Prologue

The phantom burning in her wrists had long since faded to an aching numbness, but the rest of her was an inferno.  She felt the movement within her soul, a visceral invasion of her deepest being. Reaching to the core of her, to the seat of her life, it would not be dulled by even their most careful attentions.

'It hurts in a way for which none can ever prepare you. You might think then that all you want is to die, but in an hour – maybe less – you know... and the next day defies imagination.'

The warning hissed through her. Splayed out in sleep, her arms a cross beneath the pillows, she twisted, her mouth opening, soundlessly at first. Then she drew breath and her cry split the over-ripe night, spilling out fear toward the remnants of a once proud race – the top of the food chain, become haunted prey.

It was not for food that they were hunted.

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story.

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
