(BOOK THREE OF THE DEERBORN SERIES) Having her life completely ripped away, Sybil Deerborn is attempting to rebuild what little she has. Accepting now that she is a pureblood shapeshifter, she realizes that the only way for her to overcome the loss of her innocence is to embrace it. Saying good-bye to Bon Resi wasn't easy, and life in The Commune doesn't seem any easier. Balancing her new workload as well as finding time to let her wounds heal, Sybil is lost in the small community around her. Except The Commune now offers a whole new series of experiences for Sybil to endure. Aaron seems to be drifting away from her as she strengthens her friendship with Graeme, trying desperately to keep the two men in her life happy. Not to mention Patricia seems to have found herself completely infatuated with one of The Commune members, which complicates the relationship between the two sisters. Left with the deep seeded fear that everything will unfold before she is prepared, Sybil waits for the moment when she can exact her revenge. There's nothing more in the world that Sybil Deerborn wants than to kill each and every single one of The Council, no matter what the circumstances may be.
