Red #2 – The Chimera’s Curse by Julia Golding
Come to the mark. Come to me. You know you must.

He said the same thing each time, repeating the message again and again so that she could hear its echo during the daylight hours as well as in the stillness of the night. She knew where he wanted her to go: he wanted her to meet him at the mark he had made deep in her mind, the breach between her and his dark presence. But she would not give in to him.
