“They say that right before you die your whole life flashes before your eyes. What a load of crap! The second I felt the “click” beneath my boot all I saw was his face. I had left him standing mere feet behind me, and if I moved a millimeter more, I would kill us both. If you asked me what you see before you die, I’d be the first to tell you that it’s not the life you’ve lived that replays in your mind’s eye, but the one you haven’t.”
For five long years Jaylee Penn Sayer has had recurring dreams of the day a landmine in Kuwait almost took her life, and of the man who saved her in a way she would never be able to accurately explain. For a half decade she dreamed of the way he and their teammates had disappeared into thin air, and why the remaining witnesses to the event seem to have no recollection of it at all.
One tragic night, as Jaylee watched her best friend’s life slipping away, the man who saved her, Marcus Cain, returns the way he left…suddenly, inexplicably, and carrying the pieces to Jaylee’s heart. Immediately Jaylee’s reality is turned upside down by a series of nightmarish attempts on her life, and Marcus is forced to reveal who, and what, he really is, the truth about her destiny, and why she can never have the thing she wants most. Him.
As an ancient prophecy unfolds, worlds begin colliding around her, and Jaylee starts to discover gifts she never knew she had, gifts that mark her as an enemy to a dangerous foe, that free her from a curse, and that force her to send Marcus away. Possibly forever.
