Seriously? Four dragon warriors need to stalk my every move?
I get it. They think I’m dangerous, but I’m only on their island to learn. Not to destroy it.
This is another unfortunate side-effect of being the freak who descended from all three supernatural lineages. The bloodthirsty dragons, the destructive wolves, and the disloyal witches. Some believe that, when I transition in a few months, there’s a slight, teeny tiny chance I could unleash hell on the supernatural world. Call me crazy, but I’d know if I harbored that kind of power inside me.
… Wouldn’t I?
My entire life, all I’ve wanted was to be normal. Hence the reason I didn’t think twice about trading in my crown for a stack of books. I’ve got three terms on this island to prove the naysayers wrong, including my chaperones—Kai, Ori, Paulo, and Rayen.
These four are gorgeous, but also ominous as heck. Babysitting me has clearly taken their focus off something they’ve deemed more important. So, now they go out of their way to make my life a living hell, with hopes that I’ll give up and leave.
You could cut the tension between us with a knife, but what’s weird is I don’t hate them all the time. There are even odd moments when I catch them watching me. And not in their usual “wish-you-were-dead” sort of way.
Even if I survive the academy, there’s still no guarantee these four and I won’t kill each other before graduation.
The good news: my four guardians are more than just a brood of cocky dragons. I was drawn to this island to find them … my mates.
The sucky news: an ancient evil has marked me as its vessel, but I suppose one girl can’t have all the luck, right?
I was warned that second term would be a challenge, but nothing could have prepared me for this. As if things aren’t already hard enough, one innocent slipup threatens to cost me big time.
Every day, it gets harder to tell friend from foe. Especially with more than one enemy who wants to make sure I lose everything.
Thing is, no one has any idea how fiercely I’m willing to fight. I guess they’ll learn the hard way that I’m no pushover.
Giving up simply isn’t in my blood.
Love conquers all … but can it conquer the Darkness?
My mates have laid it all on the line, including their hearts. The four dragons of the Omega Hive have been my fierce protectors, but I’m not sure that’s enough anymore. I’m starting to wonder if life on this island might just be the death of me.
Or … the death of everyone.
My limits were tested during the academy’s first two terms. Now, as I enter the third, it’s clear I’ve only scratched the surface before now. For starters, I’m spiraling, and thanks to a few bad decisions, I’ve lost nearly everyone’s trust.
I should have given up by now, but I can’t seem to do that.
It isn’t lost on me that my days are numbered, but that won’t stop me from saving as many as I can from what I sense on the horizon.
Even if the terror that awaits is … me.
There’s no way to tell whether good will triumph over evil in the end. Let’s just hope that, as the darkness continues to grow within me, I’m still able to tell the difference.
