- Expected 25 Aug 2020
On the night I met Damian Di Santo he warned me that monsters don’t hide in the dark. That instead they stand in the light and look you straight in the eye so you can see them. See the evil in their eyes.
I knew then that he was one of those monsters.
That was the night the countdown began.
Marked by dead roses and sharp thorns, eight years passed each bringing me closer to becoming his. Until the eve of my eighteenth birthday when he returned to claim me.
To begin our unholy union.
Circumstance put Cristina on my path.
Fate bound her to me.
Cristina and I share a common past. A single night that changed the course of our lives.
She asked me if I was a monster on the night I first met her.
But the beast which mercilessly hunts its prey fiercely protects what’s his.
The countdown that began eight years ago is ended. Her time is up.
On the stroke of midnight, she’s mine.
