A swift knock sounded upon the door of the room.
“There’s no time!”
“Abby . . .”
She growled with frustration and took a step toward him. Abby wrapped her hands around his head, yanking it up so that they were seeing eye to eye. A gasp of surprise slid past Sam’s lips as he eyed the crimson streaks marring beautiful blue color of Abby’s eyes.
“W-What’s happened to you?”
“Experiments. I . . . I took a chance in contacting you. Wasn’t sure if this would work.” The knocks on the door were no longer hesitant in nature. “You have to go to the source.”
“Listen!” she cried as the door shook on its foundations. “Don’t worry about me. I’ll get out of this, I promise you.”
“Abby, I don’t-” he began as a hairline fracture appeared across the door’s surface.
“The source, Sam. You have to find it. You have to set her free.”
His frown deepened. “Who?”
Abby glanced at the door as a hand broke through the wood, inching toward the doorknob. “You know who!”
She turned to face him, pressing her lips against his. “Please! Do as I say!”
“I can’t leave you there!”
“Find her, Sam!” she cried.
She kissed him one last time, curling her right hand into a tight fist. A bright light enveloped him as her fist collided with the curve of his left cheek. Her troubled eyes was the last thing he saw as the darkness claimed him.
Some choices do not come easy.
From the moment he came across Abbessé Franklin, Sam Connolly knew his life would never be the same. Friends from an early, their lives were torn asunder the night the Falgori tore through their quiet neighborhood. The unexpected destruction changed who and what they were. He’s come to terms with what he’s become, though it hasn’t been without repercussions. The world has been crumbling into ruin around him, while vampires and Falgori run amok.
Abbessé’s unexpected appearance has thrown his carefully constructed life into chaos. He’s survived this far without any mishaps, yet he knows things won’t stay that way. There’s a reason he led others to believe he was dead. Doing so has kept him alive this far. Unfortunately, life has a way of catching up with you, a certainty he’s learning as he and Abbessé run for their lives.
When Abbessé is captured and he’s left for dead, Sam makes a decision he knows will further change how things are. There’s no way he’s going to leave Abbessé at the mercy of the Falgori. Not when they’re working with vampires and God knows who else. Rescuing her is going to take some doing, but it’s a risk he’s willing to take. The Falgori must be stopped one way or another.
