Seriana Aphenithea, Princess of the Light Loxy Realm has been banned. Why? She can’t remember. She must find her way, and her memories, if she is ever to return home. Waking with no memory of whom or where she is, Seriana runs for her life when two beings chase her through the forest. Glowing eyes stares out at her through the darkness. Sending a mental call for help and in response, two wolves emerge.
While protecting her from the hunters who intend to do her harm, one of the wolves becomes fatally injured. Acting on instinct, Seriana merges her energies with his, saving his life. Connecting her mentally to the human the wolf turned in to. Adam and Blake are werewolves. Surprisingly this does to scare her. In fact, it triggers the beginning of her memories. She has been to the earth realm before.
With her no longer allowed to enter her own realm, Seriana must find a way to safeguard her family in the Light Realm and on earth. She has to protect those around her by ensuring no one finds out her VEILED SECRETS.
You are banned from this realm,” the woman’s voice whispered sadly a moment before a big flash of light blinded her and then everything went black.
Lying on the ground she felt heavy, as if from a pressure of someone sitting on her chest, weighing her down. Struggling to suck in a deep breath, it felt strange. This was not her natural form, nor was it her world. But she had no idea where, or for that matter who, she was. Her memory was totally gone except for those whispered words still echoing through her mind.
Something had awakened her and there it was again, cold and shiny poking hard against her side. Stirring on the cold ground, her head whipped around. Two forms moved closer. Blinking rapidly to clear the haze from her vision, the black shapes began to show in a vivid patchwork of colors.
Whoever or whatever they were, one of the forms jabbed at her again. The sounds they made were strange, yet familiar. When she batted the object away, it laughed and continued to harass her. The auras around the beings were mixed with darker colors and the bright shades of red spiraling throughout were alarming. He reached for her.
Scrambling to her feet, she tried to move away, but was not quick enough. A hand grabbed hold of her arm. Pulling her roughly to him, his face lowered towards hers, he sneered, “What have we here?”
She’d heard the language before, human. She tried to turn her face away to avoid the horrible stench of the man’s breath when he kept talking.
His hand grabbed hold of her jaw and held her still. His grizzled face smiling, he looked down at her. His other hand began to slide slowly down her back.
Before he could go any further than her shoulder blade, she shoved with all her strength and sent the man stumbling, yelling loudly as he fell to the ground.
The other man shouted and lunged at her with a menacing look on his face.
Releasing a terrified scream, she took off running. The darkness was disorienting, but she ran anyway, tripping over brush and tree roots. Then suddenly her eyes began to adjust and she could see plainly. Tiny bits of memories seeped through her mind of being in this place before. The tall, thick pine trees meant she was in the forest of the human realm, being chased by two hunters. The shiny thing was their rifle and they were hunting her! Sucking in a frantic breath, she heard them crashing through the brush behind her.
Seriana skidded to a halt when a dark shape stepped in front of her. His eyes gleamed red for just a moment and she felt her heart accelerate. She instantly recognized his scent as a vampire. Frightened, she started backing up and bumped into Adam and Blake who had caught up to her.
Adam, seeing the terrified look on her face wrapped his arm around her shoulder, pulling her back to him in a protective hug. His eyes darted to the man staring down at Seriana.
His facial features were strong; his jaw was squared and he had high cheekbones, which emphasized his somewhat hollowed out cheeks. He was not as tall as Blake or Adam, not quite as muscular either, but his presence was commanding. He stared at her with his dark eyes. His tongue quickly darted out, slipping across his lips, leaving a moist trail.
Thankfully Blake stepped in front of her, blocking the vampire from her view. She urgently looked up at Adam. “I need to get out of here now!”
Adam nodded, not taking his eyes off the man Blake confronted.
“Mind moving out of the way to let us through?”
The vampire stared at Blake for a long moment with his eyes narrowed as if he contemplated responding. With barely a shake of his head he moved back slightly.
Seriana’s mind sought Darius’. Even though she knew he was thousands of miles away she should be able to connect with him. How many vampires are in the earth realm?
Too many to count, the reason I warned you to be careful. Have your two wolves bring you outside.
Seriana stormed through the hotel room. “You are not leaving me here.”
His face was clouded with frustration. “Stubborn.”
Damn right she was being stubborn. She was not going to allow him to go out into the forest and face Christopher and possibly other vampires alone.
“I won’t put you in danger!” His voice rose slightly in his anger.
Folding her arms across her chest, she glared up at him. Her chin jutted out in determination. Then one corner of her lip lifted into a slight grin, she nodded and dropped her hands to her sides. “Okay fine, leave me here.” She plopped down on the bed and grabbed the remote.
Darius stilled, his own eyes narrowing at the sudden change in her attitude. He knew that never bode well. He studied her suspiciously. “Tell me you are not going to follow me.”
Seriana didn’t look at him. “Okay, I won’t.” Her eyes remained glued to the TV. “See you later.”
He stood with his hands on his hips shaking his head. “You don’t give up that easy.” He stepped over in front of the television, blocking her view.
Seriana lifted her eyes to him and smiled, making sure her mind was completely blocked to him. “You are the strategist for the Guard. You know what you are doing. So go do it and move out of the way, I’m trying to watch television.”
Darius stood staring at her for moment longer. “Keep the dagger with you and do not remove the necklace I gave you.” He turned, yanked the door open and stalked out, closing it with a thud.
Seriana remained where she was, her fingers tracing the garishly large silver cross around her neck on a thick silver necklace. Waiting for him to barge back in, she hid her grin when the door was shoved open.
Darius stood there shaking his head. “You don’t give up that easy.”
Releasing a sigh, she dropped the remote beside her where it bounced once on the fluffy comforter, and lifted her eyes to his. “I simply agree that you know what you are doing. I do not want to get in your way.”
He shook his head. “What are you up to?”
Glancing at the clock with an innocent look on her face, she turned back to him. “You are going to be late.”
With a huff, he turned and stormed out again.
This time, she waited a moment then jumped off the bed and opened the door a crack, ducking back inside when he turned at the end of the hallway and looked back towards their room. When she heard him turn to go, she followed.
It must be awful, waking up in a strange land, not knowing who you are or where you are. Not to mention having NO idea how or why you are there in the first place. That is what happens to Princess Seriana.
