In the clandestine world of vampyres, Cianan MacLeer, a 2,000 year old Master Vampyre, is a very patient man. His long, arduous search for his Chosen One has brought him to the deserts of Arizona, which most consider the outer ring of Hell, to find his sacrifice, Kylie O'Rourke. He needs her blood in order to become what he aspires to be-a living, breathing god. But an unknowing Dracove, Grantlund MacNessa, interrupts that plan. Grant will do anything to stop Cianan from destroying his lover and his world, but what price is he willing to pay? Death at hands of the woman he loves?
