Survive at Midnight: Rituals of the Night Book Three
Death doesn’t always bring peace. With memories of her dead family and friends haunting her, Luna Ketz tries to untangle her life from the hold Chance has had on her over the past four years, but it’s harder than she thought. In death his secrets are revealed, plunging Luna into the mind of the man who ruined her life. Thoughts of her soon-to-be-born baby only bring to mind its monstrous father. Haunted by a new set of dreams, Luna fears her baby will grow up to be a carbon copy of him.
She battles to keep hold of her sanity as she loses a grip on the world around her. The dead begin to speak, and she can’t possibly ignore them. With Chance whispering evil deeds in her ear, she treads a trail she never thought she would venture and must rely on her worst enemy to help her conquer her biggest trial yet—herself.
Luna ran to the backyard, suddenly too overwhelmed with emotion to think clearly. The dam that had held in every bit of insanity and emotion vanished. She felt crazy. It was the only word she could think of to describe herself. She yowled out her frustrations to the sky, not caring who heard her. She was so mad at everything, but nothing more than herself. As soon as her outburst faded into silence, she collapsed to her knees in the snow. She didn’t feel the cold as her mind tried to desperately uncover herself from the burden that buried her.
“Are you okay?” Chance called worriedly.
She looked up through the thick veil of her raven-colored hair to see him standing there, his face creased in concern. She smiled when she caught sight of him, but it wasn’t out of happiness. The sight of him felt like an extra, un-needed pain to slice through the troubles already weighing her down.
“Finally ready to talk to me again?”
“I’m sorry if I hurt you by being short. I meant nothing against you, I think we both just needed some time.”
He visibly struggled for something to say.
As she stared at him, she realized the information in his note didn’t matter. Why did the thoughts that burdened him before his death matter to her? He was supposed to be her enemy, her worst nightmare. Yet, she took his pain for him and added it to the pile.
Pregnant with her arch rival’s baby, she’s put a hold on her future to search out the best options for her soon-to-be-born child, but no matter how much she tries, she can’t forget it’s father. She’s an academic, striving to do her best even with her back against the wall. Very logical and down-to-Earth. Also very easily annoyed.
