It was Price Hudson's mother who died, but Price feels like it was him. Everything that he used to enjoy--baseball, comics, even girls--seems petty and pointless now. He wants nothing more than to forget his old life and start over somewhere new, where no one knows him and no one expects anything from him.

So when his dad decides to move them an hour away, he welcomes the change. What he doesn't expect is to move in next to crazy, scary, noisy neighbors. And he certainly doesn't expect to become so wrapped up in the mystery behind their daughter's disappearance that finding out what happened to her consumes his life.

What he discovers will change his life--if it doesn't kill him.

by Braden Bell
$2.99 Amazon

Killing the queen of Mandralay was easy. Led by the queen’s sister, Saydee, the coup succeeded except for one small detail: one of the conspirators had a last minute burst of conscience and spirited the infant princess away. Unable to rule as queen while the true heir lives, Saydee orders her most trusted Bestial to find the girl at any cost and kill her.

X is a Bestial—little more than a monster—with no memories, no heart and no name. His only reason for being is to obey his mistress and, though it takes thirteen years, he finds the crown princess living as an orphan named Tallie. He attempts to kill the child, but her trusting nature sparks some long-lost humanity in him. Yet X remains a monster, and helping Tallie triggers a ferocious battle inside as he fights against his primal nature for her life--and his only hope of redemption. 

Meanwhile, Tallie confronts her true identity as crown princess, including grappling with the quickly-growing powers she inherits. But power is a two-edged sword, and it soon becomes clear that the same abilities she’ll use to challenge her aunt may also destroy her own soul. Can she find the balance before she loses everything she loves?
