Dark Child (The Awakening): Episode 5

Read excerpt

Because there was no mistaking the sound that was drawing ever closer. The excited baying, the mournful howls of wild creatures as they grouped and closed in for the kill.
Cold dread swept through her, chilling her to the bone. The pack was here.

The future seems hopeless, and Kat’s life is in the balance. Is it possible that she holds the key to their survival? Because if she can’t find a way to unlock the knowledge within herself, it won’t just be her life that’s forfeit, but also the lives of the unalil, and of their captive sister . . .
