Twenty-two-year-old Aern is done watching his brother destroy the only thing that matters. He never wanted to take Morgan’s place among council, never wanted to rule their hidden world. But when the key to the prophecy is found, a young girl named Brianna whom Morgan will destroy, Aern knows he has to take action. What he really wants is for things to go back to normal. But now he’s kidnapped a girl, and his brother’s men are after him. His only hope is to join with the Division, but they have plans of their own, and it’s the last thing Aern is willing to do. Emily just wants her sister back. She doesn’t care about the prophecy, or know what’s at stake. But when she goes after Aern, the truth of the matter uncoils, and Brianna isn’t the only one who’s in danger. Suddenly, they’re at the center of a secret war, and unless they can work together, they’ll both have a sacrifice too big to make. (summary from goodreads)
I tried to turn to see where he’d gone, out some back entrance apparently, but I had limited mobility, suspended as I was. When I swung back to straight, there was a face inches from mine. I admit I may have jumped, if only a little.
“Where is my sister?” she hissed.
Under normal circumstances, my mouth might have fallen open.
She smacked me. “My sister. What did you do to her?”
I shook my head. Glanced at the chain hoist that attached my harness to the warehouse wall. “No,” I started, but the girl wasn’t looking at me now. She was watching the door.
The sirens were getting closer. And something else, a muffled buzzing.
“They’re coming here?” I asked.
The girl turned back to me, nodded. I was struggling to find my focus, to sway her to co-operate. She seemed a bit panicked, but for the wrong reasons.
“Here.” I tilted my head up to indicate my bindings. “Untie me. I will help you find her.”
Her eyes narrowed and her mouth screwed up as she considered my proposition.
The sirens were at the gate.
“Two minutes,” I warned. “It’s the only way you’ll find her.”
Car doors slammed. She knew I was right.
I had her.
And then she was gone. “Wait,” I shouted, “where are you going?”
She didn’t look back as she ran across the open floor. She moved with such unrestrained fervor, I half expected her to slam into the wall. As she reached up, she pulled a screwdriver from her back jeans pocket, and pried the lever that held my chain. An instant later, I slammed into the concrete floor.
