Who is Marisol Holmes?
She’s a teenager.
And don’t forget, she’s also the descendant of the great Sherlock Holmes.
Our heroine had been in some pretty tight spots before, but now? She’s about to face her biggest challenge yet: a powerful shifter with a taste for blood. No one has faced down the deadly wolf of the Baskervilles and lived to tell the tale.
Even so, Marisol Holmes plans to do just that.
“Three targets, if you’re counting,” Melinda said, shutting down the iPad. “Your mother, the Duchess. Your boyfriend, the jaguar. Your friend, the otter. We started with the easiest one. You know he’ll break soon. Otters…” She rolled her eyes, as if it was unthinkable that an otter shifter would have a backbone, would have the inner strength that would keep him alive and kicking when locked up in a cell like mine.
Not exactly like mine, I remembered. I had the setting sun to keep me company, to tell me the rhythm of the days passing by. In their prisons in the catacombs under the earth, the Conclave prisoners didn’t see a single ray of sunshine for the entire duration of their sentence.
Good riddance for people like Wallek. Pure torture for a person like Wyatt.
“But I have good news for you,” Melinda continued while she put the iPad back in the box. “You can save him. Even from here. Isn’t that marvelous?”
I contemplated this for a second, and then asked her, “What do you want me to do?”
Melinda’s lips spread into a wide grin, turning her from the Joker into the even-scarier clown from Stephen King’s IT. She wasn’t an owl shifter; she was a vulture. “Mannix will explain everything to you. The important thing is that, if you cooperate, Wyatt will be fine. If not, well… You know anyone could visit him in those damp, dusty Conclave prisons, and there’s no way for him to run. Poor otter shifter won’t stand a chance—”
“Enough,” I snapped at her.
