Out of the shadows of USA Today bestselling author Eileen Wilks's World of the Lupi series comes an enthralling novella of a man and woman whose true natures could be the death of them
Certain people in Midland, Texas, are dying. All of them were Gifted, and all of them have been drained of their blood. Kai is a reluctant telepath with a skewed Gift—she sees thoughts instead of experiencing them. So, unlike other Midlanders, she can intuit that they have a "Guardian." She also knows that the Guardian Nathan isn't human. His true nature hasn't been divined. Neither has hers. But when another one of the Gifted is found dead, Kai herself becomes a suspect. And only Nathan can save her.
Previously published in On the Prowl.
