Before there was Micah, there was Rysk, and a forbidden love that started a war.
Micah Black is a vampire in trouble. He already lost one mate and barely survived her passing. Now, he's about to lose another, and this time it could kill him. Except he's not entirely convinced he actually mated Jackson. Too many questions surround their relationship.
Then there's Scarlet, the mysterious exotic dancer Micah saw perform for the first time the night he and Jackson met. Micah wishes for one night with Scarlet, which is not the way a mated male is supposed to behave, but as Jackson slips further away, Micah can’t stop thinking about her. If only he had more time, he could explore his feelings, but Micah knows time is one luxury he doesn't have.
In this prequel to the award-winning All the King's Men Series, not only do readers learn what started the war between the vampires and drecks, but what occurred in the weeks leading up to the novel, Rise of the Fallen, which was the first in this exciting paranormal series. In Rise of the Fallen, you met Micah and the rest of the alpha males of AKM. Now, see how the pieces aligned to set Micah on his path of self-destruction and eventual resurrection in the story that readers fell in love with.
