Into The Darkness by Kira Adams EXCERPT, Releases November 15


It was supposed to be a way to end the devastation in the Middle East, but instead a darkness is unleashed unlike anything the world has ever seen before. 

Ike Glass is well versed in chaos, but even he is unprepared for what the world will become after the outbreak. Ace Cullen has been loyal to his country ever since he was brought to the states as a young boy, but it’s difficult to stand by a country that can’t even take responsibility for their own actions. Phoenix Blue just wants a night of mindless sex… is that too much to ask? Always a black sheep, she shocks everyone as she finds the strength inside herself to protect the ones she cares about, and fight to see another day. They were strangers when the virus took over, but tragedy will bring them together in ways they never thought possible as they descend into the darkness.


“Do you think you will ever be able to forgive yourself?” By the look on his face I can tell the actions from his past have been eating him alive.

“Maybe…someday. I have a lot to make up for.” 

“Just take it one day at a time. All you have to do is be a better person than you were yesterday.” I’m not sure where the wisdom is coming from, but I’m going with it. 

He takes a few steps toward me, lowering his voice so it’s just barely audible. “You make me want to.”

I swallow loudly, millions of thoughts running through my head. “Um, what?” 

“You make me want to be a better person.” He basically spells it out for me. 

My heart rate instantly spikes, goose bumps rising all over my body. Suddenly basic motor functions become foreign to me.

“I…you…I…” I can’t seem to form a full sentence as I stutter incoherently.

“What is it?” he asks, now close enough that I can feel his warm breath on my ear, sending chills down my spine.

My breath hitches as he again invades my personal bubble. Although I am slightly aware of the moaning coming towards us from every angle, I forget where we are. I forget that we can’t simply be two people enjoying one another’s company. 

Our lips are so close to touching, my heart rate doubles. I can practically taste him. I want his lips on mine as badly as I need air in the moment. And I’m positive he is going to give me just that when I notice him pull away slightly. 

“Hold that thought,” he says as he quickly slips away from me. “We have some business to attend to first.”

The thought doesn’t come around again as moments later we are joined by Ike who has come to relieve me so I can get some rest. 

I can’t believe I almost let him kiss me. I can’t believe how badly I wanted it…
