For the soldiers of SAINT, going to war is about more than a struggle for land or power: It’s a fight between good and evil. Theirs is a life spent on the fringes of a society oblivious to the horrors of the darkness. With no family apart from their brothers and sisters borne of battle, their bonds are as indestructible as the blood ties they left behind. On the night of the Ritz’ven Massacre, Peter Stone lost everything. The centuries’ old spell should have granted the vampires in his Clan immunity from every weakness; sunlight, silver, and holy items. Instead it left him cursed to an eternity alone. Aidan James has seen monsters. He was raised by one. Trying to survive is all he can manage for himself most days, but for the last of his family, for Cote, he cannot surrender. Little does he know, survival is about to get much more difficult for them both. And for everyone else around them.
