Nachari Silivasi is a bright light in a dark world. As the youngest vampire in a family of warriors, he has studied magic for 400 years and acquired a rare mastery of the universe around him. He is beloved by his family, legendary for his good looks, and known for his uncommon valor. Unfortunately, he has just made the ultimate sacrifice - he has traded his immortal life for the life of the Vampyr King.
Deanna Dubois is as talented as she is independent, but she has developed a strange and terrifying habit: night after night, day after day, she sketches one horrifying scene after another - the body of a gorgeous male being tortured in hell by demons. Disturbed by her ever-growing obsession, she sets out to Dark Moon Vale to uncover the truth - only to find a web of danger, destruction, and deceit.
Separated by space and time, yet drawn together by fate, Nachari and Deanna find themselves in an epic battle against evil. Nachari is forced to forge a path in a world of shadows, where torture and lust rule the night; while Deanna struggles to decide between two polar opposites - to flee from the truth or trade her mortal soul for the possibility of a stranger's salvation.
The stakes could not be higher.
The enemy could not be more lethal.
And the only way to reach the light is to, first, enter the Blood Shadows.
