I wanted to believe he could make it in the Immortal world, because if he could, I could, too," she started.
And then I saw how good his heart is. He's a train wreck, but he's honorable and capable of such good. Kris pulled me into this world and assumed I'd do what I was told like a good little human. But when I told Rhyn I wanted to leave him, he asked for another chance. It's like he woke up then and realized he wasn't in Hell anymore or trapped by his brothers' expectations.
She stared at the dark features and glowing turquoise eyes of the eldest of Rhyn's brothers, who had died weeks before.

I met Gabe, and he took me to Andre, who raised me for a few years, before my brothers decided I was better off in Hell, he summarized.
To be more powerful, so I can wipe out my enemies and force my brothers to stay in the Council.
Death was right. Kris didn't have what it took to keep the Council together. He may have just lost one of his brothers, because he lost focus of what he should've done. Maybe he should've known Jade was a traitor or Hannah was a demon. He hadn't known of Andre's danger or been able to bring the Council together to fight the demons that threatened them all. He hadn't been able to keep Hannah safe or Toby or Katie.
I do my best, but I'm as flawed as any Immortal. I just hope our brothers see that I'm trying.
