Reign of Shadows
(Descendants #3)
By Melissa Wright

Brianna can see her future, but it?s the past that haunts her. Plans laid in place centuries ago are threatening not only her and her sister, but all of the Seven Lines. As the shadows plot their way to old rule, the visions shift again. Her power has led to some hard choices?and the occasional stab wound?but this set of futures holds nothing but darkness.

Unable to bear the idea of losing the footing they've so recently gained, she turns the soldiers of the Seven. But with shadows hidden among the ranks, can she overcome the path they've set in place, or is she blindly following their lead?

Chapter Five Cont’d

He was suddenly standing, sure that Morgan would be able to at least give them a head start, but Brianna said, “No.”
“We’ll just talk to him. That’s all. We won’t make any decisions until we find out what Morgan has to say.” It wasn’t going to be easy, but they had Aern. And Aern had this new sway.
Brianna stood as well. “That’s not why you can’t go after him.” She’d been thinking about this for days, since before she’d known about Brendan. Since she’d realized what she and Emily were. She didn’t know if it was right, if it was the plan her mother had laid in place, but she wouldn’t be able to live with doing anything different. She had to protect them.
Logan was watching her, waiting. It was clear she wasn’t ready to make this decision. But she didn’t see any other way. “He’s too powerful, Logan. I have to help you.” She glanced at her hands. “I have to give you the tools to keep us all safe.”
It was not what he expected to hear. But Logan wasn’t a fool, and it didn’t take long for him to understand.
They were in over their heads.
There was more danger, something Brianna didn’t see them coming safely through. He stepped forward, eyes on her for a long moment before he asked in a low voice, “How bad is it?” At her hesitation, he said, “You have to tell me, Brianna. We need to know what we’re up against.”
She felt sick at the idea of what might come, at how bad it might get. She didn’t want to tell him that, didn’t want to say that it was all about to be torn away from them. But he was right, they had to know.
“They’re shadows,” she said. “They’ve got every power you’ve ever dreamt of. And they’re coming for us.”
Brianna sat alone in the dim light of the sitting room, ankles crossed under the edge of the chair. Her hands rested on her lap, tattoos staring up at her, a faint glow gathering over the center of her palms. It wasn't bright, not entirely real, but instead more like a tracer, like the trail of a sparkler, fleeting and half-there. She knew only she could see it. She and the other shadows. Whatever this otherworldly aura was, the human eye couldn't detect it, and the Seven were closer to human than shadow. Her power hummed through her, more tangible than the visions of light.
There was a soft click across the room, Logan entering behind her, and she drew back the power. She needed to use it, to learn to control and strengthen it, but she needed to hear Logan more, to see what he'd found out. And using the power exhausted her.
He stepped up behind her, hands wrapping over her shoulders to massage away the tension, and she leaned into him, tilting her head back.
