He shivered at the breeze. Even so, he felt hot, anxious even. He remembered the man’s touch, when he slipped his fingers underneath his clothes, and how comforting it was, for the man to warm him up despite the upcoming storm. For Luke to simply relish in someone else’s touch, though the world he trapped himself in was cold to the touch. It was, at the moment, the first time he felt human. In a really, really long while.
However, just before he drifted off, he felt something envelop him in the dark. It was familiar, and though he heard a voice, Luke couldn’t place where. Something light touched his forehead, but just as he was about to see who it was, he fell asleep.
The next morning, that presence was gone. Luke was left staring at the empty, a quiet heartbreak resting within his chest. A tear slip out from his eyes, but nevertheless, he stood. No matter what, he had to keep going.
It is early August of 2017. Merc Pritchett and her family have just made their big move to Prince Rupert, a small port city in Canada. It was a fresh start. It was a chance to establish themselves as an ordinary, functional, and most importantly, HUMAN, suburban family.
Merc is a determined twenty-one-year-old, with an admittedly odd name, who is not going to let her true nature dictate how she should live her life. Being the daughter of Death – and the first human/reaper hybrid – is not an easy existence. It is a legacy she didn’t ask for.
Paul Ward is her next-door neighbor. His very presence in her life starts to complicate things. Merc wants to keep her distance, but somehow fate seems to want to bring these two closer together. A disaster occurs, and this man learns the terrifying secret that the Pritchetts keep. There is no turning back and Merc is forced to let him in.
She doesn’t even want to contemplate who is the threat behind the scenes that is threatening the balance she is working so hard to keep.
