The vampire queen has called for my death. I know I should run. But I can’t.
Everyone else thinks I should flee and find a safe place to hide. They don’t think I can take her on, and who can blame them? The vampire queen is over 1000 years old. She’s had centuries to grow stronger and learn how to fight. I’ve had a month. I’m brutally outclassed. Almost.
I possess one advantage if I can bring myself to use it; my dual heritage. There’s only one other like me on the planet, and at the height of his powers, he challenged the very gods themselves. It’s a double-edged sword, though, considering he went insane with bloodlust. But, it’s the only chance I have to end her ruthless reign and save not only myself but my mother.
Taking her throne won’t be easy, and I know better than to do it alone. First, I’ll have to convince Aaron that it’s the right move. There’s some history between him and her that he’ll have to overcome. I just hope that it won’t ruin the budding future I see between us. After all, what’s the point in going up against the darkness, if there’s no light at the end?
