Rashel Jordan lost her mother to a golden-eyed vampire at the age of five — and just barely saved herself by her wits. She’s grown up to the age of seventeen as a vampire hunter — the best. But when a group of hunters captures Quinn and decides to torture him, Rashel feels something in her soul twist.
Left alone with Quinn, she goes along with her mad impulse and allows him to escape. But Quinn, a vampire with one of the darkest reputations in the Night World warns her not to expect him to return the favor.
Nevertheless, when Rashel gets herself chosen for a bloodfeast and finds that Quinn is in charge of gathering girls for the dark ceremony! Enemies — and soulmates — what will happen during their final fight?
