Tessa—part witch, part werewolf, raised human and now the unofficial leader of a newly minted supernatural alliance—thinks nothing of her brother, Axel, texting her and Dastien to meet up. The location pin is in a weird spot, but maybe he found a magical anomaly? But when Tessa steps into the darkened warehouse, she doesn’t expect to see her brother laying in a pool of his own blood, smell the sulfuric scent of black magic, or feel the pain of her mate being shot full of silver.
Tessa has seconds to make a choice, but there’s only one thing she can do to save the two most important men in her life—sacrifice herself.
The last thing Dastien hears from Tessa is her plea—help Axel. Then their bond goes silent. He can’t hear her. He can’t feel her. And there’s no sign of the attackers who took her.
Dastien does everything he can to save Axel before calling his friends in a panic. It takes all of them to find Tessa, but when Dastien’s finally reunited with her, there’s no sign of recognition in her eyes.
No magic in her touch.
No wolf beneath the surface.
Everything that made Tessa who she was…has been erased.

Excerpt
I didn’t remember walking into the infirmary or lying on one of the beds, but I blinked, and there I was.
The lights were too bright. The room was too hot. Too small. Too confining.
Dr. Gonzales was telling me something—but I couldn’t make out the words—instead, there were plinks of metal against metal. I heard them. They seemed to resonate in my soul.
I turned my head to see her set down a pair of tweezers onto the tray, next to three bloody bullets.
Tessa was gone.
Someone had shot me three times, and they took Tessa.
They stole my Tessa.
I remembered turning wolf and ripping up the room while Dr. Gonzales told me to calm down. She screamed down the hallway for someone to bring a tranq, yelled at me to stop, but it felt like I was outside my body. Like this wasn’t really happening. Like it was a dream, and if I fought hard enough, I would wake up.
But I didn’t wake up.
There was a chick-click, and I knew what that meant. A gun was being loaded.
A gun was being loaded for me.
That got me moving.
I jumped through the tiny window, and as I was falling, I remembered that Tessa had done the same thing once.
And that made me feel closer to her.
But then I hit the ground, and there was yelling, and I knew I had to go. I knew I had to run.
I remembered running through the woods.
I remembered blood in my mouth.
I remembered killing anything in my path. It was still night, so there were demons here, and I needed something to kill. They were a good thing to kill. They were something to take my anger and helplessness away.
But it didn’t help. Not really. Not when I needed my mate.
But no matter how far I ran, how long I looked, I couldn’t find her.
Tessa was gone.
Someone took Tessa.
Someone stole my mate.
