[Book 2 of the Coldblooded Compassion series]
"I hate you."
After suffering for months inside a place that isn't supposed to exist, she isn't in the best shape. In fact, she's practically beyond repair. Even her best friend can't find the power to heal her. She goes from day to day willing her positivity to return to her. She finally begins to accept her new, tragic reality when an old face pops up. But the newcomer isn't alone. With him comes a set of companions who she automatically finds an interest in- a strong interest.
He isn't in the best shape either, but it's not a twist of fate that has made him this way. He's lost many friends that were close to him, but that isn't the reason he behaves this way. Deep down inside his heart is a black field of despair and anger. It bubbles up constantly, sending him into fits of unnecessary rage. This has given him the title of "hothead." But don't tell him, or it might be the last thing you say.
To add to the chaos, the Shredder has finally wrapped his fingers around New York City. After the turtles saved New York from the Kraang invasion, Shredder stepped forward and claimed the heroic title. His sly and deceitful personality is perfect to fool ignorant citizens, so he always gets his way. And right now, he wants the turtles' heads.
It gets worse. A storm has started to brew in a distant forest, causing living things to melt into mindless monstrosities. The infection taints anyone who comes into contact with the creatures, infecting them with the same disease. Matters get worse as the turtles return home to find that the storm originated from New York City. Everywhere they turn, there are hundreds of innocent people who were taken captive by the mysterious rain. And without a fix, this may be a race to save lives that they can't win.
"I hate you, too."
