The king of darkness has found his angel. He would die for her, but will he live for her?
As ruler of post-apocalyptic Detroit, Griffin the lion-shifter governs over thousands of subjects. Children stare up at him in awe. Women flush over his good looks. Men leap to obey his command. But for all those who kneel in his shadow, Griffin refuses to trust a single soul. Life has taught him that no heart is free of corruption, especially his own.
Cherished by her parents and friends, young Iliana has been cloaked in love from her earliest days. But as she blooms into womanhood, the beasts of their city begin to circle, threatening the safety of those she cares for most. When it becomes clear that Iliana’s only hope for survival is under the king’s protection, she’s forced to leave everything she knows and trust in his goodwill.
But with evil forces at work Griffin must learn to open his heart and follow his instincts, or risk making a fatal mistake.
