In the fourth episode of The Freelancers, we move away from near-apocalyptic events to a more introspective story. That’s not to say there aren’t some insane set pieces… but I thought it was about time we got to tell a more personal tale, one with real stakes for Rafe and Ana – not only as individuals, but as a unit.
The first three books had them hunting down threats that had a face (that could be punched…), but in the world of The Circle, not every supernatural entity can be so easily contained – and then there’s the added drama of it afflicting the one person in their life who isn’t aware of the magical world around them… And I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed trying something different with a genre that always has to raise the states with the next book.
How do you fight something that knows you better than you know yourself?
A plague is spreading. It writes on skin, bringing the innermost thoughts of its victim to the surface.
Until there is no more skin to write on. Then… it brings death.
Ana and Rafe are completely unaware of the plague, caught up in case after case, until someone they’re close to is infected.
Soon, it’s a race against the clock to save them – and there’s only one way to stop the spread.
To pass it on…
