His life was returning to normal, scars healing. Until they found him, taking his loved ones back through the doorway.
To their world. To their horrors.
Now Jake must follow, hoping it’s not too late.
Will he reach them in time?
Before they are turned against him
He looked across the car, his eyes wide with terror as a pair of hands grabbed his arm, dragging him out into the night. Karaa threw him across the car park, tearing his clothing. He floundered on the wet gravel, unable to see much in the thick fog. He climbed to his feet, tugging his trousers up as she approached. His mouth hung open in astonishment as he saw her striding towards him. Her long blond hair framed a white face. Her fangs were wickedly curved, almost dripping in anticipation of his blood. Her eyes yellow, tinged with red.
“Oh my God,” Jay said, before taking flight towards the golf course, a long wail piercing the darkness. He was in good shape. He played squash twice a week and ran when he found the time. He would give anyone a run for their money in a race, except Karaa. As he reached the fence that divided the car park from the golf course she was on him. Pinning him against a large tree she ripped his shirt open to expose the flesh underneath. She was primed for the kill when she stopped, sniffing him. Her nose wrinkled in disgust as something in his scent repelled her. He smelt sour. She didn’t know that it was a combination of cologne and a sexually transmitted disease that made him unappealing. He sensed an opportunity, lashing out with a punch to her jaw. Two of his knuckles shattered as he connected with her grey skin. He screamed again as she grabbed the back of his neck, smashing his face into the tree trunk. His scream died in the night as it echoed across the golf course. Karaa pulled him back from the bark before slamming his face into it once more. His head shattered, sending chunks of brain, blood, and flesh flying into the grass all around her. She let go of the back of his neck, his lifeless body slumping to the floor. Karaa, former chieftain of the Eastern Cravens, stood magnificent in the moonlight. She looked down at the pitiful human and smiled. Holding her head to the stars she shrieked the war cry that was still locked in her subconscious. Her turning had not eradicated all of her former self. She walked back to Eddie and the girl as her cry echoed around the Lickey Hills.
I liked discovering more about the other world and the creatures that it holds.
This book kind of leaves you with a cliff hanger and I can’t wait to read the next book.
