Summary from Goodreads: Open your eyes to darkness. What do you see? Does the darkness frighten you? Now imagine the darkness being the cargo hold of a slave ship. Your city has fallen. Your family is most likely dead. You don’t know anyone around you, and some of them aren’t even human. Giving up would be so easy to do, but not for Arowyn Mason. Not after being raised in a military family with seven brothers. Every great story should begin with a plan. Aro’s was to escape and to survive.

Escape comes, but at a price. As they reach the shore, Aro and the other survivors learn that freedom doesn’t mean safety. The slavers want their property back and will do anything to get it. The party uses every ounce of their brute strength, a hearty helping of cunning, and even ancient magics to keep themselves alive. Sickness, danger, and even love surprise them at every turn. Dealing with danger becomes their way of life, but none of them ever considered that nothing can be quite as dangerous as a prophecy. Running turns into another race altogether as her world falls to pieces again and again.

EXCERPT
She looked up in a daze at Prince, simply amazed to find him
suddenly there. She turned her head as a scream cut through his calming words.
She gaped in horror. Bodies lay broken everywhere. Pieces
of bodies. Blood and gore covered them, the ground, and the trees. Kei stood a short distance from her, tearing a man to pieces.
But it wasn’t really him, just a monster who reminded her of him. He didn’t have teeth like a beast, or feral glowing red eyes, or such impossibly long claws. Her sweet Kei wouldn’t cause such destruction, wouldn’t be covered in so much blood.
“Aro. We have to go. And quietly. Do not call out to him.
It isn’t safe.”
She looked up at Prince, her eyes wide.
“He’s gone into the fury. He might hurt us. So quiet. Under
stand?”
She nodded even as more tears came to her eyes and she
looked back at Kei. It was Kei? Her Kei?
The monster turned. His glowing red eyes met hers and a growl rumbled from him as he took a step toward them.
Prince rose swiftly and set her down, pushing her behind him. “Do not come closer.”
Kei paused, cocking his head to the side slightly as if struggling to understand.
She peeked around Prince, her hands on the small of his back, afraid to move. Kei looked at her and she saw his sharp canines and the blood on his face. Trembling she whimpered, hiding more behind Prince.
“Go,” Prince demanded. “She is safe now.”
Kei continued to hesitate, swaying slightly as he watched her.
“You are frightening her. You need to go.”
With a mournful howl Kei spun and disappeared into the trees.
