When a trio of weanling Vampire Lords target their wilderness settlement, its members must fight to survive until help arrives.
In a world where the power of humans and the power of the vampire race exist in precarious balance, Lucan and his family help to carve swaths through the forest, disrupting the Vampire's ability to travel in daylight. Most of the members of their wilderness settlement are Empowered, but when three Vampire Lords attack in unison, even they are forced to flee into the woods.
Help, being fetched by Lucan's mother, is at least four days away. They must somehow survive, on the run, cut off from their homes and shelter, while being constantly hunted, until Lucan's grandparents arrive. It would help if one of the Vampire Lords did not possess such staggering psychic power. It would help if that vampire's behavior was not so strange. It would help if Aefre had not been hiding the nature of her own empowerment.
It is an era of night for the human race. But those whose souls are sparks will survive...until one of them can become a flame.
