Everything changed when the vampires arrived.
I’m starving, alone in a dark cave, and grieving those who I lost.
But I’m not giving up just yet. I’m a fighter, a survivor. A little fear won’t get in my way.
A vampire will, though. And he chooses the worst time to show himself.
Only he doesn’t want blood… He wants something even more sacred. Something I’m not willing to give away.
I am dhampir, and I’ve been lost to the bloodlust like many of my people.
Yet I awaken from the haze, only to find myself in a strange world, drinking from even stranger beings.
When I catch her scent, everything changes. The Calling awakens deep within, and I know she is my mate. My fated.
But she is different. She is human, native to this land, and in dire trouble. A mysterious enemy leads a horde of maddened dhampirs straight to her dwelling, ready to drink her dry.
It is my duty to protect her. I’ll fight to the death if I must.
And when the time is right, I will claim her as mine.
