure you’ll be just fine.”
“That’s not the point.” I shook my head, touching the side of my face.
I kept shaking my head, closing my eyes. Those vicious words played over and over in my mind.
She’s a monster. If you see her, kill her on sight.
I didn’t want them to be true. But I saw the way the humans looked at me, the way Derek looked at me now. I snapped my eyes open, clenching a fist.
“Then what is?” Derek stepped even closer to me and the tether inside me broke.
“Alec!” I screamed. “That’s the point. He’s never going to leave me alone. Any face I choose, any place I live, none of it matters. He’ll always find me.”
“That sucks.” Derek shrugged his shoulders too easily. “It does. But these people don’t deserve your rage.”
I paused, staring at him. He had his hands raised to restrain me or surrender, I wasn’t sure yet. Either way, his eyes were kind. He didn’t see a monster.
