On a hostile, disaster-ridden planet ravaged by a virus, humans and vampires fight for survival. But staying alive might be easier said than done in a world where the dead don’t stay dead.
Living among the devastation is Abby Rose, a member of the Vanguard, doing her best to protect herself and those around her between waiting tables at a local motel bar and grill. But things are about to take a turn for the worse.
When a town full of people are found viciously murdered close to her home, Abby and her team find themselves fighting alongside members of the Vampire Increment Guard. Suddenly, Abby must form an alliance with the mysterious race she never expected she’d work with—and their partnership becomes crucial to their survival as they join in the fight together.
As teammates are savagely killed, truths uncovered, and devastating secrets revealed, Abby finds herself tangled in a shocking web of lies. As she tries to navigate her world where danger lurks around every corner, she must also decide if her steamy romance with ally Ethan Sterling is worth pursuing. After all, in a world where loss is prevalent and pain is second nature, can Abby stand to open herself up to the possibility of love or will she risk everything only for heartbreak?
