The Seats are long dead. And after more than two centuries, the vampire world is stable enough for Serenity to settle down into a quiet, happy life.
Until July 4th on the celebration of Independence Day. Centenary celebrations in Times Square broadcast the world over.
It should have been a joyous occasion, another in the long line of human milestones Serenity and her vampire family have witnessed. That is until a vampire chases a woman into the crowd and drains her dry on the summer’s day.
With the news of vampires spreading quickly across the globe, Serenity must stand up and tell the human race that they are not alone in the world. And when they react with force instead of open arms, she must lead the Keepers in the biggest decision her race has had to make.
From keeping the vampires in the shadows to being their protectors, the Keepers, and Serenity most of all, face the fight of their lives to keep the human race from slaughtering all vampires on sight. But with a war between the races on the line, one mistake can mean the difference between keeping everything Serenity has ever worked for and burning the world down around her.
