Adelaide Jenner feels nothing… she is completely numb inside. Her te’sorthene, her fated love, abandoned her and joined their enemy. On that day her sister turned off all Adelaide’s emotions in order to save her from a heartbreak that could push her over the edge of sanity. But great power wielded without compassion or love can only lead to pain.
Nate Pierce believes Adelaide used her extraordinary powers to deceive him all these years. So he destroyed a relationship he thought to be false and hungers for revenge. Now, Nate serves Maddox. He is unaware that his new leader is using him as a pawn in a bid to enslave all Svatura.
The only hope of finally defeating Maddox is for Adelaide and her sisters to combine their growing powers against him. But the the key to a Svatura’s power is the heart, and Adelaide’s is still missing..
Adelaide felt the impact as Lila plowed into her from the side.
“Nice try,but a bad idea to risk wrestling with me,” Adelaide telepathically chided her sister, before twisting in her grasp.
The two birds twisted and thrashed as they plummeted, beating at each other with claws and wings, and snapping with their sharp beaks. Neither one could get a good shot at the other. Finally Adelaide saw her chance. She managed to snag the top edge of Lila’s wing with her talon. She curled her sharp talons like a fistandripped a gash open, pulling feathers out with her vicious attack. She felt the hollow bones of Lila’s wing snap with satisfying ease.
Lila’s sharp cry pierced the air. Adelaide let her go, allowing her sister to fall away into the empty space below. She took a moment to halt her own fall, splaying her wings wide to catch the air. Then she drifted for a moment and watched with almost dispassionate curiosity as Lila dropped away.
“Help!”Adelaide heard Lila’s call.
Suddenly Lila morphed back to her human form. She flailed through the air as she found no way to halt her free fall.
Finally, some small spark of regret and worry pushed through the frozen void that surrounded Adelaide’s heart. She tucked in her wings and dove after her sister with very little chance of catching her. And no idea what she’d do if she did.
