Entrusted to her care, Elisa has fought to protect a handful of vampire fledglings horrifically turned as children. Then, one terrible night, their uncontrolled savagery takes more from her than she thinks she can bear.
The vampire mistress she serves, Lady Daniela, is going to put them down, a ruthless act of mercy. But Elisa begs her not to do that. For what was lost that night to mean something, the fledglings must be given one more chance.
His name is Malachi, a Native American vampire who is a legend for his work rehabilitating feline predators. With his primal understanding of the rules of survival, he is the fledglings’ last hope—and the key to keeping Elisa from following them over the edge if they are past help.
