Vivian Mercy has been running from the past for so long she doesn’t know any other way of life. When a panicked call comes from one of her only friends she finds herself returning to the city of her nightmares where her dedication as a doctor and resolve to help others is put to the test.
Etain Vi’Aerlin has been watching over Noctem Falls for centuries. Sent by his queen he became a silent sentinel in the shadows helping Magnus whenever he could. While the sickness around him claims more lives he discovers what it feels like to be helpless, as an ancient warrior he doesn’t have the skills to fight this unseen enemy.
At any other time finding a mate would be cause for celebration, but Etain wants Vivian as far from Noctem Falls as possible, unfortunately, as the only doctor with an intimate knowledge of diseases she has to stay in the city, and finds herself working tirelessly to discover a cure in the middle of the deadly chaos sweeping the levels.
As Vivian’s past is revealed she finds herself not only combating the terrible virus but also the rebellious faction of the Founding Families. Etain vows to stand by her, even if it means abandoning the post assigned by his queen.
It’s a race against time to unravel the lethal secrets the virus is hiding before the city itself is lost forever.

“Do we want to know?” Dimitri asked.
Kendrick shook his head. “Honestly? Probably not, stay dumb and happy.”
Viktor gave Kendrick a dirty look. “Are you always like this or do you have something against vampires?”
Kendrick thought about it a moment. “No, I’m pretty much always like this, no offense,” he smiled at them brightly. The warriors scowled at his flippant response.
Godard eyed Kendrick. “Since you are a member of the Alpha Unit, maybe you should come train with us tomorrow. That is, if your soft archivist hands can stand getting a little dirty,” he teased.
Kendrick gave him an evil smile and rose to his full height. He stood nearly half a foot over them. “You will find that I am not as easy to manipulate as two certain innocent witches. I look forward to seeing you first thing in the morning.”
Godard’s eyes widened. “Gods you are as tall as Warrick! I did not know witches could grow that big.” His eyes narrowed. “It is not magic is it?”
Kendrick laughed. “No, I don’t need it,” he bragged.
Dimitri was chuckling as he dragged his friend toward the door. “Well it was nice knowing you Godard. Let us go fill out your will.”
“I wonder if Adriel will let me run both Iota and Kappa,” Viktor teased.
Dimitri snorted. “I do not know why you think you are in the clear. I have a feeling our tall witch friend here will ensure that Etain is at morning drills. I am certain Etain will have much to discuss with you for flirting with his mate.”
Viktor paled and trudged behind his friends. When the door shut Kendrick was smirking. “Did you see their faces?”
Ellie looked worried. “Will you really hurt him? All of the warriors have been so wonderful with the children,” she fretted.
Kendrick leaned down and kissed her forehead. “Your kindness shines out in front of you like a beacon.” He sighed. “No, I won’t kill them…much. Just impress upon them what it feels like to be at a disadvantage. The twins have assured me that no one here has been cruel, but some of the friendly big brother treatment of them gets my back up.”
Rheia sighed. “That’s because you spoil them. Don’t hold that against the other warriors.”
Kendrick sniffed and stuck his nose in the air dramatically. “I can and I will.” He turned to Vivi. “I may not kill them, but that may not hold true for Etain.”
Vivi winked at him. “Who’s to say Etain will even be able to walk in the morning?”
“Vivi!” Ellie exclaimed blushing.
Rheia bumped her shoulder. “Good point.”
Vivi looked around the lab. “Speaking of mates, it’s about time I go and claim mine.”

“I am starting a religion.”
Etain looked across the breakfast table and stared at the small human. He and Micah had been invited by the prince himself to take their meals on Level One going forward. It was easier to get everyone’s briefings done while eating than to have multiple meetings later throughout the day.
Aiden’s head snapped down to look at his mate. “No.”
“My furries need guidance. And, I’m bored.” She looked over to Gavriel. “You’ve been around a while. How do religions start?”
Aiden’s expression became more panicked as he realized that his mate was serious. “Meryn, you cannot start a religion. It just isn’t done.”
She looked up at her mate. “Why not?”
“Because!” Aiden sputtered.
“I think I would be a great religion.” She turned to Magnus. “Right?”
Magnus’ lips twitched. “There are worse examples of both religions and religious leaders out there. I do believe you could do better than they.”
Aiden shot the prince a dirty look before focusing his attention on his tiny mate. “You don’t even update your Facebook regularly, how could you run a religion. What are you basing it on?” The Unit Commander sounded absolutely flustered.
Meryn tapped her chin. “Good point. Other regions have martyrs and shit and I don’t feel like dying. They’re also usually really smelly, and my stomach is finally settling down. I don’t need to make myself sick with my own body odor.”
Aiden relaxed a fraction. “See, there you go.”
Gavriel chuckled. “These things usually evolve over time Meryn. I do not believe you can just announce it on social media.”
“But I’ve worked out my first commandment already,” she said brightening.
Eva’s eyes were dancing as she leaned forward. “Do tell.”
Aiden growled. “Don’t encourage her.”
The air around Meryn shimmered, and suddenly she was dressed in a black monk style robe and cowl. “Thou shalt not be a douchebag,” she intoned in low monotone syllables.
Across from each other, Colton and Declan folded their hands in front of their chests. “Amen,” they said in unison.
Adriel frowned at the grinning duo. “These two should stay in different cities. I fear for Noctem Falls.”
“Oh Holy One, your latte is ready,” Ryuu said placing a tall cup in front of Meryn.
The hood was thrown back before the clothing shimmered to the sweats and tee shirt she had been wearing. “Yes!” She picked up the cup and inhaled reverently.
