Predator (Project Zed,6) by Kelex
After months of being in a coma, Parker awakens chained to a hospital bed, his skin scarred and raw. He’s barely able to look at his own image in a mirror, his body left in a painful ruin by something others call a gift. Parker has no plans to remain in Bear Mountain or help a bunch of freaks win some war he has no part in.
But there’s not much left for him to go home to. With the help of Samuel, he finally realizes the safest place for him is right where he is… and there’s no reason not to try to learn a little control while he’s there… before he burns himself alive.
That control is put to the test as two shifters come into his life. One is quiet and persistent. The other is wild and chaotic. He craves their touch, but refuses it. Now locked in a scarred body, he’s no longer the pretty party boy he’d been before a bolt of lightning carried him to Bear Mountain.
Who would want someone like him, disfigured by the very lightning contained within him?
Confronted with monsters and magic, he has to come to terms with who he is now, learn to accept the image in the mirror, and face a future he’d never have imagined in a million years.
