When mistakes are made that cause Micah to be kidnapped, will Sashan find the strength to rescue his mate, discover what the City plans next for the Katrian people, and learn who is the monstrous traitor behind all their troubles? Most importantly, will a seemingly unworthy beast finally find the redemption he seeks in the arms of his loving mate?
