You never know how strong you are until something makes you choose between humanity, and the beast.
As Claire descended deep into the ancient tomb; laying to rest the bodies of the fallen, she wondered if time healed all wounds, would an eternity be long enough? Still recovering from a brutal attack that nearly killed her, she refused to let evil win. Pain and destruction glared at her everywhere she went. Nothing and no one would ever be safe until Baal was not only defeated, but destroyed. Fueled by her thirst for revenge, she traveled with her father to the ‘old world’, seeking the aide of a long forgotten ally. Will their quest for help lead to their salvation, or is it only the first step in their annihilation?
The day that Claire was chosen to join the vampire royal family feels like a lifetime ago. Since then, she’s discovered secrets she never knew existed and had to fight for her life multiple times. With more than one enemy hunting her down, she doesn’t know where to turn, but her desire to fight for those she loves overshadows any fears she might have.
Still recovering after the brutal assault of her greatest enemy, Claire knows there is only one way to win, but will everyone agree to it? All she wants is the blood shed to be over, and get the chance to live the life she’s always wanted. She’s finally found her family, has the greatest friends any princess could ask for, and believes she’s falling in love for the first time; but will all of that be ripped away when her worst nightmares come to life?
He’s dedicated his life to protecting Claire, but is it enough? Danger is lurking around every corner and he fears letting her out of his sight for even a minute. With the bond between them growing, Arrick’s drive to keep her safe only gets stronger and so do his feelings for her.
Determined to give Claire the life she’s always dreamed of, Arrick is willing to do whatever it takes, even if that means taking on Baal himself.
Despite everything that has happened, Robin has always managed to stay positive whatever the situation, but will the weight of all the evil around her finally takes its toll?
Robin’s strength is tested in the worst way possible, but with her friends by her side she knows she can make it through, even though the odds are against her.
Ever since his brother died, Dmitry just hasn’t been the same. It doesn’t help that his relationship with Claire ended almost as quickly as it began, and now he has to see her with Arrick. Yet, a special someone seems to be cracking his hard exterior; though he’s not quite ready to admit it.
Permanently scarred after the attack on the palace, Dmitry is just as different on the outside as he is on the inside. Still, he’s determined to fight for what’s right and regain some of the respect his family lost after his brother’s betrayal.
There’s more to Ana than a vengeful, murderous vampire; she’s also hateful and blood-thirsty. When her initial plan to kill Claire failed; resulting in the death of her mate, Luka, she went bat-shit crazy.
Spending her time haunting Claire’s every step, she’s biding her time till the perfect moment to strike presents itself. Ana has one more trick up her sleeve that no one sees coming. Will she finally kill Claire, or will she be defeated once again?
At first glance, Ronon is nothing more than a handsome face with a cocky disposition. Claire hates to admit it, but she and Ronon have more in common than anyone she’s ever met.
Ronon’s thirst for revenge is strong, and so is his desire to get Claire to embrace the untapped power inside her. The two of them together can make for one deadly combination, but can Claire look past his barbaric nature to see what’s hiding beneath the surface?
