Mitchell Faulconbridge was born to be sacrificed. Growing up in a cult left him shattered and alone. The ancient goddess they worshipped destroyed his family and his trust. He challenged the goddess three times and failed to defeat her, then was forced to kill to escape. He spent the next two decades scrubbing the memories from his mind. Now he wants nothing more than to run his landscaping business and forget the horrors of the colony they called Calpulli. But when the cult’s spiritual leader kidnaps a child, only Mitchell knows how to find him. Calpulli drags him home where the goddess waits — and is still demanding his blood. Will the fourth time be the charm, or will the goddess claim them all?
