Alexander Kain has been through hell. For centuries, torture, bloodshed, war and living in the shadow of a powerful father haunted his every dream. Born to die in the place of another due to an ancient pact, Kain has resigned himself to isolation to wait for death's sweet embrace. Everything changes when a young woman - a hybrid; both vampire and lycan - arrives beaten and left for dead at his doorstep. He couldn't have known that saving her would lead him down a twisting, winding road. One filled with old rivals longing to settle a score, former lovers of a bygone, taboo past or an unlikely alliance with the monsters he fought during centuries of war. Will Tala’s love be enough to heal centuries of war and the torture set upon him by a dark god?
