He tilted his head. I don’t know, Josie. They need to know what they’re going to face.
Fear filled the Sentinel’s eyes as he reached my side, grabbing my hand. The kind of fear that shot a cold shiver down my spine. Not that way. You do not want to go that way!The sound of what reminded me of a wounded animal tore through the air. Several wounded animals. High-pitched and shrill.
Terrified screams mingled with something darker, something inhuman. A screech echoed through the air, drowning out the screams.Masked pures began dropping to their knees, clutching at their heads as they tried to cover their ears.Off in the distance, I thought I saw something dark against the gray skies. Large…birds? There were three of them, their wings gliding—
Holy shit, I stumbled back a step. Those aren’t birds, are they?No. The Sentinel tugged on my hand. The furies have been unleashed, and they are pissed!
Colin’s mouth dropped open. The furies?

I couldn’t feel my feet any longer. That was probably bad, but I wasn’t thinking about that anymore anyway. There was a sharp cry, and a body landed next to mine, the head twisted at an unnatural angle. It was her—the female fae.

The tone of his voice told me I should be worried, but I couldn’t find it in me to dredge up those emotions.A hand cradled the back of my head. Sweetness, look at me. Please. He lifted me, and I was weightless. Floating. Dammit, open your eyes and look at me.
