A Foothold In Two Different Worlds, And No Safety In Either…
A fragile truce stands between humans, shifters, and the fae-touched who rely on their Houses alone for loyalty and protection.
Unless you’re lucky enough to be an ungifted. Born of the fae but not blessed with their powers, I’ve grown up as an outcast. I’m determined to make my own fate.
Just as I’m about to start a prestigious internship and continue my quest to address interspecies conflict, my twin sister, heir to our family lineage and not an ungifted like me, gets murdered.
My trip back to House Rowan should be a short few days, just long enough to say goodbye and break free once more from the melodrama of the House I was raised in.
There’s just one hitch in my plan—Quinn, an enforcer detective, keeps finding excuses to stay close to me. He claims he needs my help to figure out what happened to my sister, but it feels like something more is going on. And every time he gives me that sly, knowing smile, any resolve I have to avoid him melts away.
How can I refuse?
