Death's Echo
by Rachel M. Raithby
Series: The Complex
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance
Release Date: December 9, 2016

After a brutal war between Humans and Metas, an uneasy truce is declared in the Seldova solar system. After the treaty signing, the Complex is created on the lone planet, Lorn—a blended community of Humans and Metas, all sent to test the waters of a more peaceful existence between the two races. Living in a domed society can only mean one thing for the Humans and Metas. Chaos.
Reviled banshee Aqulla Dayshon sees death, feels the last moments of a victim’s life and senses the echoes they leave behind. They call for vengeance, and she is helpless to deny their cries, to deny her very nature.

Intra Jaylon Rowe is the law within the Complex. When a series of murders hit the community, he enlists Aqulla’s help. But solving the murders won’t be easy.

Boundaries will be pushed, and rules broken. And as lines are crossed and passion ignites, a banshee’s call will scream.

Death is here, and it wants them all.

Hands around her throat, lungs on fire, a desperate plea used with her last breath. Aqulla was doused in darkness, sucked into the void where only the last moments of life lingered. Echoes of the past, a mirror into a woman’s violent death.

Kill him, she screamed. Avenge me, she demanded. Her commands pulsed through Aqulla’s blood like her own heartbeat, driving her on, controlling her body. She was death’s tool, a weapon used to wreak vengeance on those who had committed the greatest sin. Her body shifted, claws curling, sharp, lethal weapons ready for use. Aqulla looked into the man’s eyes. He was confused, frightened even. His mouth moved as he formed words, words Aqulla couldn’t make out for the screams in her head. “Coffee,” she read from his lips.

He wants coffee, she thought, feeling detached. Give him death, the voice whispered in her head.
The man clambered to his feet, his chair scraping loudly across the floor, his coffee mug like a barrier between them.

Her heart pounded harder, the screams grew louder. Every cell in her body urged her to make the kill, but a small distant part of Aqulla held back. There remained at least a semblance of control. It took everything in her power to crawl back from the edge. It would have been so much easier to fall. Even as she walked away, the cries for vengeance followed her. Aqulla barged past another waitress, not even registering her presence. Her shoulder crashed into the door leading her out back and then finally alone, she gained enough control to shift back. Sweat coated her skin as if she’d been exercising. Ragged, desperate air rushed into her lungs. She’d been so close to killing him. Her grandmother was right. She’d never live a normal life. Her best hope was to live alone in a remote area. That was if she made it out of the Complex without giving in.

“What was that?”

Aqulla whirled around, surprised she’d not sensed anyone’s approach. She’d been far too busy trying to gain control of her body.

“You! Are you following me?”

Shock, guilt, then defense filtered across his gaze. “I was doing my job and making sure you were doing yours.”

“Well, I’m here. You can run along now.”

“I saw what happened,” he said, crossing his arms across the wide expanse of his chest.

Panic gripped at her. A sudden need to flee raced through her veins, but where would she go? Aqulla was inside a dome, on a lone planet, a dome she had to stay inside for years without killing anyone, without giving in to the nature at her core.

Rachel M. Raithby started her writing career in 2013 and hasn't looked back. She draws her inspiration from the many places she has lived and traveled, as well as from her love of the paranormal and thriller movies. She can often be found hiding out with a good book or writing more fast-paced and thrilling stories where love always conquers all. She now lives in rural England with her young family.

Her books include, the adult Paranormal Romance novels 'The Deadwood Hunter Series' and the Young Adult series The New Dawn Novels, including the YA Best seller 'Winter Wolf.'
