Betrayed by his brother and imprisoned in his sister's dungeon, Olivier d'Arjou isn't about to let a few chains get in his way. A vampire for six hundred years and a plague on his family for longer, he has no reason to hold back from wiping out the last of his family members and anyone who gets in his way. But first, he'll need to break free.
When Oberon North, witch and survivor of one of Olivier's most heinous crimes, comes seeking vengeance, it should be child's play to bend the witch to his will. But Oberon comes with more power and resilience than Olivier expects and forces him to confront truths he'd rather avoid.
But Olivier's inner conflict must take a backseat when he learns of his sister Aurelia's plan to save the world from the demon Xadrak. A battle generations in the making, to succeed requires the ultimate sacrifice from both Olivier and his brother Thierry – and the last chance Olivier has to reclaim his humanity and a future he never thought possible.
No–one gets to choose who they spend eternity with.
Aurelia d'Arjou has vampires for brothers, but it is as a witch that she comes into her own power, keeping balance and control, using her strength to mitigate the death and pain that her brothers bring. When she is forced to take on the centuries long task of keeping the world safe from the brutal demon that wore her father's skin, duty dominates her life. But rare happiness comes in the form of a beguiling, flame–haired oracle who makes the perfect companion...but for one thing.
Hame doesn't want to be an oracle, but when a demon destroys the closest thing to a father he has, he has little choice but to aid Aurelia with his visions. Unable to love her as she would wish, their centuries–old friendship comes under attack when a handsome Welsh witch enters his life – and his heart.
As treachery and betrayal push Hame to choose between his closest friend and his lover, it becomes clear that when it comes to war, love doesn't always conquer all, and happy endings are never guaranteed.
