The devastating conclusion to "The Mercian Trilogy", as the vampire's destiny is finally revealed. 'I am pestilence and plague, war and turmoil. I am what you fear when the night is dark, I am the shiver you feel in your spine when you least expect it. I am the dreams from which you awake full of dread. I am the dreams from which one day you fear you will never wake at all.'

As the barriers to the underworld fall around him, only one thing is clear - the choices will not be easy for Will, or for Eloise, in a battle that not everyone can survive, as destiny collides with a sorcerer's dark arts.
