Beaten, bullied, bruised, broken. Those all describe Nala. Well thats how she used to be before she went through "the change." When she goes on vacation she is kidnapped by a lady claiming that she will make her a top notch assasin. Five years later she is now beutiful and no longer looks like how she did when she was younger. That's because she went through "the change" and became a shifter. She hates shifting and she is no ordinary shifter, but a Jewel. A shifter who has special abilites and doesnt belong to a pack. She is now the strongest assasin and all the boys want her, especially the boys in her unit. But the thing is she hates shifting even though she loves her lion. She soon has to make tough decisions when vampires and rogues are out for her blood, and she starts to fall in love when she thought love didnt exist. And worst of all she had to live with the boy that made her human life a living hell, but lately he has been acting strange. Oh and what happens when all the other Jewel assasins want to kill her an her unit? Will she be willing to make the ultimate sacrafice to protect her little family of eight? And will the darkness taint her pure soul or will she become a demon like the vampires?
