One fledgling vampire. One nearly powerless witch. Two underdogs in society. Will a chance encounter between two should-be enemies lead to anything but violence?
Until three weeks ago, Dorian was a human - one of those subjugated by the supernatural beings who now rule the world. He spent 10 years struggling to survive, but now that he's been turned, he needs to learn how to live. Problem is, there's a lot to learn but not much time to learn it in. Loneliness is far from the only problem, but it seems to be the most pressing.
Supernatural or not, Emery doesn't have a fancy family name to back up his standing in society. The most memorable thing about him is his red hair, not his magic, and he's had to throw in with those whose price for protection isn't low. Even though he'd never admit he's lonely, he's fascinated enough by his run-in with a brand-new vampire to not dismiss him despite the tensions between their races.
Can they cure their loneliness with one another, or will society prevent them from doing anything but wonder what might have been?
Asymmetry, Spoiled* and Anticipation*, the Need Trilogy, the Tamed & Trained Trilogy**, the Fate of the Fallen series, and Gifts can all be read separately from each other. Though they are all set in the same universe and there is occasional crossover, the timeline is ambiguous, and there are minimal spoilers across the books.
