The King has arrived in Boston.
Lexington confessed to a crime he didn't commit to save Elle's life. Now she's summoned the one and only person who can spare him, but it comes at a dangerous price: confessing every one of her secrets to the King. That she is the one who has been curing the Bitten, and who the true father of her unborn child is.
Trying to do good comes with unforeseen consequences - a cured Bitten, one who should have just walked away, and tried to forget, wants revenge. The cycle must stop, and the only way to do it is to expose all vampires to the world.
The decree has been made, the fate of Charles Allaway is sealed; he will die. But first, they have to find him. No more hiding, Elle is ready to take her fate and that of her child, into her own hands.
