Made vampire through violent attack, Jason’s ordeal isn’t over. His unintentional maker despises him, and the human brother he can’t let go is in danger.
When attacked by an immoral and sadistic vampire, Jason draws the vampire’s blood with a bite. He survives the encounter, but not as a human. Jason returns home, and seeks solace in his brother Nathan. The brothers find a woman who introduces Jason to the king—first informing them that Jason made a horrible mistake telling Nathan he’d become a vampire; that isn’t allowed.
Something helps Jason stay alive in what follows. He has a rare gift, and can see moments in people’s lives. Jason’s fate is in the vampire king’s hands, and even if everything goes well, it will be difficult because he has decided to stay away from his brother until it is safe. As the king finds Jason and his ability intriguing, Jason is thrust into a world of vampire politics, where his unintentional maker vows to be the end of him, the vampire nobles are going to war, and Jason realizes the king’s true motive for letting him live. In the midst of this, the bigger issue becomes Nathan, who is still human and knows of things he shouldn’t. How does Jason protect and hold on to a brother, when he has left humanity behind?
