Recently appointed as Death, Gabriel’s life can’t get much worse. His underworld is in shambles, and he’s racing demons to collect souls in the human world. To add to his mess, he discovers that his predecessor raised an unwelcome Immortal from the dead, one who threatens the Immortal Council that his friend, the Ancient Rhyn, is trying to hold together. When the underworld shuts Gabriel out, he’s convinced he’s hit rock bottom. Until he meets her, and he realizes things can get worse. Much worse.
Now in human form, Deidre – Gabriel’s predecessor and long-time tormenter – is dying from a brain tumor. Rather than mourn, she decides to enjoy the rest of her short life by checking off every box on her bucket list. Little does she suspect that a weekend getaway to the beach will throw her into the hands of Death himself and overturn everything she knows about her world. Deidre has no idea who she was in her past life, but she must learn fast, or she’ll never understand why the Immortals, demons and Death alike are after her. The secret is buried in her head, and the only way to uncover it will kill her.To survive, she must reach the wounded man behind the mask of Death and show him that the world is filled with more than tragedy and pain.
On a quest to hunt down her mother, Lexi underestimates just how powerful the vampirism in her system has become. Intent on murder, she is instead drawn in by false promises and sweet lies. Katrina rules her nest through intimidation and fear, but she possesses a talent that no other undead creature has ever had before. This makes her far harder to kill than Lexi had anticipated. It will take cunning and ingenuity to end the master vampire’s life.
Lexi isn’t the only one who is suffering. Reece is going through his own form of torment. The perfect life he’d experienced in a succubus induced dream is just a figment of his imagination. Nothing is as he’d expected since leaving the Shifter Squad and joining his pack.
At the next full moon, Lexi becomes something that has never existed before. Part wolf, part vampire and part something else, she sets out to confront the mate who abandoned her. Reece Garrett is responsible for her becoming an abomination. She decides that it is high time he answered for what he did to her.
Lexi has faced many difficult challenges since becoming a member of the Shifter Squad. All were apparently designed to teach her the skills she needs to undertake the duty that Fate has given her. As absurd as it may seem, she is destined to save the world. Thankfully, she won’t have to tackle this daunting task alone.
The rival organization known as EERI are somehow involved in the coming threat. The Squad’s goal is to hunt down the rival organization’s leader and end them before they can destroy mankind. Before they can embark on their search, they are sidetracked by a new mission.
As they begin to close in on their enemy, a new threat arises that heralds the beginning of the end. Their target knows their weaknesses and they will do anything they can to destroy the team’s morale. Lexi was told that she has all the tools she needs to fight her nemesis, but not even her new speed and strength will be enough to save the life of someone she loves.
With the apocalypse fast approaching, Lexi now knows who her nemesis is, but he isn’t going to be easy to defeat. She and the Shifter Squad must find a way to halt the stone golems and their minions as well as the hordes of zombies and hell spawn that will soon overwhelm the country.
They won’t be alone during the battles ahead. They have gained friends and allies during their missions who will come to their aid when called. Chosen by Fate to save humankind from annihilation, Lexi must call on every skill that she has acquired during her trials.
Even with her army behind her, she despairs that it might not be enough to win a war against the increasing flood of demons that are being unleashed from hell.
