Matheus believes that getting Quin back will help him deal with the pressures of a vampiric war, but his hopes crumble after his soulmate fails to remember him.
The tattered remnant of their mystical connection appears to drive Quin's erratic suicidal behavior, threatening their bond and their very existence. While Matheus pines for his former love, a hurt and betrayed Alastair must watch the man he loves chase another. Feeling inadequate as a leader, Matheus searches for a way to make Quin remember him, no matter the cost.
With Apollonia is closing in on their home, he must act soon. And to make matters worse, his mortal - and pregnant - sister begrudgingly sets aside her contempt for vampires to ask his help to protect her unborn child from their insane father.
Terrified of losing Quin for good and of facing his father, Matheus faces a damning choice: kill the man he loves or attempt an untested ritual that might destroy them both.
