Seattle has been at peace since before it was founded on the banks of the Puget Sound. The war between the witches and the snake shifters ended and they now live separate lives. Generations of distrust have kept them separated, until Ari Fitzgerald meets sexy Zachary Bennett, a young witch from the Queen City Coven.
Ari is the son of the lamia king. He needs to find the source of the black market trading in lamia venom before any other snake shifters are hurt, or worse. The young ones are most at risk, because their venom is more potent. Ari discovers the source is a witch and suspicion falls on Zac and his coven. Ari doesn’t want to believe it.
Zac works for his brother-in-law, a powerful bear shifter who doesn’t care about shifter politics. When three coyote shifters come to town, looking for black-market lamia venom and a witch to kidnap, Zac gets caught in the middle between the bears, the lamiae, and the power-hungry coyotes. He’s going to need all the help from Ari that he can get.
Ari and Zac must find the source of the venom before the city erupts into a dangerous war, with the two of them on opposite sides.
Cullen brightened and pulled it out. Only a couple months over twenty-one, he adored having the ability to legally buy alcohol.
“You too,” the waiter said to Ari.
Ari kept the retort I’m eighty-four off his lips by sheer will and stared at the man. “You’re not serious, are you?”
“Of course I am, sugar. I could lose my job.” The waiter winked at him.
Ari sighed and pulled out his wallet. He showed the waiter the picture. It said he was twenty-eight.
“Thanks. I’ll bring it out in just a second. My name’s Zac. Let me know if you need anything else.”
Zac. Short for Zachary? Zacharias. Zacharia, no “s”. Isaac. Izaia? Too many choices. It hit him that Zac had been gazing at him as though waiting for a response. Shit, had he asked Ari a question? What had he said?
How could he have eyes that gorgeous?
