BLURB:"Fans of The Mortal Instruments [by Cassandra Clare] will love this!"
After escaping from the Hollows and the Michaelea lightwarriors, Jordan takes Alyx and Israel to Aradale, a secret Rogue community, where they appear to be safe − for now. But did they bring the enemy with them? “Mini”, the strange and speechless young girl they rescued from the Hollows, is not as she seems. Why was Elder Michael keeping her locked up? What is she hiding?
Alyx and Israel are driven further apart as Israel continues to obsess over making Adere human and Alyx hides two secrets from him: that he may be part-demon and that she may be carrying his child, a tri-blood keye that can be used to unlock Hell.
Out in the mortal cities, pieces of Black Stone, the only material that can disrupt the angels’ healing abilities, continue to be stolen to make weapons for Samyara’s dark army. Alyx and her friends must stop them, but this means infiltrating holy and guarded places to steal the Black Stone − a monastery in remote China, a mosque in Saudi Arabia, an art gallery in Florence and a cathedral in Peru.
Can they win this deadly race against the Darkened?
This close, Alyx could feel Israel’s breath on her cheeks. That perfect scar marking his top lip was just inches from hers. Her heart was still thudding, and she knew that it wasn’t just because of what happened with Michael anymore.
“How...” Alyx swallowed. She had to say something to stop herself from leaning forward and taking his scar into her mouth. “How did you know to come?”
“When I woke up, I was already on my feet and running to your room. I must have heard you crying out in my sleep.”
“And you came.”
“Of course I came,” he said, looking incredulous that she would even doubt it. “I know things have been weird between us, but I haven’t stopped caring. I’ll... never stop caring.”
Alyx felt herself draw closer to him, taking in his scent. Sweet and musk. She couldn’t help it. His nearness filled her with a warmth that brought back to life that part of her that had gone cold when they agreed to just be friends. Like spring after winter.
For the moment, she didn’t care that he loved someone else. It felt so good just to be near him, breathing him in. He might love someone else, but he cared for her. He said so himself. He proved that by coming in here tonight. And for the moment that was enough.
“If you called,” he said, “I would always come. Always. No matter what. Understand?”
Alyx nodded. He rested his forehead on hers. The world closed into the space between them.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
“I write about fantastical things, especially creatures with fangs, magic or wings.
I want to tell you tales that will rip away the glamor from your life, keep you running and fighting and gasping long past the devil’s hour and maybe, just maybe, reality will look a little bit different when you return.
Sit with me around this witchlight. Let me tell you a story.”
At the beginning of 2013, Hanna left her "respectable" career, packed up her life and sold everything except for what fit in a suitcase to be a full-time writer and go "gypsy-ing" across Europe. Even she thinks that she is a little crazy sometimes.
