Coven Master Arif has designs on Allie's powerful blood, but sabotage from his lieutenant, Elric, and human intervention may not be enough to stop him.
Allie thought vampires were almost human; until she became one. Her friend Felicity is dating the son of a vampire hunter, yet has a psychic bond with one of his prey. These two girls are part of a diabolical plan to control destiny, and blood may not only be the catalyst for change, but also the master of manipulation behind it. Is a vampire made by their sire, or is one simply born to blood?
Cain and Felicity face an uncertain future. The venom of his bite protects her from hostile vampires, but gives him psychic influence over her. Would Felicity only accept becoming a vampire, due to his persuasiveness, and the fact that she’s a young girl in love? Perhaps there is a brighter future for her in the human world. Is Cain’s desire for Felicity’s love worth the loss of her life?
Felicity cannot divine the motives of Cain, the vampire who captured her gratitude and her heart. The historical account of his past makes her question if the addictive venom in his kiss is clouding her judgment. Is his thirst for her blood too strong for love to conquer? Under the attack of vampires and zombies; Felicity’s heart has already been lost to Cain, will she lose her life as well?
Shy Felicity never expected to attract the attention of a handsome young man... or a vampire, but if she can keep them both from killing each other she’ll need all the help she can get to navigate difficulties of addiction and desire; perils of zombies and vampires; and struggles with abuse, morality and...college.
