On the day Taryn Smith turns eighteen, her life changes—and not just because she can now legally vote. A black-eyed man with a chilly aura accosts her, and a stilted breath later, she's abducted by a man who claims he’s a Manang; a half-man, half-angel being who lives in a world called Urian. Side note: he may or may not be insane.
Sent to a mansion in the middle of a grassy field surrounded by forest, and partnered with a black-haired, blue-eyed man with a surly nature who makes her heart spin, Taryn trains. For what, she doesn’t know. She's told she's someone special; a Charmed, and the key to winning in a battle of worlds about to collide. Only problem is, she can be a weapon of good, or a weapon of bad.
“Taryn. Get up.”
I looked in the direction of the door. “Go away.”
The door swung open, and Luke marched for the bed. Even in the gray cast morning I could see his lips pressed together, and that his eyes were promising all kinds of retribution. It was a small consolation that he smelled sweet, with a dash of bitter. From what I’d encountered so far, that basically summed up Luke. Or maybe it was bitter, with a dash of sweet.
I flipped thick hair off my face and glared back. “What do you want?”
“What did I tell you yesterday?”
“I don’t know and I don’t care.” It was too early for this. “I’m going back to bed. Leave.”
I flopped to my side and pulled the thick blanket up to my chin, closing my eyes with a contented smile on my lips. The blanket was immediately torn from me, along with all the warmth it provided. “Hey!”
“Training for you starts now.”
“It’s in the middle of the night,” I cried, grabbing for the blanket.
Luke kept it out of my reach by putting a hand to my forehead. “It’s six in the morning. It’s time to get up. I’ll be back in five minutes. If you’re not ready and—” He leaned forward until our faces were inches apart. “—positively cheerful, you won’t like what I do next.”
“Oh, yeah?” I taunted as he strode from the room. “We’ll see about that, you equally cheerful person!”
Luke backtracked and I scrambled from the bed, suddenly awake and ready for some training. I even gave him a smart salute. I caught his smirk before he disappeared.
