Sometimes, it's the moment that you achieve your dream when the real trouble starts. Ever since the day Vesper became a Lord, he's been forced to dodge an endless rain of troubles. It's not as simple as merely finding a way to feed and pay his own Family, oh no. The real trouble is trying to find a way to co-operate with the other vampire lords, each with hundreds of years of experience and no patience for a bold young upstart with his own ideas of how things should be done.
Luckily for him, the world itself is crying out for the Inanité family, a neutral middle ground who are neither good nor evil. In a time of danger and uncertainty, the whole vampire community is looking to them for guidance. Rumors swirl that there are terrible enemies poised to attack all the vampire clans, armed with some kind of weapon that will poison the kindred bloodlines and wipe them out once and for all.
The final hand is about to be dealt, and nothing will ever be the same again.
