The year is 1971. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison are dead, all within a year of each other. Some of the greatest, most promising musicians snatched up by the dark specter of death. But, it was no accident of fate-they were taken.
Ashara Konrad, a rock music photojournalist, thinks she knows who the killer is: Her own twin sister, Zariaz. She's seen it happen before. . .days the music died. It began with Ashara's first love, her mentor, Ludwig Von Beethoven. Ashara was his "immortal beloved." His vampire lover.
Ashara fled from her sister in 1827, but a psychic connection between the two kept them together through the decades. Ashara knew of the curse-that 1,000 musicians had to be sacrificed for the one Zariaz could never have. Zariaz would drink in their talent, one and all, until she could play the song that would make the collective soul hers. In clusters over time, the curse was fed.
And in the Age of Aquarius, it is happening again.
