the COUSINS: Chimera
by Jane Hegre, O. Hegre
People are not at the top of the food chain. Instead, an evolutionary offshoot, the Cousins, secretly controls human society. Superstrong and intelligent, they are beings who feed on the blood of men and women to survive.
The Cousins exist in the shadows, careful to hide their presence. They follow two rules: Only feed on the terminally ill. Don’t feed on the young.
Kathy Jordan must learn to abide by these mandates after a chance encounter at work turns her into the strangest creature of all: a chimera. Part human and part Cousin, she struggles to survive in this new world of dark desires and seductive temptations. Just when she thinks she’s getting her new powers under control, she is pushed into the spotlight of a murder investigation. A Cousin is breaking the rules, and a series of young women in her town have turned up dead.
Soon Kathy, along with Sheriff Jim Richardson and Dr. Mark Edwards, embarks on a journey to uncover the unspeakable secrets of the Cousins and her mysterious mentor, Commandant Girard Negrescu.
Unfortunately for Kathy and humanity, Negrescu has big plans for his chimera and will destroy anyone who gets in his way.
