Civil war has erupted between two vampire factions. When Baskell Arundia stealthily returns to North America he is prepared to do anything it takes to defeat Serena Longer, First Councilwoman of North America. Vampires should be lords over the human cattle; not hiding in the shadows.
Everyone thought Serena followed Goddess Artemis in defending humans. That is until she begins acting strange and then the bodies start to pile up. Is Serena using Pale Blood Magic, an evil magic that drains its victims of blood and power?
Sexy Alexis Night Runner, Captain of Artemis’ Warriors and Serena’s lover, is shocked by Serena’s behavior and determined to find the cause of it. Unfortunately, the war with Arundia waits for no one.
How can Alexis save a woman who is trying to kill her? But it’s not only Serena’s life at stake; twelve-year-old Ariel Morningstar-Longer, Serena’s blood daughter and heir, is being stalked by her mother. Alexis is torn between defending Ariel and saving Serena.
A vampire society unlike any you’ve read about where magic rules the night and turns lovers to enemies.
