Succumbing to Alakay's master vampire power, Ari becomes his unwilling servant. Luckily, she isn't alone in the lair he's chosen to lurk in. She makes an unlikely friend who could turn out to be beneficial to her in the long run. All she has to do is pretend she isn't an evil, soulless monster now. How hard could that be?
The Hunter Elite and Jake Everett desperately search for a way to retrieve Ari's soul. When a solution is presented to them, Jake must make a deal that will be filled with peril. If they wish to succeed, they'll need Ari's cooperation to accomplish it. Now that she's become a full vampire, they all know it won't be easy to get her to see reason.
The team will need to split up as they all tackle their separate tasks. They will face dangerous foes and some will travel to realms they'd never expected, or wanted to visit. They will become allies with creatures they are normally enemies with to serve a common goal, but their alliance will be shaky.
Ari finally embarks on the mysterious task to retrieve a relic from somewhere no one has ever returned from before. It will be her most hazardous mission so far and even with her magical abilities, she isn't sure she'll succeed. The worst part is that she won't be going alone. She'll have company she would rather see dead than to be partnered with.
