Darkness Breaks (Darkness Falls Series, Book 2) Now Available
Sylas constantly pressures Kayla to choose the life of a Day Taker. But until Kayla knows what Monarch is planning, she can’t make her choice. Plus there’s Aiden. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t stop thinking about him.
As Kayla’s memories resurface, the pieces of her history unfold. She learns of Cell 7, a place that Kayla believes holds the answers to the creation of the virus. But getting to Cell 7 is a dangerous mission. And with Kayla's strength weakening, it's one mission she might not make it through alive.
When the disease spread through the world, people had no choice but to go into hiding. The Colony is hidden deep underground, far away from the vampires—humans that were transformed by the disease. The vampires are hideous, starving, and they will kill any human they come across.
Seventeen-year-old Kayla is a Bellator, a warrior that protects The Colony. In order to survive, there are three rules she must follow:
Rule #1—Never go out after dark.
Rule #2—Always carry a weapon.
Rule #3—No matter what, never EVER get bit.
But what happens when the rules Kayla has always lived by can no longer apply?
The Highers run The Colony and accept nothing less than perfection. One slip up can mean death. Kayla has always worked hard to follow the rules and strive for perfection. But during a moment of weakness, she lets her imperfections show. Her punishment is worse than death. She is chosen for The Gathering and is thrown out into a world full of starving vampires.
No one has ever survived The Gathering, at least that’s what Kayla’s been told. But when she runs into a group who insist they were once part of The Gathering, Kayla discovers the Highers have been keeping secrets. Secrets that could lead to a cure.

The sky is black, the streets are full of cries, and my clothes are drenched with either rain or blood…maybe both. I’ve broken a rule and the consequences could be severe.
Rule #1—Never go out after dark.
The broken buildings, lost in the dirt of disease, tower the sides of the debris-covered roads. I swing a sharp right and dip down into the underground tunnels, away from the dead city, away from them. But a hand grabs the back of the shirt and yanks me back.
My weapon slips from my fingers and falls to the ground, clanking against the cement ground.
Another rule broke: rule #2—Always carry a weapon.
The monster snarls, fangs gleaming, drool dripping from its rotting lips. I squirm from its grip and dodge to the right, but another one appears, just as hungry, and blocks my exit. I’m cornered. I inch back, my back pressing against the concrete walls that soaked with filthy water which seeps into my clothes.
It’s as dark as death down here, but I can still make out the blood dripping from the monsters eyes, the gaping wounds mapping its flesh. Its fangs tremble for my neck, desperate to devour—needing to feed. I search the ground for my weapon—I need my weapon.
But it seizes me by the shoulders and presses its fleshless fingers into my arms. My skin starts to give. If it breaks, I’ll be infected. I should be afraid—I should fear for my life. But I’m hollow.
I kick the monster between the legs, but it doesn’t faze …maybe it’s not male? Male or not, I’ve pissed it off. It tips its head back and growls. Then it clutches my throat. Blood pours from its eyes. I ram my elbow into its chest, hard. But it barely budges. It’s a strong one.
They all are.
And humans are weak.
It dips its nose toward my neck and takes a deep whiff, like I’m a top grade sirloin steak. I whack it in the chest and kick it in the shin, refusing to give up. Finally, it loses balance and stumbles backwards. Not missing a beat, I skittered around it and swerve around the other one. Then I run.
But a few steps later, I fall, my nose cracking against the concrete. I roll over, moaning in pain. The monster hover above me, blood dripping out of it’s eyes like raindrops. Not a good sign. The more blood, the hungrier it is. It assess me over with blood soaked eyes. Death is looking me right in the eyes, yet why am I not afraid? This is the closest they’ve ever gotten to me and I should be terrified.
It’s lips part. “No!”
My blood freezes. I’ve never heard one speak. I didn’t think they could speak.
It turns away from me, and wanders back down the tunnel, the other one following at its heels.
I stay on the ground, my jaw slack with shock. Because vampires never EVER leave humans alive.
