I was born to kill. Literally. My birthright is to destroy the world for the darkest forces that crawled out of the ooze that was used to create the universe. Born and raised as a human, I had no idea who or what I really was. Not until the night my mother was brutally murdered.
I blame my best friend Acheron because I know he could still bring my mother back. As a destroyer, I don’t have that power. He does. But mostly, I blame myself for what happened. I kept secrets from my mother I never should have, and most of all, I know I had no reason to leave her alone and unprotected. At the end of the day, it’s all my fault. Knowing that doesn’t stop the pain, nor does it help me fight the darkness inside me that is trying to take me over. Every day I live is one more step closer to a destiny I don’t want. A destiny I can’t avoid.
But it doesn’t stop me from trying. I can’t give in. Not this time.
If I do…
