The Lizard King is the second of three special edition episodes from Dead Things Season Two, also known as Dark Dreams and Dead Things. Episode Two is the second third of the full-length book and is for readers who prefer to read shorter novels.
There’s only so much one pack can take, and, for the Belladonna pack, the hits just keep on coming. A violent crime puts the girls in the crosshairs of the human police, while Ember learns she’s the key to solving the trinity’s sudden magical dry spell, and fixing it means putting the needs of the many over her own deepest desire.
Mace is certain he’s in hell, but not one of his own making. Somebody from his past is determined to watch him relive both the best and worst times of his life, and just when he thinks he’s got the culprit figured out, he realizes he’s never been more wrong.
Quinn is doing his best to hide that he’s losing his mind a little more every day, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to move things forward with Tristin. But the secrets just keep piling up, and Tristin suspects he’s far from okay. Tensions escalate when Quinn confides in a mysterious boy the pack has branded an enemy.
Just as Kai and Rhys begin to find a rhythm to their newly budding romance, they’re thrown a curveball literally nobody could have seen coming, and Kai finds himself relegated to the sidelines even though the pack needs all the help it can get.
A trio of tragedies hits the pack, and a new, far greater enemy is revealed. The key to solving everything is simple-they just have to break into a mysterious Grove run facility, fight their way through a bunch of psychotic mythological creatures, and save a girl who might be too damaged to help them. Sounds easy, right?
