Kayson's greatest enemy, the hell hounds, thrive on Earth and hunt not only the fallen but the blood children created by their Master. After being chased and confronted by one of those very creatures, Kayson's life becomes complicated. He never expected to be rescued by a vampire named Sabrina. He also never expected to become her protector after she falls prey to a hound's deadly bite. With the threat of the hounds finding Kayson and the other fallen, Kayson is running out of time. The others are pushing him to leave Sabrina behind, but after all she's done for him, Kayson refuses to abandon her. But will his decision leave his friends vulnerable? Sabrina is conscious enough to sense the struggles that Kayson is facing. If he knew the torture she's been going through, she knows he would suffer even more. Sabrina silently fights the darkness that is seeping into her dreams, but when the pain becomes too much, Sabrina has to make a choice that may cost not only her life, but the lives of others.
