Syphons: A Novel
by D. A. Smith on 2019-05-03
Solstice Bellatrix, an ordinary, curvaceous, twenty-something was already killed once.
She’s not cool with almost being killed again.
A chance encounter at a nightclub with a violent being covered in multiple appendages leads her into the home of a handsome stranger.
When she awakens, she’s greeted by Alexander “AJ” Ward. Witty, charming, and, dangerous with a set of golden eyes that makes her melt. She fears her past is about to return at full speed with this man in her life.
Alexander Ward sees or rather “tastes” through Solstice’s false sense of humanity, and easily calls her out on it. AJ knows more about the enemy who wants her dead than he admits, but he’s willing to help her, at a cost.
The attraction between Solstice and AJ is otherworldly and their new bond comes with a special set of super abilities.
Solstice is going to need more than a couple of self-defense classes and a good pair of running shoes to make it through the week. She must trust AJ to help protect her and her friends from a deranged Queen and her hoard of brainless Drones.
Thankfully, AJ has a team of non-humans, a couple of top secret agents, and of course his own gifts to protect his Entangled One.
Maybe, Solstice doesn’t have to die again!?
