In 1942, Chekist Captain Nikita Baskin led his elite group of Soviet Secret Police into the wilds of Siberia on a mission to retrieve a "volunteer." Sasha Kashnikov, Tomsk University student and trapper's son, became a werewolf, an intended weapon against the Nazis. But in truth, he was meant to be the Familiar of the vampire Rasputin. In a clearing north of Stalingrad, amid blood-stained snow, Rasputin died, the pack burned, and Nikita and Sasha set off toward eternity together, bound by tragedy, and trust, and a tenderness neither would name. In modern day New York, their pack of two has grown to include two detectives, an artist, and the former tsarevich of Russia. And after what occurred in Virginia, Nikita and Sasha have reached a breaking point. Sasha, an unusually strong alpha wolf, remains unbound, and the forces on all sides of the looming war will want a chance to claim him - to make him a weapon again. All Nik has ever wanted to do was protect his precious Sashka. And all Sasha wants is to be more than a friend and little brother to the man - the vampire - he loves most. Book four of the Sons of Rome series is all about pack. About lovers, and friends, and found family. About learning how to be honest, and to let go of guilt, and about finding the courage to love without reservation. There's a Wallachian prince in town, enemies old and new, and a world to save. But first, Nikita has a confession to make. One that's been seventy-seven years in the making.
