One of the last two natural-born Demon Hunters left in the world, Chase is part of a team that includes her father Caleb and her boyfriend Alex.

They are intent on capturing an enemy who escaped the trap they'd set for several members of his kind.

They want one of them alive to see if they have any information about who killed two of their allies and the whereabouts of Jak the other Demon Hunter.

However tensions between Chase, Caleb and Alex might just threaten the mission and endanger themselves and everyone on the planet.

As the threat they face could prove bigger than anything they've ever confronted before.


4. The Truth

Alex and Caleb arrived on the roof top neither of them having said a word each other on the walk up seventeen flights of stairs.


Chase ignored the obvious tension between them just said to them.


“Wow, I didn't think it would take the two of you that long to get up here you're getting slow at your ages.”


“Yes, if only you'd taken him down in an easily accessible area, maybe where the trap was set this all would've been done by now and we could be following up on any information this thing will give us.” Caleb said


Again, Chase was stung by her dad's criticism and this time he'd said things in front of Alex, it was so unlike him to be so harsh towards her.


She figured he was angry and grieving, he wouldn't admit it, but Baine and Isobel were more than just allies, they were his friends and he was a man who didn't really make friends, he was so wrapped up in the mission.


One he'd been fighting since long before she was even born.


A fight he'd been destined to be part of like she was, The fight their family had been part of since the human uprising against Demons centuries ago.


“So do you want to question him or should I.” Alex asked Caleb


“No need I already asked him all the questions as I got bored waiting for you, he said Caleb interrupted her before she could finish.”


“You questioned him and what makes you so sure he told you the truth.”


“Truth spell.”


“You used a truth spell, how do you know he's not just feigning compliance grasp of magyck isn't your strong point is it.”


“Come on dad its not an actual Demon I'm trying to control, it's a human I think I can handle it.”


“See you continue to underestimate these worthless scum, some of them have been trained from an early age just as you have and some of them have Demon blood inside them to boost their strength to go up against hunters like you, so unless you're looking to get killed by one of them get your act together.”


“But'... Chase was just about to reply and launch into an angry tirade at her dad, but he cut her off before she got the chance to even begin.


“But nothing Chase of late you been seriously arrogant and overconfident and you and Alex have been too cosy and its getting in the way of you doing your jobs and consequently screw ups like today's happen.”


“From Alex I expect an occasional misstep he's only human after all, but you Chase are more than that, you should be above this sort of thing.”


“You know what I am above dad, listening to you lecture everybody because you can't deal with the fact, two people probable the only two people bar me, who actually liked you are dead and you haven't grieved for them.”


“Instead, you got angry and you're taking that anger out on us, well it stops now, do what you are always lecturing me to do focus that anger where it belongs to the Demons and their followers, lets go to this ones worshipping spot, she said pointing to the young man lying on the ground at her feet, and kill every last demon worshipping piece of detritus there, see if that can't cheer you up.”
