Shia felt proud of himself upon finding where his dear King was stationed. If Dimitri was there then his hounds were too. He needed those brats. The last batch of hounds he created were failures. He tried the natural way of marking but still failed. Their DNA's weren't taking the new genes forced into their system. The first five humans he turned using the last of Cerberus 1's blood were a success. They were obeying and bloodthirsty just the way he wanted.

Taking the back roads and the coverage of heavily forested areas, he made his way to Verans with his loyal wolves to the revolution. Hiding at a hybrid pack was pathetic to Shia. The mix breeds to him were mistakes on the goddess' part. Though his hounds had both wolf and vamp in them, he made sure the wolf genes were dominant. The vampire gene was used to make their bloodlust stronger while the wolf gene will take care of obedience, shifting, agility and quick healing. The many he had hidden can easily shift and are used as a trap for Dimitri and his suckup for a friend Jakobe.

Smiling to himself, he was ready to bring the so-called king to his knees.

'Six miles out, sir' one of his men relayed. The van he traveled in, was one of many. To humans, they can be silly hunters looking for good game or tourists just passing through but he stuck to the back roads.

'When you're close, get a lay of the land. Surround the border,' he returned.

'Yes, sir.'

He can just smell the blood of Dimitri's mate on his hands. Turning to his companion, he smirked. "I bet you can't wait for your family reunion. Your sister will be so disappointed that she wasn't there for your first shift. How does it feel to be exactly like her? That's what you wanted right," Shia taunted.

Rachel looked at the man she considered a full-blown monster. The voices in her head won't stop talking and she was hungry but not the hungry she knew she should feel. Waking up from what Creator called transition, she couldn't remember little things. She couldn't remember where she lived or how she got to that place with all the blood and werewolves as she was told. Creator, she was told to call him, kept mentioning a sister. A sister who didn't want her to be blessed with the wonderful gift of being a hellhound. A sister who didn't want to share her role as alpha and the riches of being an alpha. A sister who helped a man called Dimitri to overthrow her Creator. Thankful for her confusion to be cleared up and how concerned the Creator was of her well being, she believed him. Elena was the enemy. She was going to stop her sister from ruining the Creator's plan of reclaiming his rightful spot as the wolf king.

Upon Dimitri's warning, Jakobe stopped and shifted back to his human form. The wolves who accompanied him stopped behind him but stayed in wolf form. The Royal beta wielded power that can make any alpha bow into submission. They followed his lead which took them west of the compound they left behind. The scents that met them were human, the woods were bordering the town. Jakobe took a moment to sense the hostile wolves, they were near. Too near to the humans. "We go right. Avoid any human fatalities," he ordered shifting back to wolf form. The sun was going down, the town was closing up for the night but that didn't stop any humans from being out of their homes. He led the group to what looked like a park. He growled in anger when he saw the wolves skulking across the park and onto the semi-populated street. They rushed forward before any humans were attacked. Screams of fear pierced the somber evening. The wolves bounded into the street causing cars to stop abruptly and colliding with each other. People scream and ran to safety. Jakobe allowed his wolf to take over, he needed his wolf's power for this. There were fourteen rogue wolves to their ten but that didn't falter their confidence.

Vane barked the order of circling the wolves, his men obeyed immediately going after the rogues. He went after three that were chasing a group of people. The fear on their faces fueled him to protect them.
