When Patrick is murdered, Katelina is left with questions. Jorick, one of his so-called friends, has dark answers: Patrick betrayed a coven of vampires; vampires that may now be after Katelina.
Though it sounds crazy, proof appears in a flash of fangs. Katelina and Jorick only just escape to a secret mansion. There, she discovers horror in the halls and learns the truth about her protector. Blood and destruction follow, leaving scars Katelina may never heal from.
The disturbing opener to the Amaranthine series pulls Katelina into darkness that tastes like fear and smells like blood, a world where night is eternal and vampires don’t sparkle.
BONUS: Includes the first chapter of Legacy of Ghosts.
