Xoe never thought she’d be the type of girl to contemplate murder. Of course, she never thought she’d be dealing with werewolves on top of her own strange, budding powers. She’d also never considered the possibility of her long lost father being a demon. Everything comes crashing down at once when her best friend’s life is put in peril, and Xoe will do whatever it takes to save her.
Book three finds Laurel preparing her army of Hybrids for war. When she realizes their real adversary is not only the king and his guard, but the aliens he calls 'priests,' she begins a campaign to stop them from destroying Htrae. In the process she learns that there are more species on this planet than anyone realized and she plans to save them all even if it means she might die in the process.
