Reporter Lara is finding the limits of small-town journalism grating. After all, life in Eagle Ridge is fairly low-key and personal, not exactly the stuff of Pulitzer Prizes.
It doesn’t help that her jerk boss seems determined to make her life a living hell, and he refuses to let her check into strange deliveries being made to a local Atlantean-worshipping cult, the Azilians.
Super-soldier hybrid Magnus and his people are tasting true freedom for the first time. Still on the run from the ruthless Horatius Group, they’ve settled in the Pacific Northwest, hoping for a fresh start, including using the cover of the nearby Azilians.
When Lara’s investigation brings her face-to-face with the stunning Magnus, they find themselves drawn to each other, but both quickly realize something is happening in the woods around the hybrids’ new compound that may threaten not only the hybrids, but everyone in town.
