Katelyn’s startled awake by the sounds of gunfire and shouting. She knows very well change is coming. And not just a small, simple change. War. A War that could possibly take everyone she loves from her. The vampire race has united in purpose for the first time in history, working together to protect themselves from the humans who want them gone. “I’m scared, Alec,” Katelyn admits. The crack of a gunshot sounds in the distance. “They’re here!” Alec exclaims. “What?! No!” “I have to go, Love.” Katelyn catches his arm as he turns to leave. “Be careful, Alec. Don’t die on me.” He can hear her fear in her voice, and her heart is racing. He doesn’t want to make any promises he’s not sure he can keep, so he doesn’t say anything. Instead, he gives her a lingering kiss before hurrying out the door. Come on, Alec thinks as he rushes outside. We’re ready for you.
