At the tender age of twenty-seven, sword-wielding vampire Merit became the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, saw her Master fall and rise, and saved her best friend from self destruction. But this has to be her toughest fight yet…
The Chicago vampires fear that they’ve reached a dead end. Anti-vampire riots have been erupting all over town, instigated by a shadowy figure from the Siberian woods who has a personal axe to grind when it comes to bloodsuckers. And now drastic measures are called for.
As the chaos escalates, Homeland Security’s newly-created paranormal wing arrives to give Merit and Ethan much-needed back up. But the Battle of Chicago is just beginning. Humans are out of control. Vampires are out of their minds, and Merit is running out of time.
