'So gripping you'll want to read late into the night; so terrifying you shouldn't' Simon Mayo
When Mallory Grace is attacked by two intruders, she flees her home leaving one man dead and the other with a sword running through his body, clinging to his life. But there are still others following her.
Obadiah Macintosh is working a night shift at the animal sanctuary on the Cornish cliffs, when his dogs are haunted by a presence Obadiah cannot see. He does not know who is coming for him but he knows it leads him back to the girl he met weeks ago. And there is only enough time for him to run.
A dark force is approaching. And Mallory and Obadiah must protect their unborn child, a child with a gift no other human can wield.
But one assassin has an agenda of her own, and she may live to be the greatest evil of all.
