Published on: 3/15/13
Once upon a time, a common boy fell in love with a princess. It was a hopeless, forbidden love, grown in a world where sorcery and magic rule over all. Now, dark times are brewing, and destiny will bring them together, while fate works to keep them apart. Extraordinary battles will be fought, and extraordinary choices made. Join the author of The Alexa Montgomery Saga for the beginning of a tale of star-crossed lovers and magic, of hope and love and loss, of desperate wishes made on stars.
“Samson,” she said, her voice sounding strange in the unintelligible chaos of the room. Small somehow, and out of place.
The tiger’s huge head whipped toward her. He moved to her side immediately, leaping into the air again and severing the body of a demon with his powerful jaws in mid-flight. He landed on his paws in front of her, black blood marring his fur and teeth, and shook his head, whipping a piece of rotted demon flesh against the wall where it splattered like a bug on a windshield and slid down to the floor in a nasty pool.
Surah clutched the stone at her throat and closed her eyes, knowing that Samson would protect her while she did this. She ran through the spell Syris had taught her for closing portals, hoping that she would get it right. She had only ever performed it once in training with her brother, and he’d had to help a good deal.She recited the words, her brow furrowing in concentration, doing her best to ignore the growls of her tiger and the cries of the damned, the pure wrongness in the room. Sweat trickled down her back as she clenched her fists and recited faster, the stone in the palm of her hand burning now. Her head grew light with the effort, the power washing through her and sweeping her away. She planted her feet and continued, her breath coming short and heart pounding like a death toll.
