When a grizzly murder threatens to change the paranormal balance of power-and bring an end to years of peace between humans and supernaturals-a new generation must fight for Chicago.
As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king.
When the assassination of an ambassador brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.
Return to Chicagoland. Meet the family . . .
In this spin-off from the Chicagoland Vampires series, all the supernaturals and humans of Chicago have been at peace for 20 years. It is no surprise when someone looking for more power decides to undermine the agreement, but Elisa Sullivan, daughter of vampire leaders, will fight to keep peace intact and save Chicago. Elisa moved to Paris to find her own way, but her job brings her back to her Chicago home, which is hosting peace talks among European leaders. Then, one representative is murdered and a shape-shifter is blamed. Elisa believes the suspect was framed in order to compromise the peace talks, and she teams up with her parents and friends, including Connor, a childhood companion whom she once found annoying but now has a crush on. She must also battle a literal inner monster that she doesn't want to let out. Fans of urban fantasy will find their new favorite heroine in quick-witted, tough Elisa.
