Vivienne Neas' best-selling series, now bundled into a box set.
The shade a vampire has left in my family is still hunting me, making my life a restless chase.
It's not only my job; I have a personal vendetta to carry out against vampires. They are the reason my sister is in a wheelchair and our mother is gone. And I'm not a forgiving girl.
Vampires start integrating among humans, but even with laws adapting to the new society, many problems arise. I solve them. I kill problems.
In the span of less than two weeks I manage to turn my entire world upside down.
I have managed to start a new life as instructor at the Martial Arts Academy in Westham.
No more black leathers, no more silver bullets, only training clothes - or so I thought....
A young woman arrives at the academy. She wants to be taught to kill vampires, and she wants me to teach her. But she doesn't know I'm half vampire; she doesn't know about my past. This would change the peaceful life I just achieved.
In the middle of the night, I find Joel and my sister at my door: Our friend Carl is in jail in Fort Atkinson, accused of murdering a young vampire girl, and it's me who he wants to help him to get out clean.
I don't mix up with police - you don't if you have a past like mine. But this time, my cop student offers to help me in Carl's investigation, and I desperately need his help.
Two shadows in a dark alley: They look so alike they could easily be twins. I strain my senses, and I smell vampire. When I'm killing my mark, a deafening scream comes out of its mouth, so I wake up. I've been haunted far too long by this nightmare, and the job at the academy isn't helping me anymore.
There's a vampire with a long list of goons chasing after me, looking to avenge his brother's death.
I know this is no ordinary vampire: He's very powerful. His face has been haunting me every night; this time I'm scared, and I feel in real danger. I have a feeling this will be my time.
So I'm out on the street again, ready to fight, and this time, I'm the only one to blame.
