"For the extinction of the beasts that walk the night, we will give our life's blood and our lives. Such is the curse that we were born to. Such is the duty we swear to. Such are the lives we lead." Unknown to humans, Night Warriors hunt the night, saving them from vampire-like creatures called beasts. When Corwyn Hunter saves Anna from the mad elder Veriel, he is irresistibly drawn to her as mate, but there is more to Anna than there seems. Veriel has fixated on her, claiming Anna is his wife, a situation she is at a loss to explain. Is Veriel truly mad or does he have a claim on Anna and her unborn child? Whichever side ultimately claims Anna's child will rise the victor. It is a battle neither side intends to lose, no matter the cost. The warriors have avoided training a female for 1500 years, but the stone will not be denied. It is time for a change in the Warrior ranks.
