Christian Carfax wants to be immortal.
Juliana Celeste, a powerful but embittered French vampire, has the gift he needs.
The exchange should be easy enough: his blood relinquished for eternal life.
There’s only one problem.
For over seventy years, Juliana has endured the Sisyphean burden of The Thirst, while watching as everyone and everything she loves has been lost to her. Now, the time has come to make her parents, the vampires Callisto and Constantine, pay for their theft by ridding the world of them and the scourge of their kin, the Shroudeaters. But, no plan ever evolves as intended and, as the competing desires of Juliana and Christian collide, they will sacrifice lives, loves, and loyalties to gain the ultimate prize.
