SummaryAdd a Summary
The D'Artigo sisters, Camille, Delilah, and Menolly, are half-Fae, half-human operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency (O.I.A.) Camille is a Witch. Delilah is a Changeling Kitten/Panther Death Maiden. Menolly is a Vampire who chooses to keep a strong grip on her ethics. Though she is a predator, Menolly never harms the innocent and is actively helping to recruit other vampires to pledge the same.
When humans begin to go missing, then turn up as newly born vampires, it is up to the sisters and their battle weary friends to pull themselves together and confront the newest emerging threats. The one responsible for the newly risen is Dredge. Dredge is known as the scourge of the land. It was Dredge who tortured Menolly before turning her into a night walker. Menolly lives (no pun intended) for the night she will finally catches and stake the vile monster that turned her.
Good news is that the elfin queen has hired a mercenary bounty hunter, Rozurial "Roz", to help them. Roz is not just another merc though; he is an incubus who, at the young age of seven, saw Dredge slaughter his family. There is no doubt that Roz will do anything and everything within his power to help them defeat Dredge. Bad news is that Dredge has kidnapped a human female friend of the sisters'. Unless they can locate her - FAST - Menolly knows exactly what her evil sire will do.
