Exiled by M.R. Merrick Excerpt & Giveaway

Power Will Flourish

Lives Will be Lost

Nothing, Will be Forgotten

Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase's birthday, the bloodline stopped. 

Exiled without the Circle's protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle's agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world. 

Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can't do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna - a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret. In their attempt to stop them however, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle's plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other's life depending on it.

Here's an excerpt:

I was trying to wrap my head around the idea that there were Underworlders out there that weren't completely evil, but though Rayna had saved my life, I was still having trouble with it.  After years of being told one thing, it made it hard to believe otherwise, and the last three years of being subjected to the Underworld's attacks didn't help.
More astonishing than her saving me, Rayna hadn't tried to kill me.  Now that was a twist I never saw coming.  Although we fought, I couldn't help but wonder:if I hadn't jumped at the chance to attach her, would my nose still be aching?
Considering all the strange things Marcus had said, I figured it might not hurt to stop by that address.  It would give me a chance to see what they were all about; plus, I had a strange urge to know more about Rayna.  If there were people who could be trusted, I was interested.  A hunter on my side would be great, but about the demon, I wasn't so sure.  She might have been helpful once the night before, but I didn't want to get ahead of myself.
