The Broken Halo Series Book 2
BY RHEANON NICOLE
Adelay knows it’s a race against time to put a stop to the powerful werewolf before her cursed blood ends up in the wrong hands, bringing her fairy tale to an end quicker than it began. As evil comes for her, her vampire soulmate, Davin, must rush to her side. But, will he get there in time? Will Adelay choose true love or use her power to save another, even if it means losing her soul mate forever?
The guy held his hand out for me to take. My hand took on a mind of its own by reaching out for his, and I walked onto the crowded dance floor with him, despite the voice of reason that hollered inside my head not to go anywhere with a stranger, even if it was just to dance. He wrapped one arm loosely around my waist, clutching my hand he still held firmly in the air, and turned us in small circles.
Somewhere deep inside me, something felt wrong about his presence, but he was so intriguing, I couldn’t seem to make myself walk away from him. The room fell silent around us. People and objects had no recognition, and any movement around me ended in trails of light passing by. My head was spinning slightly, telling me I had had enough to drink. His warm breath blew on my ear.
“This is the night of the damned. Some will live, many will die, and one will be reborn. Which category will you fall into tonight?”
I wriggled backwards, trying to focus on his exotic face. After a couple blinks, I was able to see him more clearly. “What did you just say?”
He didn’t repeat himself, instead he continued on. “Come with me now, and I will show you how it really is to live amongst the cursed. Your vampire can’t show you the things I can.”
Fear grasped at my throat, shoving down anything I tried to say back into the pit of my stomach. I put my hands against his chest, pushing his body away from mine.
“Your friends aren’t doing their jobs very well now, are they Adelay?”
The snaky tone in his voice was familiar. I backed away just as a body moved towards me followed by a trail of light, catching me as I tripped backwards.
“Whoa Adde, you don’t look so good. Come sit down.” It was Robbie’s voice. He guided me back to the couches, where I should have never left to begin with. Kneeling in front of me, he brushed a strand of hair out of my face soothingly. Gretchen immediately moved in next to us, unsure of what was going on.
“What happened to her Robbie?”
My vision was a little clearer than it had been a minute ago, but the room was still spinning around me. He ignored her.
“Where did he go?”
“Where did who go?”
“The man I was with on the dance floor!”
Robbie looked around confused. “There was nobody out there with you. You were dancing there by yourself, like you were in a world of your own. You almost landed on your ass before I caught you.”
“But I was talking to him! He was the one that made me go out there! You had to have seen him.”
