She was just an ordinary waitress, crushing on a construction foreman.
One night together changed their world.
Their entire world.
By the end, every person on the planet had heard the legend of Trina and Nico.
Fact is stranger than fiction in Origins, the short story prequel in the explosive new series, Tethered Wings.
Vega grows stronger the more sensari use it as their sanctum from the brutal caste system of Mandori. And leader Damon Forester will stop at nothing to keep it safe from their enemies.
Until Tara Newton, a hacker with a troubled past, stumbles upon some of his measures. No human should have been able to breach his shifter’s protective essence and locate the code hidden in Vega’s financial systems.
That makes her a dangerous oddity—one his other half demands more of.
As Mandori ups its game, threatening the entire sensari population of Vega, Damon loses his presidency, and possibly the woman his shifter has claimed for his mate.
Winged sensari Morgan Steele defected to Vega to escape an unfair caste system. Brilliant human scientist Priya Desai’s dream is to work for the genetic tech giant Morgan built with his freedom.
When Morgan saves Priya from an aggressive Sensari, the shields they’ve erected to keep their mutual attraction at bay come down. What should have been one night of pleasure results in a second tethering for Morgan, whose mate died four years ago, and a transformation for Priya. Neither should have been possible.
No longer human, Priya is a rare hybrid, scorned by the sensari. As Morgan helps her through the transition, his enemies fight to destroy his company, accusing him of genetically forcing a second tether.
