A battle is brewing in the underworld, and at the center of it all is Damali Richards, spoken word artist and vampire huntress. But she is not just any huntress, she is the millennium Neteru, a woman so powerful that the vampire world is about to start a war—one that threatens to invade her own turf, the streets—in order to possess her.

Fallon Nuit, a rogue vampire—indeed, one of the most powerful Damali has ever encountered—has allied himself with the deadly Amanthra demons in order to claim her. But the Vampire Council has plans for Fallon as well. And now an unlikely variable has entered the equation: an ex-lover-turned-vampire with an agenda of his own. . . . Damali must risk trusting him once more if they are to survive.
