Blood runs soul-deep. Cormac hasn’t been the same since the night the High Moon Pack was attacked.

Un mago disperato e un vampiro disilluso e amareggiato possono trovare il modo di costruire un’alleanza che possa salvare il loro mondo?

In un mondo scosso da una guerra combattuta a colpi di magia, i vampiri sono considerati meno che umani, le tipiche creature della notte che, come nelle leggende, danno la caccia agli uomini. Ma all’inasprirsi dei combattimenti, i maghi capiscono di aver bisogno di un vantaggio che volga gli eventi in loro favore: la forza che i vampiri possono dare loro nella lotta contro i maghi oscuri, i quali cercano di distruggere la vita così come la conoscono.

Con una mossa azzardata, ma indice di buona volontà, i maghi chiedono al capo dei vampiri di incontrali, per perorare la loro causa. Un uomo disperato, Alain Maigner, e un vampiro amareggiato e disilluso, Orlando St. Clair, si incontrano a Parigi, e il destino del mondo dipenderà dalle loro decisioni: i vampiri si uniranno alla causa e formeranno un’alleanza con i maghi per vincere la guerra?

When Brandon Roland’s parents kicked him out for being gay, he turned to prostitution to get by—something that almost cost him his life when he was attacked by strangers. Bran was saved by a vampire named Heath, and during their year together, Bran’s life was good—but then Heath sent him packing for reasons unknown.

That was twelve years ago, and Bran’s come a long way since then. He has an education, a job as a social worker at a vampire/human youth shelter, friends, and a tattoo he adds to annually to commemorate another year without the love of his life.

The trouble with being a very old vampire is that the older you are, the less you feel. Heath is over nine hundred—he was sure he'd never experience emotion again, but he never counted on Bran. When Heath accidentally stumbles back into Bran’s life, it changes more than either man thought possible—and then history literally catches up with them and turns their lives inside out.

Mårten Larsson is one of the richest bloodsuckers ever, but his unlife isn’t exactly a flight in the park. There are some things money can’t buy—like an instruction manual on what to do when the vampire queen quits and leaves you in charge of Europe. Suddenly Mårten has to juggle politics, his royal wardrobe, and this newfangled thing called “e-mail.” And his German still sucks.

But hey, Mårten can handle it. After all, he (sort of) survived World War I, being married to two voraciously horny vampires (at the same time), and life as a sniper taking out the most dangerous vamps in history. A little responsibility should be no problem… right?
