Violet Johnstone is the unluckiest girl in the room; brought to a party as a human offering to the newest leader of the Sacramento Hunters, kidnapped by two men with the worst intentions, and facing a fate worse than death after unwittingly escaping one of the most powerful vampires in the country. A bad day doesn't even begin to describe the last 24 hours. At least, until Julian Descourt takes mercy on her when he finds her in the woods. Six hours away, locked in a house away from the gang hunting for her, and faced with either becoming one of the immortal, or a brainless zombie destined to serve. It's time for Violet to make her own choices, and face the consequences - even if that means facing her own demise.
