My phone went off with a new notification. Father was the only being who knew my number, so it meant I had a new assignment. Another soul to take. Usually I got a couple nights off in between each one to enjoy my success, or find my own souls, but not this time. It must be an important assignment.
I left the three humans to find pleasure with each other, gathered my clothes then left the room to find a shadow in the penthouse to use for travel.
Back in my two-story log cabin on the edge of the human realm, I flopped on my couch and researched the next soul I was assigned to take. Oddly, I couldn’t find any information about him. He had no social media accounts, and there was no mention of him anywhere on the web. The message from Father said this mission would be my toughest so far, but I rolled my eyes. There were so many humans who would sell their first-born child for a better life. Selling their souls meant absolutely nothing to those humans. I was sure this next assignment would be no different from all of my previous ones.
I sat down and closed my eyes. If I concentrated enough, I could get a glimpse of my next soul to take. And once I made contact, I’d be able to get into his mind. All the more reason I would not fail this mission. Once I figured out my target’s desires, I couldn’t lose.
The vision was blurry at first, but when it cleared, I was back in Saramto. Though definitely not the part of town I’d just visited. The faces of everyone in the neighborhood looked bleak. Hopeless. I could offer them all so much. It was the territory my brother liked to claim his souls. And, looking at the desperation, I wondered why his claim count wasn’t so much higher than mine.
I focused in more, trying to locate my target. And when I did, I gasped. He was a tall young man, but far too thin, with hollowed cheeks and sunken eyes. I wasn’t sure how he was still alive. He looked so frail as he spooned soup into an older woman’s mouth. She didn’t appear nearly as sickly as him even though the older woman seemed to be confined to her bed for some reason. What was wrong with this young man? And why was he my target? He looked like he was on the brink of death already. I wondered why his soul was so important. Why not let him finally find some happiness when he passed?
I opened my eyes, confused. I needed answers, and the only way I would get them would be to go find this guy myself. Hopefully while he was still alive so I could up my soul count once again.
About the Book:
Once upon a time there was a demon who was the best at convincing people to sell their souls. That was me. Is me. And now I have a new assignment, one Father told me would be difficult. I didn’t know what “difficult” meant until I met the young man, someone who has barely anything. Collecting his soul should be easy, right? There are so many things I can give him. Except, he doesn’t believe he deserves a better life. I have to find something he desires before the assignment is given to my brother. Because Crow uses the most villainous means to obtain souls. Lines I don’t cross. And I don’t want to see Toby hurt. There has to be another way.
I’m not like them. I can’t shift into a predator to defend myself, or even into a small rodent to run and hide. The wolf shifters know that every time they rough me up and steal my food. I always wish for a guardian angel to protect me from them. Then one day Jet appears, looking nothing like the angel I’d imagined. But I don’t know if I should trust him. He makes me feel things no other alpha ever has. Dangerous things. Not good when I have to stay focused on my grandmother. I don’t know how much longer I’ll have her around.
Paperback: coming soon
