Elsie True lives with only one goal in mind …
… to avenge her father’s death.
Branded a traitor among the brotherhood of the Cause, an organization dedicated to the destruction of all magical creatures, her father was unjustly murdered for falling in love with a celestial being, leaving a teenage Elsie to learn the creature-hunting business with the help of her father’s old friend.
Her life revolves around besting the Cause and keeping the world safe from any creatures that get out of hand. When her mentor signs her up for another case, she jumps at the opportunity to steer business away from the corrupt organization.
Not long into the investigation, she realizes she might have walked right into a setup, including coming face-to-face with a creature she doesn’t know if she should kill or protect.
Elsie feared little in life, but she isn’t prepared to face the demons of her past, especially those hell-bent on killing her. Outwitting her enemies means solving the case, but in a world where she has more foes than friends, who can she trust?
Movement behind Sheng reminded her that now wasn’t the time to get lost in doubts and uncertainties. She glanced at the woods and her gaze collided with a set of glowing red eyes that were identical to those that had peeked inside the cottage moments priors. And those weren’t the only ones. At least six more pairs blinked in unison with the first. They were outnumbered three to one, and the odds kept stacking against them as more of the beings remained hidden from view someplace behind her and hadn’t yet made themselves known.
“Others are blind to the daughter, but we see what others fail to.”
Elsie whipped around at the sound of the hoarse male voice. A robed figure stepped forward from within the shadows he’d temporarily blended so well with a second ago and stood no more than thirty feet from her. Her gaze roamed over the tall, lanky man, and she was hit by a hint of recognition as she took in the pointed ears and the double rows of tiny, triangular teeth that would’ve been more at home in a shark’s mouth.
“Who the hell are you?”
The man clasped his skeletal hands in front of him. Staring at his ovoid eyes was like peering into an unending well. Thalia’s description had made this creature no justice.
