In 6,000 years no vampire has ever defied Lilith, Queen of the vampires...until now.
Moira and Carl Morgan have saved the city from the horror of Michael and his wives, but victory has come at terrible cost.
And there are consequences to every choice, every victory.
Word has spread that someone has broken Lilith’s power, that someone has defied the ancient Queen.
And she’s not happy.
