Shayne Leighton's stunning New Adult debut is a fiercely imaginative, multilayered dark fantasy where Alice In Wonderland meets Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire in a story about a girl caught between two societies . . . two magic sides . . . and two loves.
Charlotte is the only mortal in a society of beasts and nightmarish things. By night, she hunts other humans to satiate her Vampire guardian. By day, she struggles to find her place of belonging among the magic and monsters.
But when war conflicts her peaceful, however odd little life, she must fight for love and survival the only way she knows how...
...with her blood.
"Is that why you put her in with the monsters?" Aiden mumbled. "Because you believe she is one?"
"Apprentice... matters of the heart are complicated. They drive a perfectly happy man to madness."
Charlotte had the feeling Evangeline was up to something. Guilt lived in every move she made. It was so tangible, it might as well have been a dagger in her hand.
And Valek? Valek was Caesar.
The moon retreated to the underbelly of the earth, dawn's army of light invading over the horizon. I would be dying soon. Once more, it was time for me to return home--to my prison of supernatural things to which I was condemned.
