Under attack from all angles, Sabrina’s mission is simple: retrieve the child and stop Deacon’s rise to power. But in their world, nothing is ever that easy.
Deacon has reined in every available source of power to ensure his success in the war against the panthers; all except one. Amelia, born to Peter and Beth, is said to hold the power of a long forgotten bloodline, and Deacon will stop at nothing to get her.
Sabrina has been steadily turning friends into enemies with her opinionated views and is tired of living life on the sidelines. Deciding it’s time to leave behind this chapter of her life, she uncovers a devastating betrayal that sends her straight into the lion’s den. Soon, the knife twists even deeper revealing that Deacon is not the only master of deceit. A puppeteer has been pulling their strings from the beginning, creating a destiny that was never intended and replacing it with another, leaving their souls forever incomplete.
Fully aware that their lives have been tampered with, accusations fly and loyalties divide making them vulnerable against the enemy. Things spiral out of control and one unavoidable situation leaves blame and guilt weighing heavily on Sabrina’s mind. Despite being shunned by the people she called family, she is determined to help them win against Deacon.
In a moment of stupidity that could have ended her life, the future is revealed in two paths for her. Will she choose the right path and go the distance, or will she perish under her uncertainty, leaving Deacon as the successor?
I push at the small door in front of me, but it will only open a fraction. Wiping the tears that cloud my vision, I lean against it and use my body weight to open it further. The gap is wide enough for me to squeeze through. I move forward and peer out. The pounding of my heart rushes through my ears and I’m terrified that the intruders may still be here, but I can’t take the stench of the cupboard any longer. I manoeuvre through the gap and silently exit into the kitchen. I cover my mouth with my hand, trying to hide the sound of my rapid breathing, but the strong scent of blood in the air has filled me with panic. The door is ajar, and I reach a shaking hand toward it, opening it wider. I gasp at the sight before me. My father is lying on the ground. His open eyes stare up at the ceiling. I rush to his side and shake him. I beg him to get up, but he doesn’t respond. My gaze travels to his neck. Dried blood has crusted on the wound ripped across it. As I lift my hand I see that too is smeared red. Sobs wrack my body, and I leave his side to find my mother. I spot her lying behind the sofa. I fall to my knees at the sight of her ravaged body. Every inch of her skin is covered with claw marks but the worst of the wounds is the gaping hole in her chest where her heart used to beat. Had my brothers still lived they would have defended my parents. They wouldn’t have remained hidden in a pile of rotting meat shivering in terror while their parents were being slaughtered. My screams erupt and echo through the silence of the house.
