When Mya discovers a badly wounded Edenist in the jungle, she hopes by saving him, he will help her enter the city of Naralina. She takes him to the safety of her home, only to find another Edenist is already there…and he’s looking for her.
Keeva’s mind is more than intrigued about the invisible woman who came to his rescue since there’s no such thing as a female Edenist…not that his body cares. When he learns of her history, his protective instincts flare to life, bringing with them a need to avenge her.
Bent on revenge, Haldone seeks Mya’s help to punish those who harmed his brother, at least that’s what he tells himself, but his feelings for her go far deeper than the “friend” she dubs him. Unfortunately, he’s not the best at communicating his feelings…or anything else for that matter.
The men’s thirst for vengeance on those who took her parents gives Mya hope and a new sense of family. It isn’t long before she develops a growing attraction, the first in her life. But surprises in the enemy camp and dangers to them all mount until she realizes they each must decide what is more important, revenge or each other.
Haldone’s loud voice lowered. “I understand your parents were taken by them, leaving you alone.”
Mya nodded. “They did. We were hunting and gathering. My mother and Air father were gudding a pig. My Mind father was hunting another. I was gathering burries.” She paused looking at the wall behind Haldone. “When my mother skeemed, I look. A tornedo heet my Air father, teerding him to picses. Strong Mind gab my mother and told another to find my other father.”
She finally looked at them. First, at the stunned Haldone and then at himself.
Keeva forced his voice through his tightened throat. “Mya, I am so sorry. You were too young to see that. What did you do?”
She grasped some strands of her hair and held onto them as if they could help her. “I starded my transion and dispeered.”
He laid his hand on hers, his heart aching for her as the reality of her young life became clear. “Have you been invisible ever since?”
His gut twisted and a deep-seeded anger gnawed its way up his throat. For the first time in his life, he understood what rage was. He looked at Haldone, whose own rage was barely controlled if the storminess of his eyes was any indication.
At the moment he wanted to unleash Haldone on every lawbreaker that ever lived. He glanced at Mya, whose eyes had turned a deep purple, the glistening over those beautiful orbs too heartbreaking to resist. He wrapped his arms around her and held her head against his shoulder.
He was surprised and pleased when she returned his embrace. He stared at Haldone over her shoulder and gave the slightest of nods. They would punish the lawbreakers for what they had done, to him, to Haldone’s brother, but mostly for what they’d done to a young girl on the verge of her transition.
