A centuries-old feud has pitted Ba'Kal--shifters—against Vam'kir--vampires. Quinn has suffered the pain of the ongoing contention in ways no man ever should. Once the respected son of the Vam'kir king, his life was forever altered the day his father realized a truth of which even Quinn was unaware.
As the Ba'Kal ruler, it is up to Manning to seek justice for the vicious attacks the Vam'kir have perpetrated against his kind, but his very beliefs are called into question when he discovers his mate is also his enemy. To keep Quinn safe, he must learn to trust in the impossible--that love might exist beyond boundaries, for failure means the end of his future and the rest of his race.
