A Nerteru—a hunter, or a huntress—is born every thousand years to lead the Wariors of Light as they fight against the Dark Realms. Damali Richards is the millennium Neteru, the one who will play a pivotal role in the Final War. The Warriors of Light have been waiting for her and the Dark Realms will do anything to posses or destroy her. What they do not take into account is the man who will love her.
Damali has been to Hell and back—literally—and she is not eager to repeat the trip. A vampire civil war has been averted, but there were casualties, and she believes that Carlos Rivera, her former lover turned master vampire, is one of them. His death has not only shaken her emotions, but has weakened her powers as well. Then Damali gets word of horrific killings in Brazil. The vampire civil war left a small door to Hell open, and new and dangerous foes have risen from the Dark Realms. The leader, a deadly female, is set on a path of destruction, but her blood lust hides a nefarious plan, and the resurrected Carlos Rivera is at the heart of it. However, Damali is not about to lose her man a second time, so she plans to send this leader right back to the hell she came from—no matter who stands in her way.
