Gabriel Slade has returned to take his rightful place as Captain of The General’s army. Luna stayed behind to nurse a broken heart and a precious secret that could mean the end of all mankind.
Human’s possessed by the spirits of the dead are searching the earth for a child that will have the power to bring the apocolypse upon the world. Gabriel must find this child if he hopes to keep order and peace with the humans, but his heart keeps getting in the way. He must save the world from darkness, while making the one decision that could cost him everything.
Gabe once thought that roaming the earth as a hideous, angry beast was his curse. Now, without the love of his life he feels more helpless than before.
Gabriel woke with a throbbing pain through his whole body. He wanted to scream and cry and die all at the same time. When he opened his eyes, the light burned them.
He was in a bed in a room that looked like an old inn. It smelled of smoke and sweat and liquor. He gagged.
“You’re awake.” Michael’s voice was most welcome. “Good. I was worried there for a minute. Don’t try to get up,” he said when Gabe started to push himself up. “You’re still weak.”
“Where are we?”
“Not sure. I had to get you somewhere away from those creatures. They’ll find us though. They want you dead.” He chuckled. “What did you do to them?”
“I’m not sure,” Gabriel answered honestly. He sat up despite his friend’s protests. “How long have we been here?”
Gabriel sighed. “We need to get back into the fight.” His chest tightened as he said the words and he grunted.
“What is it?”
“We’re supposed to be here,” he answered. “I guess I’ll rest a bit more.”
As he laid back there was a knock on the door. Michael got up to answer it.
“Hello, Deli.” He ushered a woman into the room. She was beautiful, with dark hair and and soft brown eyes. When she smiled, it was almost angelic.
She was heavily with child. Gabe was sure she was close to her birthing time.
“Hello, Michael. Ah, your friend is awake.” Deli set a tray down on the table by the bed. “I’m Deli. I’ve been taking care of you the last few days.” She smiled at him. “How are you feeling?”
Gabriel swallowed around the lump in his throat. “I am feeling much better. Thank you for helping Michael. He really is quite useless.”
“Deli.” Gabriel said her name out loud. “Is that short for Delilah by any chance?”
“Yes, it is. Why do you ask?”
Gabe only smiled at her. “It’s a lovely name.”
“Thank you. I was named after my mother. She died giving birth.”
He frowned. “I am sorry to hear that.”
“I’ll leave you to eat.” She smiled, and it was somewhat suggestive. “I hope you enjoy it.”
“If you made it I am sure I will.”
Deli giggled. “No, of course not. But the cook is wonderful. Eat up. Get your strength back.” She cast him one more longing glance before she left.
“What’s wrong?” Michael asked. “Is she tempting to you?”
Gabe frowned, eyeing his friend with disdane. “No,” he groused. “I’m going to have to kill her and her baby.”
