The Beasts Unveiled (Twisted Bloodlines #5) by Linda Jackson


"It’s a thrilling, scary ride through the life of Megan, but it’s complicated, and dark, and hauntingly amazing. I have never been more shocked by a story’s plots, and bad guys, and twists, and secrets. Trust me, it’s full of things that are awe-inspiring." - Goodreads, Maghon about book #1


Description:

Published: March 16th, 2016

Under attack from all angles, Sabrina’s mission is simple: retrieve the child and stop Deacon’s rise to power. But in their world, nothing is ever that easy.

Deacon has reined in every available source of power to ensure his success in the war against the panthers; all except one. Amelia, born to Peter and Beth, is said to hold the power of a long forgotten bloodline, and Deacon will stop at nothing to get her.

Sabrina has been steadily turning friends into enemies with her opinionated views and is tired of living life on the sidelines. Deciding it’s time to leave behind this chapter of her life, she uncovers a devastating betrayal that sends her straight into the lion’s den. Soon, the knife twists even deeper revealing that Deacon is not the only master of deceit. A puppeteer has been pulling their strings from the beginning, creating a destiny that was never intended and replacing it with another, leaving their souls forever incomplete.

Fully aware that their lives have been tampered with, accusations fly and loyalties divide making them vulnerable against the enemy. Things spiral out of control and one unavoidable situation leaves blame and guilt weighing heavily on Sabrina’s mind. Despite being shunned by the people she called family, she is determined to help them win against Deacon.

In a moment of stupidity that could have ended her life, the future is revealed in two paths for her. Will she choose the right path and go the distance, or will she perish under her uncertainty, leaving Deacon as the successor?

EXCERPT

Everywhere I turn he seems to be there. Trey gives a light pat on my shoulder and rises, leaving me alone once again. I sit there for ages staring at the television screen, but not taking anything in. The need to flee this place is rising. I feel as though I’ve overstayed my welcome and I know for sure a few of the residents would agree with me. I rise and decide to return to my room. I pass Beth along the way and see that she is cradling Amelia. I find it odd that she seems to favour that twin. I never see Peter with her, although I don’t even recall having seen Beth without her. Is that the twin Deacon is after? I guess that would explain her reluctance to let the child out of her sight. Why do I even care? I’ve had enough of trying to help these people. All it gets me is a whole heap of trouble. My decision is made. I leave tonight. Checking my watch, I see that I have an hour before it’s my turn to patrol. Once nightfall comes, I’m out of here.
