Excerpt from Echoes of Memories:
The air left my lungs in a rush as my heart broke watching him suffer. I stepped inside, against his wishes, and inched toward him. “Noah,” I said just above a whisper. “Please, let me help you.”
He shook his head. “It’s too dangerous! I’m not right, Elsa. I’m not! Something is wrong with me! Oh, Gaia! Help me, please!”
A tear slipped down my cheek as I knelt in front of him, lowering myself farther to sit on my knees. “Mea lux, cor meum. Sum vestrum semper. I cannot go where you are not. We are bound by the anulum de lux. Your trials are my trials. Remember?”
As I spoke, his shaking stopped, and his breathing slowed. I slid my hands along his and wove my fingers through his. He took in my gaze. The deepest ocean blue swallowed by black. No colorful specks, no beautiful gold or silver. Just a black abyss that stared back at me. His eyelids were red and raw. His skin lacked the color it once had. Even his hair seemed duller than it should’ve been. His veins stuck out of his neck and forehead in blue-green. “I’m a monster now,” he whispered. “I feel it.”
I shook my head and shushed him. “I love you still.”
Echoes of Memories (Nepherium #2)
Published: 31 July 2014
Elsa's every move is scrutinized. She’s labeled a traitor by those she sought for protection, and kept from her family and team. Regaining memories has been a slow process. Too slow for the Council's liking, taking matters into their own hands.
The new captain has history with Elsa and operates with a hidden agenda. Even Elsa’s team reacts differently toward her. If only she could unlock her memories. Everything is playing right into Alexander's hand, even amassing an army with unconventional methods, designed to annihilate the Nepherium—starting with Noah. Elsa will do anything to stop Alexander ... even kill.
