Passionate and headstrong, half-demon Raven is nearly executed on the orders of her fundamentalist stepfather. She escapes from the burning stake using the gifts of her otherworldly heritage and the help of a mortal stranger named Blade. Now she’s set on revenge, and only quiet, intense Blade stands in her way.
A retired assassin weary of the weight of his past, Blade has crossed the desert to seek out a new life. His journey is interrupted when his conscience demands he help Raven find an old friend who can help her. Saving her from her need for revenge and delivering her into the hands of loved ones means he’s one step closer to redemption.
But as Blade’s sense of duty becomes something more and threats, both mortal and immortal, stalk the woman he can’t abandon, he could very well fall back into the life he’s trying so hard to escape.

The young Godseeker assassin returned and slid onto a stool at the bar. He had all the arrogance associated with youth and his chosen profession. Blade remembered the days when he’d had the same.
He looked up from searching under the counter for an unopened bottle of rye and met the boy’s eyes.
“I know who you are,” the boy said.
Another glass shattered on the floor. Blade’s hand hung in the air for a split second, then he grabbed a bottle by its neck and set it on the bar’s counter.
“Who I am is a fool.” He leaned on the bar and gave the boy his most chilling stare. “I thought I could change the world. I thought I could cross the desert alone because I was good with a knife. Demons don’t care about knives. They care even less about mortal men. Would you like me to tell you how it feels to be eaten alive?” He straightened and nodded to the other Godseekers. “Then you can share the information with your friends, who are so intent on going to war against them.”
“Perhaps you could also tell me how it feels to be a coward,” the boy replied with ill-concealed disappointment.
Not that long ago, Blade would have killed anyone who dared speak to him in such a manner. Now, he accepted that the boy was right. Self-awareness took much of the insult from the words. “It feels like being alive.”
