Meridian Six

by

 Jaye Wells



BLURB
A dark, new world from USA Today Bestselling author Jaye Wells ...

In a world at war, freedom is a luxury paid for with blood.

The daughter of a rebel leader, Meridian Six was used as a propaganda tool and blood slave to her vampire captors for years after her mother died. When she finally escapes, she runs toward a red light signal that leads the way to the underground world of human rebels. All she wants is freedom, but what she finds instead of a rebellion in search of a hero--and for some reason they think she fits the bill. The vampires used her famous name as a tool of oppression, but now the humans want to use it to inspire a revolution.

FRIDAY 56

"Hard metal slammed into my soft temple. Ripples of pain pulsed through my head, but fear was strangely absent. Shock, probably. Or just resignation. It wasn't the first time a man had pressed a gun to my head. Castor loved a little gun play before he f***** my vein. More times than I could count, I'd taunt him into rages hoping he'd just pull the trigger."

Wells, Jaye (2013-12-27). Meridian Six (p. 56). Jaye Wells. Kindle Edition.
