    Summary

    Death was not new to John. He understood death as well as any other creature would.
    But the cruelty inflicted upon those poor boys the moments before their death?
    No wolf, vampire, mage or human alone could understand it.
    Maybe their little group of misfits could.

    Summary

    John Moore woke with a start. Sweat trickling slowly down his forehead as his eyes darted around the room looking for an unknown attacker. This is how he’d awoken every night since the killer had been caught. He knew he was safe, the monster had been shot dead right before his eyes, but still, the man haunted his mind. John shook his head as if to dislodge the dream still racing through his mind and let his thoughts wander to the other man who haunted him.

    Summary

    The notion crossed John’s mind that he could ask anything of Laszlo in that moment and the man would obey. Curiosity almost compelled him to try, but that wasn’t what Laszlo needed, and John thought that he was, perhaps, beginning to understand; Laszlo was relinquishing control to allow his own mind to fall silent.

    Summary

    Love wasn’t something John was unfamiliar with. He and love, well. . . they were actually good acquainted, to say the least—and John had experienced and seen it enough throughout the years to be able to recognize it in one’s behavior.

    His son Joseph was no exception.
