No soulmates. No love triangles. No sparkles.
Madison, WI. 1999. When vampire Gabriel Chapel decides to take on a
fledgling, he knows not just anyone will do. Newly-turned vampires kill at
least one person a night for the first decade or so-a fate most humans could
never adjust to.
For college student Amanda Bairns, nothing is more important than finally
taking control of her life. But when Gabriel forces her to drink his blood,
Amanda is pulled deeper and deeper into a supernatural underworld she never
knew existed, where mages have their fingers in local government,
shapeshifting faeries control infrastructure, and aether-rich ley lines
attract a host of creatures welcome and unwelcome.
With the vampire's blood coaxing her to become a murderer, Amanda has four
weeks to discover which means more: her freedom and humanity, or the power
Gabriel offers. But neither Gabriel nor Amanda realize Amanda is a pawn in a
much bigger contest-one which could have lethal consequences not only for
the two of them, but for the entire city. Contains violence, explicit sex.

About Mercy Loomis

Mercy Loomis grew up in a haunted house, and has had quite enough of ghosts for one lifetime, thank you. Though she now lives in a 150-year-old house, it is remarkably ghost-free. (That, or they're staying on the down-low. She doesn't care which.) She loves stories about the paranormal because monsters are scary, but less scary than real people. Or at least less depressing. See what she's up to and find links to her other work at
