The Intron Code : A death mage at large. A magical weapon of mass destruction. A city in peril.
In the aftermath of the destruction of Trubuilt 187 prison, Cass and her team of mage hunters discover that the death mage Kel and her protege Fly are moving forward with their plans for power and domination. Even worse, more rogue mages have emerged from the shadows, some allied with Kel and some in competition with her for the power that the mysterious Intron Code can bestow. Can the Mage Hunters unravel the mystery of the Intron Code and defeat the death mages before the entire city is torn apart?
“Kel,” Fly said slowly, holding up his free hand to show her that he wasn’t armed. “Kel, it’s me. It’s Fly.”
“You can’t have it! It’s mine!” she hissed at him. “You always try to take what’s mine! You can’t have it!”
Oh, shit, Fly thought. She was having another bad episode. Kel usually seemed to be able to keep herself together once she’d had her way with her victims, but if she went too long before taking another, her mind seemed to get further and further afield.
“I don’t…” he began to say, but she interrupted him.
“You always try to take it! You try to take what’s mine, and then you try to take me. Well, you can’t have it. You can’t have any of it! I’m not a weak little girl anymore; I’ll kill you, I’ll tear your life out of your fucking spine, I’ll…”
“It’s yours, Kel!” Fly said. “It’s all yours! I’m not going to take anything!”
He had no idea what she was talking about; when she was like this, Fly suspected that she was talking to someone from her past, not to him. But he also knew that there was no reasoning with her, not yet… not until she was done.
“Okay, okay!” Fly said, taking a step back. “Just finish what you’re doing there. You, um… you take it, or whatever, and then you’ll remember me, okay?”
