(**This book contains mature and explicit content**)



Our scars have the power to remind us that the past was real.



Among the darkness of Hamelin, Germany, the darkest of all evils lingers. The group hear rumors of another Elemental at large and follow whatever leads they can find to locate their next target.
But this time, they are smaller in numbers and low on motivation, the trauma of losing their friends and teammates pulling them into despondency. As the group begin their mission, Kathrina makes a
dramatic discovery, but her decision to keep it from everyone could lead to tragedy for not only her, but everyone else. The group get to know their newest allies, Linette and Sherlock, more, and
Elijah struggles to face his new power alone, refusing help from his allies. However, as they proceed with their mission, they soon learn, that, to destroy a monster, you must become one. But as it
was once said, you cannot force someone to become something they do not want to be.



(The fifth instalment in the Warlock series)
