An excerpt from Jenny Foster’s Lost Moon available exclusively in Souls and Shadows.
For two years, I have had only one goal. Revenge.
The wounded man raised his hand and pressed one finger to his lips. Be still.
Hailey didn’t even dare to breathe, let alone nod. Run, her inner voice yelled, and as if he had read her thoughts, he shook his head. Then he opened his eyes.
This could not be. This had to be another nightmare.
From his undoubtedly human face, the eyes of a big cat stared at her. Vertical pupils, as black as night, were set off against a bright, almost sparkling green. The hairs on the back of her neck rose, as if to confirm the unmistakable presence of a predator. Hailey began to shake uncontrollably.
That was when he blinked, and all that she believed she had seen was gone.
Human eyes on a human face, desperately trying to tell her something. Then she noticed that his hand was touching her shoulder.
Hailey blinked until her blurry surroundings revealed five bloody fingers, and she could see the unmistakable green in his eyes looking at her behind them.
Five fingers, and then one of them vanished, as he hid it in the palm of his hand.
Four. Are you ready? With his eyes, he glanced toward the left in the direction of the street from where she had come.
Three. Hailey lowered her head by half an inch. His body tensed up.
Two. He closed his eyes and pulled himself up until he was crouching on his knees.
