Rhiannon is a female serial killer that preys upon the men she attracts. After meeting a vampire, she is transformed. She was insane before her transformation, but with her new abilities, her bloodlust grows. The media coverage of her capture, escape and rampage alerts the people of America to the reality of Vampires. Anyone resembling a vampire is caught and tortured, and eventually killed. Every moment is captured by the media and the United States enters a new dark age. In retaliation, Vampires form armies that attack cities, demented individuals offer themselves to the vampire hordes. The dead must be burned immediately or the flaming corpses get up and attack in the initial bloodlust that possesses the newly reborn. Chaos reigns in the land that millions call home, now in The Shadow of Rhiannon.
