Token Huntress Book 4
BY KIA CARRINGTON-RUSSELL
The monster is coming undone, and following rules has never been her specialty. But if she gives in to its voice…she may never come back.
The vampire covens and Token Huntress, Esmore, now have one more enemy. The Human Government has stepped out from the shadows, creating a lethal, mutated species with the ability to turn humans into wolves. Their target for vengeance? Vampires.
Esmore and Chase are coming undone, her dark, impulsive nature threatening to drive a deep wedge between them as he wearily borders on the verge of becoming a saber. What was once their greatest strength is twisting into their greatest weakness. If she doesn’t gain control of the intoxicating power now, it might cost her all that she wishes to protect forever.
As new secrets are revealed and unlikely allies come forth, Esmore must decide who’s worth saving and what this wild gamble will cost.

Note from Kia: Token Huntress is a vampire romance dystopian and the main character, Esmore is a huntress. In a modern setting she would be very focused on nutritional value and I could rarely imagine her splashing out and consuming anything that didn’t benefit a fit mind and body. Perhaps her familiar, Chase would be able to convince her to try a piece of chocolate but I’d imagine she’d spit it right back out at its tarty taste. So, a salmon and vegetables meal would be a perfect dinner. Not too riddled in carbs but a clean protein source. My gosh, listen to how I sound while I’m writing this. She very much only wants the good health stuff and I doubt her culinary tastebuds would be very adventurous. Haha
