The first installment to the Forgotten Divinity series will be released on November 5, 2015 as part of an anthology.
Shadows, follows Daya Myers, and Mason McNeill as they battle demons, angels, and other creatures that go bump in the night.
Acclaimed author Kristy Centeno, and Bestselling author of The Star Child series, Stephanie Keyes, bring you two stories that prove love and light can overcome the pain and shadows. With secrets hidden in the night, and dangerous creatures prowling the woods, trusting the enemy can mean either life or death.
Two dark worlds…One night that will change their lives forever…Where evil lurks, only goodness can prevail.
Unable to fight the curiosity, I take a peek back and my breath hitches in my throat the second I spot the large, shadow-like creature standing in the entrance of the doorway behind me. Its large frame fills the space, providing no way of escape by means of the entryway.
Panic settles in the moment I see its spherical red eyes glaring at me. The figure is hunched over, its claws scraping against the concrete as it moves menacingly toward us. Unusually long arms stretch out in front of it, menacing in their bulkiness with protruding muscles that stretch from the forearms to the shoulders. Its tiny waist seems miniscule in comparison with the rest of its body. Even its hindquarters is large, supported by two equally impressive, albeit, shorter legs equipped with sharp talons meant to drag even the heaviest of its opponents to the Underworld without any hope of escaping.
Nightcrawler. The name echoes inside my head at the same time confusion sets in. Is this Underworld hound dog here for me? Or my would-be attacker?
A past shrouded in darkness.
A mission that can mean the difference between life and death.
One week to find the answers they need.
With the memories of her historical love for the Soul Broker who was once commissioned to harvest her soul, eradicated from her mind, Daya must embark on a perilous journey through dangerous territory to find those who might shed some light into the mystery that surrounds them. But what she uncovers along the way may prove too daunting for her to come to terms with.
Trapped in a loop she can’t get out of, Daya’s only tool for survival is trusting Mason. But will betrayal be a determining factor when they both have something to gain by giving up on each other?
NOTE: This book is the continuation of the short story featured in the anthology, Blood in the Shadows. Midnight picks up right where Shadows left off.
The demon growls in frustration, shaking the wounded hand as if to clear it of pain. His midnight eyes glance up at me with undisguised menace.
“Hunter,” he manages to growl.
I pay attention to his face, spotting a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth and two sunken eyes with dark circles underneath, and a jaw that juts forward in an abnormal manner as he glares down at me. He’s ominous and pissed off. Not a good combination.
“Get out of here, Dex,” I shout at my informant, not once ungluing my eyes from the figure five feet from me.
“Daya.” The demon’s lips curve up into the most sinister grin I’ve ever seen. “The fallen Angel.” He laughs, but the gesture lacks mirth. “You know what I find ironic?”
I hold off on replying, not really interested in anything he has to say.
“The hunter has become the hunted.” He closes and opens his fist, making his discomfort apparent.
He knows who wants me dead. This has my attention.
