These are dangerous times on Etherya’s Earth… Miranda, princess of the Slayers and heir to the throne, has hated the Vampyres for a thousand years.
Since the Awakening, she has fought to protect her people choosing to be a warrior more than a royal. When a female Vampyre washes up on the shore of her compound’s riverbank, she seizes the moment to take the offensive.
Sathan, King of the Vampyres, distraught at his sister’s disappearance and captivity, agrees to travel with Miranda to resect the Blade of Pestilence, also hoping to change his people’s state of endless war. Although the woman hates him due to the constant raids on her compound for the Slayers’ life-giving blood, he can’t help but admire the stubborn and strong princess.
As their journey progresses, both begin to understand that they are aligned in their hatred of Crimeous, leader of the Deamons, as well as their hope for peace between the Slayers and Vampyres. Determined to fight their growing attraction, they forge a tentative truce. But old wounds run deep and trust is scarce. Their faith in each other must remain strong or all will be lost…
Absolutely one of the most interesting, well written, intriguing romance books that i’ve read in a long time. I’ve already preordered book 2. Quirky twists. Unexpected developments with surprisingly believable characters. Can’t believe that this is Rebecca’s first book! I await many more!!! – Judy H. Eubanks
I could not put this book down! The characters were relatable, interesting, and multifaceted. The relationships between them deliciously built towards exactly where I’d hoped they would go. It was a great beach read and I can’t wait for book 2! Looking forward to many more great stories from Hefner. – dragonlady
