In a city where monsters lurk in the shadows, an unlikely hero embraces her inner darkness in order to save the light.
Since the night of Aviva’s murder she’s been forced to accept a new reality—burned by sunlight, feeding on the blood of the living, searching for her place in a dark world she didn’t believe existed until she awoke as a vampire. She’s barely reached an uneasy peace with her monstrous new nature when rogue vampires arrive in her clan’s territory, leaving a trail of fresh corpses in their wake.
As the bodies pile up Aviva discovers a dark gift: the ability to see impressions left behind by these tortured souls at the time of their murders. It’s a useful talent, but one that could threaten her position in the clan. Connection to the living is a weakness, and the heartless predators who surround her won’t tolerate anything less than soulless perfection among their ranks.
Honing her abilities means embracing the darkness she’s fought against for so long, and keeping them a secret won’t be easy. But this uncertain new vampire with shameful gifts may be the only one able to stand against a pack of ruthless killers and keep them from exposing her shadowy world to unimaginable danger.
