He stood. His legs stayed, but his chest threatened to crack open with each breath from where he had been stabbed. Death hadn’t taken away his pain. It now exploded inside him. He opened the door. Steel knives of frigid air sliced into him. He staggered back and gripped the door’s edge. Snow swirled, beating at him.
A face appeared through the snow. A gray robed man lunged at him. “What are you doing here?”
Ben lurched as the man shoved him back into the shack, and alongside his weakness, fury blasted through him. He punched the man in the face. In the seconds the man staggered back, Ben grabbed a hook off a ceiling chain. They circled the shack, eyeing one another.
“Human, you can’t take me down.” The man lumbered around him, a hulking figure.
A piercing pain lit across Ben’s head as the man probed his brain. The pain intensified. The man came at him. Ben dodged right like a drunkard and swung hard. The hook sunk into the man’s back. He screamed and fell to the floor. Ben stumbled back and fell to his knees. The room spun. The pain dissipated. The man flopped down and was still. Blood spread in an incriminating stain across the light gray wool of his robe.
Ben crawled to him, shaking from adrenalin and the cold. He searched for the hidden door. Finally, his fingers felt a notch in the wood. He lifted the latch to the cellar and with all his remaining strength, rolled the massive man into it. He crashed with a thud. Ben stared down at his victim.The man’s hands crossed his chest as if posed in death. God, forgive me. Then he slammed the door down to hide his crime and stood up.
Laura, help me now.
But she remained lost to him. Thinking more clearly, he took another hook and pulled down a whip from the wall. They may come in handy.
Then he stepped out into the gale.
Dizziness grabbed him again. He staggered out into the winter abyss. Step by step he headed away from the Elyon world and toward his own. The trees held him up when his legs could not. The cold snarled inside him, claiming him, but he would not give into it.
It could not have him. Not yet.

Evil lurks within…
When Caleb Madroc is used against his will as part of his father’s plan to breed a secret community and infiltrate society with their unique powers, he vows to save his oppressed people and the two children kept from him. Seven years later, Laura and Ben Fieldstone’s son is abducted, and they are forced to trust a madman’s son who puts his life on the line to save them all. The enemy’s desire to own them—or destroy them—leads to a survival showdown. Laura and Ben must risk everything to defeat a new nemesis that wants to rule the world with their son, and Caleb may be their only hope—if he survives. But must he sacrifice what he most desires to do so?
