Includes The Boon by Jocelyn Montana, an Immortals of Ulterra story set in the underworld:
A human desperate to escape. An ancient god summoned from his prison and forced to offer her a single boon. Now that she’s locked in his sights, the entire underworld may burn.
Devon only has hours left before the harpy venom in her blood will turn her into a harpy forever, eliminating any chance she’d ever have to escape the underworld. She needs someone to help her before her time runs out.
Rerek has finally been released from his prison after millennia, yet ancient magic binds him to the one who set him free. He must offer her a single boon. Her request isn’t so simple. The harpy venom must be vanquished and the only way he can do that, is to replace it with his own. A venom his kind only use to breed.
All Devon has ever wanted is to leave the underworld forever. All Rerek has ever done with humans, is turn them into one of his thrall. The magic calls them to each other, but will they answer?
