These people, the Sumerians, influenced not only all the other civilizations that arose in Mesopotamia but virtually every other human society that followed. Without the Sumerians, the world today would be a very different place. However, although we know a great deal about these people, there are fundamental mysteries about the Sumerians that have still not been solved by historians or archaeologists.
I was their payment on a debt...and they were my salvation. My vampires dragged me from the river and brought me back to life, and in turn I saved the one man who gave his life for me...my bodyguard.

I vowed revenge on those who tried to destroy us. I’ll make them pay with five merciless Immortals at my side. Because to them, I’m not a possession...to them I am forever.
He captured my wrist, smooth black leather against my skin. The kiss was hungry, and urgent. His hard chest pressed me against the bricks and before I knew it, my hand rising to meet the wall. He had me. Gloved hand pinning my wrists above me. His finger at my temple. And his lips taking...taking...taking. The Hidden, we call them. Four Vampires who run this city west of the river. And my family runs the east.

My vampires raced the darkness to save me from the light. I fought Corvina’s sire. Fought the wolves and the cold. But there’s one thing I can’t fight any longer. The truth of who I am. With teeth and savagery, I face down death itself. Nothing can take me from them...not now.
Their touch still burns my skin. The memory of their lips as vivid as a summer squall...when darkness swallows me. Hands over my mouth. I’m taken by a coven of deadly vampires. Ones who will seek revenge on those I love. But they aren’t the only beasts at my door. Wolves come crashing through the walls and a new enemy rises. One that shakes me to my core. My enemy is here, one I’ve known forever. And this time he’s not letting me go.
The Sinful are my enemy. But are they also my protectors? I can’t get them out of my head. Or the things they want to do with me. My past is dragged to the surface. But it’s a past I don’t know. Someone else’s memories invade me. The answers lie in the half-truths Arkyn whispers. "I’ll take care of you," Arkyn whispers as he kisses me. I want to lose myself in them. But fate, it seems, has other ideas.
They’re sinful. Beautiful. Deadly. And more dangerous than the wolves who hunt us in the woods. Three Vampires rule our world. And now I find myself in their clutches. Abducted in the dead of night, I’m taken to a market where 11 others like me are paraded in front of the Sinful. The Vampires want the perfect companion. The one mortal who’ll not only sit beside them on the throne...but who’ll occupy their bed. We’re to be judged, challenged...and selected one by one to continue the hunt. They’ll punish us. They’ll seduce us.

2019. The year certainly made its mark on the world. It also made for a bounty of good horror stories of the extreme kind, the best of which the tales herein serve to illustrate. 2019 was the year Year's Best Hardcore Horror went global. Not by design but because the stories inside just happened to have been written by authors hailing from various parts of the globe. From Australia by way of South Africa, to Italy, Scotland, Norway, Taiwan, North America and India - the common denominator being that their tales come from darkest regions of imagination.
The dance haunts me. The music, the seduction. The sex. I’m like an addict, searching for the Sinful in dark corners, remembering the way their moon-kissed skin glowed under my touch. But I came here for a reason. I want retribution for my murdered family...but more than that...I’m searching for salvation to find a way out of this torture. I’m falling to my knees, desperate to find a way out from under their clutches. I shouldn’t be tangling my fingers in Cassian’s hair. I should be burying a knife in his heart. Kill or escape, the words haunt me. I want this over.

The blinding light of heaven is no salvation. Its white walls, my prison...its gate, the entrance to my cell. But I don’t belong here. I never have. Four archangels took me from my bed at the Convent of Heavenly Christos. They chained my hands and feet and carried me on broad backs, with mammoth wings beating the air into submission. They brought me here, because of a secret I cannot remember. A secret so powerful it’ll start a war between heaven and hell.
How do you fight for a mortal's damned soul? With teeth and claws. With wings and hate. With brass knuckles coated with demon blood. And that's exactly what my archangel intends to do. I never wanted this bloodline...never wanted to belong to both the darkness and the light. I’ll renounce Lucifer’s hold over me, and I’ll fight.
