Shauna's search for infamous vampire hunter, Henry the Inquisitor, was cut short by a summons by the first vampire. What secrets will she uncover in the presence of such ominous power? Once she uncovers secrets about her own past that she could never have imagined, she is sent back to Europe to finish the hunt for the hunters. This time she will have help from vampires of similar power to her own. And she'll have the usual help of her mentor and best friend, Elizabeth Bathory. But her favorite source of blood is now a vampire as well, so Shauna needs to find other ways to feed and she's still uncomfortable drinking from strangers. Her travels take her to the darkest, vilest, part of the vampire underworld, testing her morality and how far she's willing to go to embrace the darkness. Even with all the help in the world, she is still uncertain what she'll uncover or if her friends will be enough to keep her from being killed permanently.
