Teenage vampire Tessa finds herself waging war against her own kind in order to protect those she loves and save people who can't save themselves…
Beaten down by constant attacks, Tessa is subsisting on little more than reserves that won't help her survive forever. Her only consolation is that she's never alone. Her help comes from those still outside, fighting the battle to save the world, as well as inside herself.
Kidnapped and injured, Cody struggles to find a way to escape and reunite himself with the girl whose connection to his heart, mind and soul grows continuously. Even as he dreams of sharing a life with Tessa, he knows the chances of survival are slim. One way or the other, the crux of his being has become the fact that he can't live without her.
Even at the risk of endangering his own life – yet again, human Jared refuses to leave his father and friends to their fate. This time, he has allies fighting alongside him. But are they who he thinks they are, or will trusting them prove to be the worst mistake he's ever made?
Uniting humans and good and bad factions of vampires, the war rages on in a deathmatch where only the fittest survive.
