Even when she knew she was dreaming, she couldn.t wake herself up or shake the fear that this time, Rhyn wasn.t going to come.
As the two stared each other down, she wasn.t sure who had the better chance of winning: Gabriel, an Immortal sworn to serve Death, or Darkyn, the leader of all the demons in Hell.
He wasn.t backing down.
As Death.s best assassin, Gabriel wasn.t the type of person anyone ever wanted to run into, let alone when awaking in a dark room after a nightmare.
Her running partner, Ully, wasn.t there.
She wasn.t about to stick around for this one.
She wasn.t sure if she should thank him for protecting him or curse him for the kiss.
People around him had a way of dying horribly, and he wasn.t entirely sure what to do about it, now that it mattered.
And don't try to tell me that black cat wasn't you!
It wasn.t him.
She wasn.t expecting his ministrations—however rough and sloppy they were—or his mouthing off to Kris.
What wasn.t your idea?
What happened to Toby wasn.t your fault.
Unless Sasha posed a direct threat to the Council, Kris was forbidden from buying an assassination, despite suspecting his brother wasn.t as innocent as he proclaimed.
After all his sacrifices, after losing Lilith and Katie to Rhyn, he wasn.t sure what he.d do if Hannah chose someone other than him as her mate.
He wasn.t fooled by any of his brothers, especially Sasha and Rhyn, whose treachery had been too personal for him to forget or forgive.
Sasha wasn.t that stupid, though Kris wondered what game his brother played.
Disappointed, he wasn.t sure what else to ask.
Hannah no longer wore her engagement ring, and Katie wondered why she was so happy when she must know by now Gio wasn.t coming back for her.
Kris wasn.t there, but Sasha was.
She reminded herself she wasn.t defenseless with him this time.
He wasn.t sure what they expected of him; he.d never been included in any Council meeting.
Kris was crushed, and Rhyn wasn.t sure how his eldest surviving brother hadn.t expected the rest of them to walk away.
It was all he heard anymore, that Katie would be safe and happy only if he wasn.t around.
He.d thought he crossed the only line that mattered by selling out the Immortals but found there was another he wasn.t ready for.
Maybe this…" he kicked Sasha.s body, "wasn.t as stupid as we thought."
Katie knew from experience there wasn.t much to see.
I just wasn.t expecting to be confronted with … what were those things?
She wasn.t hungry but walked toward the cafeteria so she wouldn.t be alone with her thoughts.
It wasn't a coincidence he was there.
The youth sitting on Toby.s bed wasn.t Toby.
He knew she wasn.t there, and the longer she stayed away, the more time he had to think about what to do.
He wasn.t the kind to pity himself.
For once, it wasn.t his half-demon blood.
He.d sensed Katie.s appearance in the castle a short time ago and had avoided going directly to her, for fear he wasn.t quite ready to say what he needed to.
Kris wasn.t about to lose Hannah the same way.
The evidence Lilith wasn.t meant for him was clear.
He stopped to lean against a tree to rest, unable to shake his own surprise at discovering Sasha wasn.t dead.
I am sorry I wasn.t here when you needed me.
It wasn.t in his nature.
He wasn.t like the other demons.
Rhyn wasn.t coming back for her, yet her heart felt as if it.d fall out of her chest.
He wasn.t sure he ever saw her with it on at all.
He wasn.t about to comfort a man he tolerated but didn.t like.
How did he undo what he.d done when he wasn.t sure how she became his mate in the first place?
Yet she wasn.t sure how else to get help.
It wasn.t hard to figure out why he did it after so long refusing to become Death.s slave, Darkyn answered.
His honesty terrified her; he knew he wasn.t going to lose and didn.t care what she knew before he took her to Hell.
Rhyn wasn.t there.
He wasn.t sure what that meant, but it seemed to be a good thing.
