WHEN THE GODS VANISHED, DAEMONS TOOK OVER PROTECTING HUMANS FROM THE THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT…UNTIL DAEMONS DECIDE THEY DESERVE MORE.

Orphaned young and raised by the military, Octavia only knows the world of duty and honor. When she discovers they’re sacrificing people to create the ultimate super soldier, men engineered specifically to rid the world of what they consider the supernatural plague, she rebels and vows to do everything in her power to stop them.

The last thing Octavia expects to find is daemons willing to help her survive. Or that she may be one of them. To make things worse, an ancient power has awakened inside her.

Sworn to protect her, the daemons decide to teach her how to use her new abilities. They never expected to fall in love with their infuriatingly vexing charge, who maddeningly risks everything to get justice for past wrongs. If they can’t find a way to remove the magic before the demigods discover the truth, Octavia will die when they rip it out of her, and the world will crumble into chaos.

Excerpt

Gunshot blast shattered the silence of the night, reverberating like thunder as it echoed off the abandoned buildings around her. Octavia hesitated, debating the wisdom of investigating when a barrage of shots followed.​

Icy claws raked down her spine, the chill invading her soul at the all-too familiar sound.​

Kronos.​

They’d found her.​

Their soldiers were nothing more than hired thugs, murderers pretending to be warriors for the good of humanity.​

Without a second’s hesitation, she charged off into the darkness, following the screams of terror and the cries of the dead and dying.​

She’s been hiding out in the abandoned part of the city, four square blocks of derelict office buildings. Most of them were in some stage of collapse. Stolen and forgotten cars cluttered the road. Anything resembling streetlights were only a memory. Law enforcement condemned the inhabitants here a long time ago and left them to police themselves.​

Those who live in this section of the city were just shadows of people.​

The forgotten.​

The hopeless.​

The desperate.​

And her.​

The inhabitants mostly left her alone. They came to her when they had a problem with the outside world, when they needed a dispute settled or justice carried out. The people who lived here knew that real monsters existed in the world… that humans were no longer on the top of the food chain.​

And she was one of the monsters.
