MY HIDDEN BEAST

The beautiful Professor had to face the fact that when she sat out to prove a negative she ended up facing the truth and almost starting a war across the civilized worlds with a hidden protector.

Micca was from one of the most prestigious Universities in the civilized system. That helped open doors for her when she and two students went out to try to solve a puzzle that involved missing heroes in recent history.

Special eyes that fascinated her and facts that she just did not want to believe, all with a green fog to befuddle the mind.
