They say every man has a breaking point-every man can be pushed off the edge. Scott Remington entered EDEN with the heart of a lion. He forged glory in the furnace of war. But on the heels of dawn, darkness awaits. Only when stretched to the limit will a man truly learn who he is. That limit is about to be breached. Lines will be crossed. Sides will be chosen. And faith will be put to the test. Will the righteous prevail?

When she finally spoke again, her voice was sweeter than ever. “I’ll always love you, too.” “I’ll see you in a bit.” “I’ll be there.” Then she was gone. It took a minute for the group to

cannot get involved. What Yuri does, he must answer for. That is the way it must be.” “His name is Nijinsky,” said Varvara. “Nijinsky?” “Yes. The man who killed Nicole.” Jayden stepped away from the door. “C’mon, I’ve heard enough.
