They met when Nate was hunting and found out Lexie was infected by the vampire curse. When the hunt went wrong and Lexie used blood magic to save Nate from certain death, she passed on the infection to him. For a time Lexie's magic has been able to keep them both partially human as they continue to protect ignorant humanity from the vampire threat, but that magic is now starting to fail.
There are legends that the ancient Avebury ritual, designed to destroy Morrigan of Leyland, the most powerful vampire ever known, may hold the key to the cure they need, but to perform it Nate and Lexie require the four relics from the original ritual. Enlisting the help of veteran hunter, Brian Hawker, who has his own reasons for finding the relics, they must search across continents before it is too late.
In their way are vampire nuns, a crystal cave, shape changers, a labyrinthine catacomb, mummified monks and even librarians. However, their greatest foe is Dahlia, undead sister of Morrigan, who will stop at nothing to retrieve the relics for herself and claim Morrigan's power.
If Dahlia reaches any of the relics before them, Nate and Lexie face a fate worse than death—losing their humanity forever.
That all changed the day he died.
He'd been clinically dead for ten minutes. At least, that's what the doctors told him when he woke up in intensive care. It had been a freak accident, they said. A school bus suddenly turned in front of his red convertible, smashing it to bits.
By all odds, that should have been it. John's injuries had been grave. His heart had stopped and been restarted. He'd flatlined. His brain showed no signs of activity. Only sheer stubbornness kept the doctors from pulling the plug. Then, days later, he suddenly, mysteriously woke up - confused, in pain, but very much alive.
At first, he didn't remember much of what had happened. But then, the dreams began ...
The accident itself, in vivid, second-by-second detail. The face of the woman who had been driving the bus - a face twisted with pure hatred.
The long hours in the trauma center, as he hovered over his own shattered body, watching the doctors desperately laboring to bring him back.
And the light - a faint but steadily growing glow at the end of a swirling vortex. A brilliant incandescence filled with joy, love, peace that beckoned him closer...
But there were other dreams as well...
A frightened, heartbroken boy from a desperately troubled family running for his life.
A pretty, red-haired woman whose life was crashing around her, tempted to end it all.
An embittered, broken man whose heart smoldered with despair, hatred, and murderous rage.
These lives were somehow intertwined with his own, in a way he did not fully understand.
With the visions, John Creed received a remarkable gift. He could share the pain of other souls, take their suffering and transform it into peace. But this same gift also opened him to darker forces. Forces which could shift the balance between good and evil for ages to come....
Exciting, suspenseful, moving, and inspirational PARTING THE VEIL is a powerful testament to faith, hope, and the triumphant human spirit.
