The first mistake they made was slaughtering her pack.
The second was taking her to the compound where she was rescued, along with Joslyn and the Dragon, Zadoc.
They won't live long enough to make mistake number three.
All the Marine combat techniques in the world never trained Alpha to care for X.
He took her in, fed her, clothed her…yearned for her.
But the one thing he failed to do was keep her safe.
Those who meant X harm were ready and waiting.
They won't need to wait long.
Alpha had killed in the line of duty.
He'll do it all again and more.
Because he's coming for them.
They won't know it, not until it's too late.
This is the salvation of X.
