Boss, I was gonna ask if you needed an XO while Sasha is out, Toni ventured.
Sasha's files are on the shared drive.
Pick one of the spots Sasha identified.
Sasha thought of everything before he left.
His name … Sasha.
The seat of honor was given to Sasha.
He was accompanied by Dustin and two other men, one she knew as Sasha, a man who'd struck her with his devotedness to his family, and Levi, a man who'd been present in many of his pre-Schism memories.
"Sasha, Levi, this is Ikira Sofia," he said.
"An honor, ikira," Sasha said with a bow.
Sasha and Levi are two of my most trusted advisors.
Sasha manages the operations for Dusty out of Miami and Levi for Jule in Europe, Damian explained.
"That we knew," Sasha said with a firm nod.
Sasha, one of my sons hurt her.
Darkyn cracked down on him, and Sasha hurt his daughter.
Sasha had a side that was far more depraved than that of any of Wynn's other sons.
You undo what Sasha did.
"Sasha did many things to her, the finality of which was kill her," Darkyn said.
I will do to you what I wanted to do to Sasha.
He went after Sasha when Sasha hurt his daughter and didn't stop raiding the Immortals until Sasha was dead.
It had been where Wynn, the father of all the Immortals on the Council, had lain for hundreds of years before being dragged out by Sasha, the son who betrayed them all to Darkyn.
The one killed by Sasha?
"No. He kept me in Hell to undo what Sasha did," Wynn answered.
Andre, Kris and Sasha.
No. Sasha defected to the Dark One then killed Andre and was himself killed by a traitor.
Rhyn was being given a second chance, and Gabriel hoped he killed Sasha before the sands in the hourglass were gone.
If nothing else, his traitorous half-brother Sasha
He would stay in this holding cell on the outskirts of Hell until Sasha figured out some new grueling punishment.
Rhyn felt Hell's and Sasha's power roll over him like a boulder in a river.
"I heard Sasha's getting promoted by You Know Who," Jared continued.
In Sasha's zoo, he was at the bottom of the food chain of the otherworldly collection of creatures.
As much as they hate me for aligning with the Dark One, they hate you more for our father's death, Sasha had told him smugly more than once.
Restless, he rose and paced again, wondering why Sasha needed an ancient healer in his zoo, a place where creatures came to suffer.
Sasha wants her as much as Toby.
Sasha wants a human?
Neither Kris nor Sasha was capable of mercy or empathy.
Sasha's planning something big.
One, Sasha probably knows about her by now.
I want to see what Sasha's planning.
Even Sasha, who'd betrayed them all to serve the Dark One, still sought out his brother's counsel.
"She's a spy for Sasha," Erik said.
He'd long since suspected one of them was working with Sasha, but it wasn't him.
And I won't share how to counter her mutation so you don't end up at Sasha's feet.
Andre himself had ordered their exiles when it was revealed they were Sasha's spies.
Their turf wars and battle against the Dark One --and now Sasha --had stirred up some of the bloodiest wars in mankind's history.
"Hello, Jade," Sasha purred.
"Looks like the shape you left me in," Sasha said, "when you ditched me for dear Kris."
"He left you for someone," Sasha insisted, drawing near.
What do you want, Sasha?
Jade knew he should've walked away the moment Sasha appeared.
Sasha was their enemy.
He faced Sasha, recalling the years they'd spent together.
Sasha's voice stopped him again.
I don't trust you, Sasha.
There was nothing Sasha could ever say, nothing he could ever do in an hour.
But right now, Jade needed someone who understood him, as only Sasha always had.
Sasha left without even a smartass remark, and Rhyn rose, gazing with interest across the hall.
He paced again, wondering why Sasha would put a human in his zoo, unless this was the worst human in the world.
"My lord, Sasha, I have brought the human," her robed escort said in a monotone voice.
She turned as the man called Sasha lifted one of her curls from her shoulder.
"Like a doll," Sasha said, admiring her.
"I told you, Sasha," a familiar voice said.
"And you were right," Sasha replied.
Sasha turned to him with a smile, and Jade's gaze softened.
"Verifying your identity," Sasha said with a polite smile.
She looked up at Sasha, her heart hammering under his hungry look.
What would Sasha want with her?
He couldn't protect anyone from Sasha in Hell, and he itched to taste the woman meant to be his mate.
Sasha's servants wouldn't get within a foot of Rhyn; instead, they shaped the magic of Sasha's realm around him and gave him only one direction to go, that which Sasha wanted.
Today, however, he was more interested in seeing Sasha and hearing about the human than amusing the zoo creatures.
He found some of his wired energy dissipating at the long walk and change of scenery despite knowing nothing good had ever come from a meeting with Sasha.
Sasha was waiting for him in his study, sitting beside a fireplace that burned with black flames.
In fact, Sasha was happy!
Sasha sipped blood from a goblet, content.
Sasha glared at him.
"Sounds like brotherly concern," Sasha mocked.
Sasha flung his arm around.
Rhyn rolled his eyes and got up, grabbing an orange off the fruit basket on Sasha's desk.
Sasha's moods were varied and fickle, never lasting too long.
"As long as I keep her out of your reach, so you don't kill this one, too," Sasha added.
His gaze took in Sasha before sliding to the black flames.
He'd forgotten what color real fire was, but he found himself thinking it was orange, like the fruit in the basket on Sasha's desk.
Sasha was staring into the fire, pensive.
"She's different," Sasha muttered.
He wanted to keep Sasha talking, to find out what it was about this woman that was so special that both Sasha and Kris wanted her.
He'd still rather be humoring Sasha and eating his oranges than sitting in the damned cell!
"The timing is bad," Sasha said with a glance.
"Thought that might mean something to you," Sasha said, searching his face.
Sasha left, pissed this time.
Sasha had told him many things before to try to break him, but this time, he sensed the truth behind the words.
Sasha was not a hard creature to understand.
Sasha's men would kill you twice before you reached the front door.
He had a point, but she knew she'd be in as much danger from the monsters as from Sasha's men.
What kind of human protector allowed one of his own men to turn her over to something like Sasha?
She rolled her eyes and retreated to her bunk, hoping Sasha planned to give her time to rest before attacking her.
You know Kris and Sasha are brothers, right?
Sasha betrayed the others and aligned with the Dark One.
My guess is Sasha snatched you.
She wasn't going back to Sasha.
His throaty chuckle scared her more than the thought of returning to Sasha.
Immobilized, she waited with panicked dread for an attack like Sasha's.
And what if he attacked her as Sasha did, and she had no Lankha to heal her?
Her arms and legs were only faintly scarred despite the glass shards from the rocket attacks and the damage done by Sasha.
But he'd treated her so differently than Sasha.
Sasha she could see raping and bleeding her nightly to mask him from the Ancients.
She was panicking, recalling the horrors of the hours at Sasha's hands.
She had to get out of there before Jade found a way to alert Sasha.
"Gabriel, you have to tell Kris that Jade is working with Sasha!" she exclaimed.
"Try it, and you'll spend eternity with Sasha," Rhyn snapped.
I wanted to piss off Sasha at first.
Sasha dragged her down to Hell.
"Sasha and Rhyn," Katie said quietly, touching her throat again.
Or how Sasha swayed Jade.
I killed over a hundred of Sasha's creatures at the Arch with only a fraction of my power.
Why did Sasha send his creatures after you?
"And Kris doesn't believe me about Sasha," she mused.
She played them against each other and betrayed them both to Sasha.
Sasha and the Dark One will destroy everything they can.
"Sasha's figured it out," Kris said.
In any case, it looks like Ully needs to go back to the drawing board, and we use Rhyn for now to take out Sasha's henchmen.
She frowned at the thought of Rhyn being gone all the time but was glad Jade would be with them and not around to try to drag her back to Sasha.
She shook from pain and fear of what he'd do next, if he was more like Sasha than Rhyn.
A touch of coldness made the hair on the back of her neck rise, and she sat up, fearful Kris or Sasha had come for her.
He had to protect her from Sasha and the Dark One; he had to protect her from Kris and his people.
"You.re no better than Sasha," Rhyn said.
Rhyn snorted and faced Sasha, the brother charged with governing Australia, and the first to abandon the Council in favor of serving the Dark One.
Sasha was lean and pale, his gaze turquoise.
"You.re not surprised to see me," Sasha surmised.
Sasha chuckled, his gaze taking in the sarcophagus.
Rhyn stayed where he was, wary yet unafraid of Sasha, who.d been the zookeeper among the animals with him in Hell.
"I wonder if he were still alive if things would be the same," Sasha mused, his eyes on their father.
What.re you doing here, Sasha?
Sasha gave a faint smile.
One human is nothing to him in his version of the big picture, Sasha continued.
Sasha looked over her, uninterested, and both her hands went to her throat at the memory of what he.d done to her in Hell.
Sasha seemed to be ignoring her, though a small smile of amusement was on his face.
I seek an alliance against my former employer and to regain my place at the Council, Sasha answered.
"Cut the shit, Sasha," Kris snapped.
"As you wish," Sasha said in a voice so calm it drew the gazes of everyone in the room.
Sasha, you.ll follow me to your room.
Sasha bowed his head in a mocking show of respect.
Sasha was somewhere in the castle, and Gabriel was gone.
The demon closed the door—one of the Immortal comforts, for there were no doors in Hell—and left him to wonder how many men and women Sasha had in the bed before him.
He.d only spent one night there last month before Sasha flung him to the side in favor of a demoness.
They caught me when I went through the shadow world and brought me here, to Sasha.
He didn.t have to ask what Sasha did to her when her pretty blue eyes flared with white rage and then filled with tears.
"I took care of Sasha," he said somewhat defensively.
"Sasha sent you," she said, willing him to talk rather than attack.
The demons released us after Sasha fled.
Eh, Sasha killed a couple of demons he really shouldn.t have.
She looked up, shocked to see Sasha standing over them, his sharp gaze on the creature preparing itself for a second attack.
Sasha shouted, snatching her arm and hauling her up.
Ully helped her up, and they both eyed Sasha as the Dark One.s servant approached.
Every demon on this mortal planet is hunting Sasha.
What do the demons want with Sasha?
Those demons Sasha killed really deserved it.
"If you betray me, Sasha will seem like an angel," Rhyn said, straightening out of his fighting stance.
He.d suspected Sasha was there for more than one reason and didn.t doubt his brother had a plan.
He padded down the hall to his room, where Sasha awaited him.
"So I was right," Sasha said as he entered.
"Tell me why the forest is crawling with demons," he said and turned to Sasha.
"Whatever you like, brother," Sasha said with too much ease.
Sasha had chosen to serve the Dark One and betray the Council and their father.
Sasha may not have pulled the trigger on Andre, but someone he knew where to find their oldest brother, who had been protecting Katie when he was rendered dead-dead.
Sasha also knew the Code Kris was bound by: those who came in good faith would be given the chance to prove it.
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.
"She looks like Lilith," Sasha said.
"We aren.t too different," Sasha voiced quietly.
Sasha still stared into the fire.
He set his glass down and looked again at Sasha, who had yet to glance away from the fire.
Sasha wasn.t that stupid, though Kris wondered what game his brother played.
No, Darkyn, you will not have Sasha.
Sasha took something from the Dark One.
I will speak to Sasha to determine what it is he stole, and if it is rightfully owned by the Dark One, which it must be in order for you to reclaim it.
Have you had a chance to test the immunity blood Sasha brought?
I need confirmation before the Council meets, and I need to know if you can alter whatever it is Sasha's people did, Kris said.
He clenched his fists, not wanting to think about Sasha or Kris or how quickly he, too, could have the tables turned on him as he had done to Sasha.
Kris refused to turn over Sasha or the vial.
had died, and the only person he.d betrayed was Sasha, whose death Kris might eventually reward him for by welcoming Jade back into his life and his bed.
I want my revenge against Sasha and Kris both, but there are innocent people there.
Let me go to Sasha.
Sasha and Kris were his enemies, not the rest of the Immortals!
He had come to Darkyn in desperation, after Sasha had invited him to his bed and then dumped him off with the demons.
He.d use the tricks of manipulation he.d learned from Kris and Sasha both to get Sasha to do what he wanted.
Long ago, before Sasha broke from the Council, he had stayed in a corner chamber overlooking the forest.
Sasha sat before the hearth, as if deep in thought.
"Sasha," he said, flinging open the closet door.
Sasha turned to face him, covering his surprise with a smile that made Jade.s skin crawl.
He can.t protect you forever, Sasha.
Jade crossed to the window and looked out, formulating a plan to let the demons into the castle using Sasha.
"You.re troubled," Sasha said and rose.
Darkyn sent me, Sasha.
Sasha was quiet, and Jade faced him.
He expected Sasha to sense his betrayal, but Sasha.s gaze glowed for a different reason.
Sasha considered him long and hard.
"Speaking of my ways …" Sasha said, his gaze turning lustful.
If this was what it took to seal the deal with Sasha …
She felt bad for scaring him but knew the alternative—people like Kris or Sasha finding out—would doom her.
Kris wasn.t there, but Sasha was.
"That makes two of us," Sasha said and rose from his seat beside the fire.
Sasha snatched her neck with one hand, his movement too fast for her to defend herself against.
Sasha stepped back, a smile tugging up one side of his mouth.
Their brothers were already there, three of them sitting across the table from Sasha.
"I had hoped to bring everyone together to discuss the baggage Sasha has brought with him, if you.ll all be reasonable," Kris said.
Everyone.s gaze fell to Sasha.
"They.re still accepting prisoners, my dear Tamer," Sasha purred.
I turned it over to Kris, and now the Dark One wants me dead-dead, Sasha said.
"You.re no Andre, Kris," Sasha said.
"Andre lost that battle when Sasha defected and Rhyn went to Hell," Kiki stated.
Kiki and Tamer exchanged a look while Sasha seemed to be the only one pleased by the arrangement.
Kiki rose as well, his gaze going to Sasha.
You can have Sasha or you can have the Council.
Rhyn looked to Kris, then to Sasha, whose smile had faded.
No one but Sasha and me left in your Council, and I doubt I was ever really a part of it.
"My own brothers want me to break the Code to feed Sasha to the wolves," Kris muttered.
I learned that lesson when Sasha tossed me in a pit with full-blooded demons and were-things.
"Respect isn.t enough for someone in your position," Sasha agreed.
But, if you do as Sasha says and break the bond, I will keep her safe, I swear it, Kris said.
"We have to find Sasha," Kris said, ignoring her to push his way into the chamber.
You really think Sasha came here to throw himself on your mercy without some sort of back-up plan?
Sasha needs to fry, and the Council needs to remain intact, or all Immortals die.
The demons couldn.t get near Sasha so long as he had the coffin holding his father.
Sasha sat on top of the sarcophagus and looked around, smug in how safe he was sitting on top of the coffin.
Most had attacked the castle while Darkyn.s personal guard went after Sasha.
Sasha shouted to the forest.
"So that bitch Jade betrayed me," Sasha muttered.
He shifted in the brush, wishing he could.ve found a better way to draw out Kris and Sasha than by sacrificing everyone.
Sasha sneered in response.
Sasha was armed with two daggers and lowered himself into a fighting stance.
Jade had trained under Kris, the greatest of the Immortal warriors, and knew Sasha to be a lazy fighter.
"Wait, Jade," Sasha said, surprised.
You get no choice, Sasha!
Sasha.s guard fell quickly, and Jade hacked at the Ancient with all his fury until Sasha lay in a bloodied heap.
Sasha was far too chopped up to be alive.
Sasha had the vial.
He concentrated on which Sanctuary he wanted, the farthest from the castle, and lifted Sasha's body.
One, what do we want to do about Sasha?
"The consensus is that Sasha dug his own grave," Kiki said.
Two, what are we going to do when Kris chooses the Code and his oath over our unanimous vote to kill Sasha?
Even though Sasha is going to kill us all.
"We need to find Sasha," he said grimly.
With the castle flooded by demons, she didn.t know where she could take the vial to keep it from Sasha when he woke.
"I need to get this someplace safe before Sasha wakes up," she said.
If you throw Sasha out, can you keep him from entering?
I found it on Sasha.
You sure it was Sasha?
You say Sasha washed up somewhere?
It was our father.s crypt, until yesterday, when Sasha stole our father.s body.
I.m sworn to protect Toby, and I.ve done my duty in protecting Sasha, who is also my brother, according to the Code and the oaths I swore to my father and the Council!
If you had half a brain, you.d have helped Rhyn and killed Sasha.
"They went hunting for Sasha," Megan added.
Did you hear I found Sasha?
That explains her cheek, he thought darkly, not caring one bit about Sasha or the vial.
Sasha told me how to break our mating.
He would go to the Sanctuary and bring Sasha back to Kris.
"Master Kris," the woman said, "we have your brother, Sasha, here.
Demons attacked us after Sasha did something with our father.s body.
He thought of what the Council wanted him to do and of what Sasha had done.
I.ll send Immortals to watch over Sasha.
Limping, Jade returned to the site where he.d killed Sasha.
He stopped to lean against a tree to rest, unable to shake his own surprise at discovering Sasha wasn.t dead.
He would go to Kris and tell him just that—that Sasha had done this all, and he, Jade, had tried to help but been nearly killed by the demons!
The Council is working together for once, and Sasha tricked us into thinking he was returning to the Council, disappeared and washed up at the Caribbean Sanctuary.
"I saw Sasha take the body into the forest," Jade said carefully.
If Sasha was telling the truth, the chances of her being alive weren.t good.
It was the same one he.d use to kill Jade and Sasha.
It.s gotta be Sasha.
He didn.t want to agree to Rhyn.s terms, but the side of him willing to take in a creature like Sasha emerged again.
You here for Sasha?
How long do you think Sasha will be before he wakes up?
Sasha told me how to un-mate her, and I did it.
If they can.t figure out what Sasha did about the vial, they.ll need her and Ully.
Didn.t Sasha have one of Kris.s Immortals?
Sasha didn.t have to do what he did.
They.d do the same to him that they did to Sasha.
Jade and Sasha would soon be out of his way, and his gamble on the hidden honor of Rhyn had paid off.
Feeding Sasha information about the only way to break the bond—without telling him the breakage was only temporary— rendered the girl he.d been tracking for weeks vulnerable.
I want to kill Sasha first.
Sasha and Jade will soon be out of the way, leaving just us.
"Who do you think told Sasha how your mating could be undone?" he went on.
He attacked them to get to the Ancient Sasha.
If I get her help, she said everything would be okay, and everyone would understand Sasha killed the Immortals.
I want you to see the underworld fall and the Immortals destroyed as you die. Unless you'd like to take Sasha's place in my lab.
Sasha was a traitor.
I mean, how are you not a traitor like Sasha or a cold jerk like Kris? How did you spend so long in Hell and still try to follow parts of the Code?
Rhyn awoke from the island dreamscape in the shadow world. He rose, uncertain what happened but recalling his urgency. He crossed through the glowing black portal into the one place he'd hoped never to see again: Hell. Unwilling to get stuck in the cell where he'd spent many lifetimes, he chose to open the portal into the office of the Council's betrayer, Sasha. The office was as he remembered it, down to the black flames in the hearth.
Two days with demons … he'd seen what happened to her here, in Hell, over a similar period of time. Sasha was twisted, but Darkyn was merciless.
"There's a secret portal in the underworld, similar to the one here in Hell that allows Immortals to come in and out. It's how I could visit you when you were in Sasha's zoo," Gabe explained. "I couldn't take Katie through the shadow world place, because Death and Darkyn had assassins waiting for me to step foot in there. The secret portal is in Death's palace."
His second-in-command and executive officer, Sasha, was in Europe, along with everybody he'd been able to spare.
"Contact my second-in-command, Sasha, and tell him to discreetly send me a couple dozen Guardians," Jule ordered.
His name â€¦ Sasha.
As for you, half-breed, I agree on the condition that I get Sasha's soul.
He watched Rhyn's body contort beneath the spells of Rhyn's brother, Sasha.
The rest of the freaks collected by Sasha, Rhyn's half-brother who aligned himself with the Dark One, were quiet on the cell block.
Sasha had an affinity for collecting the worst of the worst -- creatures whose intentions toward humans and immortals alike were as far from the Immortal Code as could be.
Despite Rhyn's fury and occasional diversion from the Immortal Codes, he still believed in them, a weakness Sasha was trying to beat out of him since their eldest brother --the peacemaker and enforcer of the Council That Was Seven --sentenced them both to Hell.
The Council That Was Seven would survive without the three of them: Sasha, who'd sold out long ago; Kris, who needed to die; and him, whom Andre'd kill as soon as he killed Kris.
Like Erik said, she's some mutant Sasha made to infiltrate your operations.
He broke off their relationship when Kris took interest in him and soon after, Kris convinced Andre to banish Sasha to Hell.
Sasha himself, followed by two members of his guard of immortal badass creatures, delivered the new, bloodied tenant to the cell across the hall.
He didn't know if Sasha would recognize her for what she was, or if only the immortal meant to mate with her would see.
He was surprised she came back at all --Sasha had no mercy and rarely left his victims alive.
Normally, it was as far as they got before Sasha flew off the handle, had him tortured, and threw him back into his cell.
He and Sasha betrayed the Council and humanity long ago.
She went to him, shaking with the thought of being vulnerable to a creature like Sasha again.
Part of him felt triumphant to know he'd piss off Kris as well as Sasha.
Sasha was the first to align with the Dark One, and Rhynâ€¦
Of all the screwed-up menâ€¦beasts I've met, I'd trust Rhyn before Kris, even not knowing what Rhyn really is or if he really did try to annihilate mankind alongside Sasha.
Ully is experimenting with your blood to find a way to create a sort of antidote we can inject into our immortals to render them immune to the powers of Sasha's creatures.
I mean, Sasha's created some sort of funky monster that even an immortal can't kill.
"My lab in Hell didn.t have the ethical reservations you do in using Immortal or demon test subjects," Sasha said.
The demon closed the doorâ€”one of the Immortal comforts, for there were no doors in Hellâ€”and left him to wonder how many men and women Sasha had in the bed before him.
Kris never would.ve sent him away, Sasha wouldn.t have stumbled upon the immunity blood, and the demons wouldn.t be amassing an army to send to the human world.
I don.t give a shit about Sasha.
Sasha can help me break the bond so you don.t have to deal with that anymore.
Sasha disgusted him, but he couldn.t just kill him like he wanted to.
I think we are worse to each other than the Dark One is to his enemies, Kris said, white rage buried deep within him to keep Sasha from seeing it.
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.
He threw on a jacket and left, aware Sasha couldn.t leave the castle grounds without forfeiting his life and wouldn.t dare disrupt the Immortals for fear of Kris.s wrath.
And if Sasha steps outside of sacred grounds, we will take him.
Andre.s death and Rhyn.s reappearance changed everything, and Kris found himself considering alternatives he.d never have thought twice about before, like ordering Rhyn and Sasha killed despite his oath to protect his brothers and making an oath to Katie he had no intentions of keeping.
Sasha sat before the hearth as if deep in thought.
I know your appetite for women and men, Sasha.
"So, hand over Kris on a silver platter, and I.m free of those pesky demons," Sasha mused.
"I.m impressed, Jade," Sasha said.
"Speaking of my ways â€¦" Sasha said, his gaze turning lustful.
If this was what it took to seal the deal with Sasha â€¦
She felt bad for scaring him but knew the alternativeâ€”people like Kris or Sasha finding outâ€”would doom her.
Rhyn watched Ully inject one of the Immortals with some concoction derived from the immunity blood Sasha brought and lowered himself into a fighting stance.
I don.t know how far the Dark One will go to get Sasha or his vial of blood back, but I imagine our time is short.
I.m content to feed Sasha to the Dark One piece by piece if that means we keep the peace.
"Seems practically unanimous," Sasha said, unaffected.
I don.t need any of you, especially the headache Sasha is.
"I don.t condone the kind of brute violence you and Sasha do, Rhyn," he said.
Sasha hadn.t lost time in acting after the ill-fated Council meeting!
"Good thing Sasha washed up on shore at the Sanctuary or the demons would have this one," she said.
If Kris were willing to protect a twisted bastard like Sasha because of a stupid oath, he.d do the same for Katie.
He.d send someone to take Hannah to a different sanctuary, unwilling to risk his newfound mate to one as unpredictable as Sasha.
After all, Kris hadn.t died in the attack, and Jade could blame it all on Sasha.
He would go to Kris and tell him just thatâ€”that Sasha had done this all, and he, Jade, had tried to help but been nearly killed by the demons!
It was the dagger used to kill Rhyn.s mother, and the same one Andre would.ve used to kill Sasha for breaking his sacred oaths and trying to kill his brothers.
She stood in the middle of the chamber, quaking and praying he wasn.t the sadistic bastard Sasha was.
Feeding Sasha information about the only way to break the bondâ€”without telling him the breakage was only temporaryâ€” rendered the girl he.d been tracking for weeks vulnerable.
Satisfied he.d outsmarted everyone, he waited for Jade to hack apart the demon warrior guarding the portal and then disappear into the shadow world on his way to where Sasha was, the one piece of information Darkyn didn.t have.
Darkyn suspected twisted Immortals like Sasha were rare. One of the brothers on the Council That Was Seven, Sasha had been strategically placed to provide Darkyn more information than he'd hoped for. Sasha's only flaw had been his madness, which ultimately resulted in his death. Sasha had identified Ully, who was hand-selected by Andre. While Darkyn didn't know the full details of how Andre had gotten Death to release the once-dead human, he did know Andre and Death wouldn't have done something so important if Ully wasn't the brilliant scientist he was. It was unfortunate that Ully would be killed as soon as the three shapeshifting demons reached the underworld, but Darkyn didn't believe in loose ends.
He went straight to the basement, where the body of their father had been kept. The key to keeping the demon's away, it had been stolen by Sasha, the brother who betrayed the rest of them. Rhyn pushed off the hood as he entered what had been the most sacred chamber of the Immortals.
The room even smelled like Sasha. Rhyn cursed his dead half-brother silently and left, traveling the black stone halls of the fortress in Hell where he'd spent most of his life. He reached the door before the block of cells where Sasha had collected his favorite creatures in Hell to create his own twisted, private zoo. They'd referred to the sick Immortal as the zookeeper, a creature as deserving of a cell as any.
Shaking his head, Rhyn realized how sweaty his palms were as he stood before the door leading to the zoo. Sasha's mages had sat in the antechamber, repairing any damage the inmates did to their cells or preparing some magical torture that Sasha wanted.
Two days with demons â€¦ he'd seen what happened to her here, in Hell, over a similar period of time. Sasha was twisted, but Darkyn was merciless.

He is married to Michelle Obama, and has two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
Rather, many mini-fashionistas had their sights set on what Obama's daughters, 10-year-old Malia and seven-year-old Sasha, would be wearing as their father made history.
Many noted that thanks to the girls' stylish mother, Michelle, Malia and Sasha were morphing into clothing icons for the younger set.
The good news is that JCrew plans to feature "modified versions" of the coats worn by Malia and Sasha on Inauguration Day in its fall 2009 Crewcuts collection.
In addition to outfitting the First Daughters on Inauguration Day, JCrew also designed coats for Malia and Sasha to wear to the star-studded "We Are One" Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial.
Sasha's off-white coat featured brass buttons, while Malia's dove gray coat was accessorized with horn buttons.
The company reiterates that coats' designs have been modified, so that Malia and Sasha will not have to attend school with other girls wearing their exact coats.
Many parents and kids alike are taking their cues from clothes worn by Sasha and Malia Obama.
