Daughters of Darkness

Unearthly Beauty

There's something strange about the new girls
in town. Briar Creek, Oregon, has never seen
anything like the supernaturtal grace of Rowan,
Kestrel, and Jade, three sisters who move into the
dilapidated old house next to Mark and
Mary-Lynnette Carter. Mark is obessed with
Jade-but she and her sisters have a secret.
And when Mark and Mary-Lynnette follow them
into the woods one night, they are plunged into a
nightmare beyond their imagination. Because the
sisters are fugitives from the Night World, and their
brother Ash is hot on the trail behind them.
He's ruthless, gorgeous, and he has orders to bring
the girls back at all costs. And when he sees
Mary-Lynnette, he decides to take her, too...

"Mary-Lynnette, this is Ash.

He's here to visit his aunt and his sisters," Clau-
dine said.
Ash got up, all in one lovely, lazy motion. "Hi."
He offered a hand.
Mary-Lynnette reached for it automatically,
muttering a greeting and looking up at his face
just as she touched it. And-
This was the part that was hard to describe.
Something happened.
Hey, don't I know you?
She didn't. That was the thing. She didn't know
him-but she felt that she should. She also felt as
if somebody had reached inside her and touched
her spine with a live electric wire. The room
turned vaguely pink. Her throat swelled and she
could feel her heart beating there.
She couldn't see anything except his eyes. And
those eyes were strange, prismlike, changing color
like a star seen through heavy atmosphere. Now
blue, now gold, now violet.
Oh, take this away. Please, I don't want it.
