Spark of Tears : All hope is lost. Beck, Sonas, their team, their beloved teachers…
Trapped in the darkness while madness claims them.
Escape lays beyond the shadows, but one thing stands in their way.
The love of Beck’s life.
Except she’s not Adara. She’s changed. Terrifying. Powerful.
“I’m not your child,” Beck snarled. A Chaos agent kicked him in the face, sending him sprawling backward. Until that point, he hadn’t been touched, which surprised him given the torture his teachers had endured before he’d found them.
Gaia rose to her feet and came down the stairs, her long red and orange hair falling in tangled waves down to her knees. It wasn’t beautiful, like Adara’s. It looked like it hadn’t seen a brush in weeks. The colors, though, were almost exactly the same, and the glowing eyes, although hers were small and narrow and terrifying.
She came down the stairs, her feet bare and slapping against the concrete steps. Her fingers trailed across Sonas’s face, and Sonas screamed in agony, recoiling from the Pyra burn.
Beck winced as she came close. She grabbed him by the throat and pulled him to his knees again as pain shot through his skin and into his very soul. He would have screamed if he could have drawn a breath.
Gaia looked up, small eyes widening as Eros strode into the room, and the cruel smile died on her lips. She dropped Beck, shuddering. “Do you know what’s different about you and I?” she mused as she made her way back up the stairs to her throne. “I love the pain. Eros, you didn’t tell me they were so weak.”
