In a dangerous world riddled with ambition and intrigue, Tasia must tread a treacherous path where nothing is safe – her past, her secrets or her heart …
Tasia is no longer a nondescript and friendless Wizard on the fringes of San Francisco’s Chosen community. Publicly entwined with a powerful Shifter Pack, she must navigate the minefield of Pack politics and Chosen intrigue, while guarding her secrets from the Magicks who hunt her.
The stakes have never been higher as old fault lines, long-buried secrets, Wizard dysfunction, and Lady Bethesda’s ambitions draw the Chosen ever closer to a civil war. While Tasia grapples to avoid the pitfalls and confront her demons, it is an unlikely nemesis who forces her to face her moment of truth. Tasia finds herself at the crossroads – at stake are her carefully constructed house of cards and her tangled relationship with the man who holds her enemies at bay. Will Tasia risk opening Pandora’s Box or will she walk away to disappear into the shadows again?
Author’s Note : The Rainmaker continues the story from The Prophecy. The books are not standalone and are intended to be read in order.
Set in the fantastical and intrigue-riddled world of the Chosen, this is an urban fantasy tale with an unfolding mystery, many twists and turns, action, adventure and a dash of romance.
The story continues with Book 3 – The Siren
Companionable silence reigned in the car. The side streets were quiet, as the Alpha had guessed. Tasia relaxed to muse on what he had said.
“What the hell” he muttered under his breath.
Tasia peered ahead to see the silhouette of a garbage truck loom before them. It blocked the intersection. On the narrow street, it would be hard to go around it.
“Hold on.” He braked to a stop a few yards from the truck. Unlike the main road, the side streets, mostly residential, were deserted. It was why he had picked this route.
“Alright?” he asked Tasia, his eyes on the truck blocking their path.
Something didn’t add up here, Raoul realized almost immediately. His Shifter senses told him that there were men in the truck. Yet, they made no move to allow him passage through or to explain why the truck blocked the intersection. As the premonition of danger kicked into gear, Tasia turned to him urgently.
“There are Chosen in the truck” she whispered, her own radar tingling uncontrollably.
He reached for the gear shift. “How many?”
“Four. No, five.”
“Get down and stay down” he directed calmly. If this was an ambush and bullets started flying, they’d do no damage to a Shifter. She, notwithstanding her magic, was frailer.
Unclipping her seat belt, Tasia slid down her seat with some difficulty, as he revved the engine.
“They’re wiz …”
Her words were drowned out by the hum of a pinging sound, followed by the soft thud of the Alpha’s shoulder slamming back into his seat.
He cursed softly. Tasia, doubled down awkwardly, attempted to glance at him.
“Keep your head down” he said sharply. “They’re shooting at us.”
Tasia moved hastily to tuck herself even more snugly in the space between the dashboard and her seat. It was a tight fit even for a petite body like hers.
“Shooting at us” she repeated. There was alarm in her voice.
She felt the car move violently.
“Bullets won’t injure me” he said brusquely, just as a hail of pings rent the air.
Bullets tore into him in quick succession, tearing through the windshield and the window where Tasia crouched on the floor. The deluge of bullets pinned him to his seat.
“Fuck” he swore, under his breath. Should have just backed away, he admonished himself.
Now, they were stuck, with the witchling exposed.
Raoul abandoned the attempt to flee, fighting the weight of bullets pinning him to his seat.
Throwing off his seat belt, he flung himself over Tasia, trying to shield her from the barrage being shot into the car. Not a moment too soon, as the window on the passenger side shattered with a loud crack and a hail of shards rained down on them. Using his inhuman strength to crush down the gear box, he curled himself over her where she crouched to protect her from the shower of glass and bullets.
“Hold on” he muttered. “I’ll get us out.”
Raoul recognized the mess they were in. He couldn’t fight the men, not while they kept shooting at Tasia. Without her to protect, he’d have a free hand. Instead, all he could hope for was that they’d run out of bullets or that someone in one of the houses would note the gunfight, despite the silencers, and call the cops.
Terrified as she was, Tasia felt a sense of calmness pervade her, even as bullets rained around them. The Alpha was one of the most resourceful and powerful Chosen she knew, and she was not exactly without power, should it come to it.
