To the outside world Lily Ayres is the privileged daughter of an old moneyed family. She is young, beautiful, and a talented horsewoman. All of which are enviably qualities, but few know that beneath this thin veneer of societal perfection lies a deeply troubled young woman.
For Lily rarely speaks and is incapable of normal, human interaction. Unable to understand why she is this way, she further retreats inside herself, until memories and suppressed emotions begin to bubble to the surface.
Murder, revelations of her family’s hidden purpose and dark secrets are revealed as she is thrust into the supernatural world of Krieger Barnes, Vampire King of North America.
Merlin turned away from Lily’s body, shaking his head. “The price is too high.”
Merlin was a powerful sorcerer, but he still respected the laws of nature. Krieger knew he was asking Merlin to use dark magic, something the sorcerer had turned his back on years ago.
“I command you.”
Merlin glared at him.
“Do it,” Krieger urged. “For me.”
“So be it.” Angrily, Merlin lifted up his arms. Energy crackled through the room, the fire leapt up, threatening to escape the confines of the brickwork. Tiny particles in the air collided and combined to create a vortex of matter above her. Lily’s body lifted and hovered inches above the sofa. Her long hair floated out and around her face.
Krieger watched as sweat seeped through and drenched Merlin’s clothes. The room felt heavy and weighted down with the stench of ozone. Merlin began to chant, his body swaying with the effort of the spell he was weaving. With an audible pop, Lily fell back onto the sofa.
Merlin looked bewildered. “She’s fighting me, or–” He moved closer to her body. “Her essence is too strong. She’s something I’ve never encountered before. Her body resists my magic.”
“Then force her to accept it!” Krieger knew with each second Lily was drifting further away.
Krieger took a step back. “My blood.”
“It is a high price to pay.”
