Strange things have always happened to Nia, and until now she’s written them off as flukes. At nineteen she has seen her fair share of odd occurrences and just feels lucky.
When Nia unknowingly spoke a prophecy on her eighteenth birthday she freaked out her best friend, Rhea. Nia realizes she needs to find some answers. Rhea makes her promise to go and see her Great Aunt Amarie, but she isn’t sure if her crazy aunt could really help.
Nia finds herself unexpectedly drawn to a stranger and begins dreaming of people who seem to know everything about her.
They offer little in the way of information as to how and why. It all feels too real but Nia is unsure, at least until she wakes up with a trinket from the encounter.
When dreams and reality collide Nia will have to face dangers she never knew existed. Ready or not she will have to discover her True Fate.
The house was dark from the outside and Nia wondered where they were headed and if there was even anyone inside yet. Eric opened the door and the house was dark inside too, except for the yellowish light coming from under the doorway they were heading towards. The moonlight shone in the windows showing the covered furniture. Nia guessed this safe house hadn’t been used in a while.
Eric opened the door then reached for Nia's hand, "Don't freak out, it’ll be okay, I promise.", he said squeezing her hand and sending as much calm her way as he could. Nia had no idea what was going on and why after avoiding her questions this was what he had said to her. When he opened the door the first thing she noticed was bloody rags in a waste basket. The scent of iron and antiseptic made Nia’s stomach roll and she gagged. Rhea's breath caught when she noticed the blood too and she shakily lowered herself into a chair holding her injured arm. She turned to Nia with a worried look in her eyes.
Time stood still for Nia as she saw his hand first, the unmistakable markings were a dead giveaway. ‘It can’t be.’ The scent of the blood clung to her senses making her stomach clench as Avery stepped out of the way giving her a clear shot to her worst nightmare. Nia's chest tightened and she felt like she would hurl, her focus went hazy, "No.", she whispered. She took a shaky step closer and her legs buckled beneath her. Eric reached for her just as her world gratefully faded to black.
