Destiny brings them together, while powerful and dark vampiric forces conspire to tear them apart.
Vampire Servaes, the Marquis de Normant, never asked for his dark gift. He has survived immortality with restrained anger against a master who stole life from him. Not to mention the foolish young ones who abuse their supernatural powers. Eternity seemed endless…until Hathor.
Hathor Vinceti, an American visiting her aunt, uncovers an underworld in a London club where the undead congregate to feed on “deserving” humans. There she meets Servaes and comes across the wretched young vampires looking to forge reputations.
Behind the scenes, the council rules the eight Tribes of the Vampire. Sometimes their actions are justified, and other times they're not. When news of Hathor reaches them, they become fearful of what she knows.
