Merrick. Is. Back.
Merrick knows one thing: he cannot think about Bianca Monroe, say her name, or see her in person.
Then he's assigned the objective to attend the annual, week-long Celebration in the Central Network to search for the demigod Jote and protect his High Priestess, Geralyn.
Instead, he finds Bianca.
This time, he's not going to run away, nor let her go.
Read THE RETURN, the fifth short story in the Reader Request story, and a highly anticipated re-telling of the events in THE LOST MAGIC, but from Merrick's perspective.
