Acknowledgements

Thank You!

That’s the short and simple version. The rest of this is not that. I’d like to take this time to thank a few people who have helped me during this process.

My mom, Elizabeth, and Krista have been my biggest support system during this time. They’ve helped me during my crazy moments and my freak-outs during the publication process. They’ve all told me to go to my happy place and listen to Josh Groban. They along with Sara W. have read through these books helping me search for errors during the editing process and giving me hope that maybe these books don’t suck after all. Words cannot express how thankful I am for their support, but I hope they know it. I’d also like to thank some more family members who have helped me: my sisters Rachel and Maddie, my dad, Sara Stoin, Danielle Jasperson Postnikoff, and Janet Buss. You’ve all been very supportive of me during this time and I thank you for that.

I’d like to give a big thank to the readers who have made this series possible. Without you all, I’d be nowhere. I have a few people that I’d like to thank personally:

Michelle Guo-you sent me my first fan email. I freaked out when I first read your message. I couldn’t believe that anyone would take the time to contact me about my books. I never imagined that my books would be good enough for that, but reading that first email helped push me forward and want to continue doing what I’m doing. I’ll always remember that feeling, and I’ll forever be appreciative that you were the first to ever contact me about my books.

Also, I have to give a big thanks to Taskia Choudhury, Lily Fletcher, Gina Silva, Christel Darrough, Leslie Collins, Jodie Louise Boxall, Yazmine De La Rosa, Shelly Webber, Stephenie Lammers, Cheryl Mackey, Robin Parks, and many more. I realize that that’s a lot of names and I haven’t even come close to mentioning everyone, but you all have been very supportive during this process. I’m sorry if I didn’t mention you previously.

I want to thank everyone that has downloaded and rated my books, ever sent me an e-mail, commented on my blog or social media sites, and/or told someone else about this series. You’ve helped me more than you know. I see all of the likes, comments, and shares you all do for me. I can’t thank you all enough! I wouldn’t be anywhere if it weren’t for you. I hope I can continue to create works that are deserving of your amazing support.





Chapter One

Colton

“You killed her!” I yell again. Tom bends down and picks the man off the ground. I’m not sure what he’s going to do, but I’ve never seen Tom look this angry before. The man is a mage— that much is obvious. I try to push away from Bragden and Liam again, but they tighten their grip. Blood is dripping down the man’s chin from his split lip because of Tom’s earlier punch. He killed my soulmate; I can’t just stand here. She’s dead because of him.

The man glances down at Ryanne before he speaks. “It wasn’t supposed to hit her.” A menacing look crosses his face before he narrows his eyes on Incendia and points. “It was supposed to hit her!” Bragden lets go of me and walks toward him. Recognizing the look on Bragden’s face, I stop struggling. Liam lets me go and I move back and sit down next to Ryanne. She can’t be gone. This isn’t real.

It can’t be real.

Seeing the feral look in Bragden’s eyes, Tom steps out of the way. Bragden takes one look at him and punches him. Emma and Natalie gasp and flinch when the sound of his nose breaking echoes though the room. He slumps to the ground unconscious. With taunt muscles, Bragden stands over the man, fists clenched, trying to control his anger. A few seconds later, everyone turns and looks at me, crying next to the dead body of my soulmate.

It wasn’t supposed to end like this. I lean back against the edge of the bed, trying to control my breathing. It feels like I can’t get enough air into my lungs—like I’m slowing suffocating under pain. I just got her back and now she’s gone. Just yesterday, Travis rescued her from Dravin’s compound—broken and bloodied, but alive. Less than twenty-four later, she’s dead.
