Loss, sacrifice and darkness continue to be major themes as one of Ward's most damaged heroes gets his story.
Sex and violence make this tale of
emotional redemption unusually
graphic and powerful. Ward pulls
no punches and delivers an extraordinary paranormal drama.
Dr. Jane Whitcomb is a trauma surgeon on duty the night a dying V is brought in. Jane's skill and determination save him, entangling her in a dark world when V insists that she be taken from the hospital with them. Why now, when his predestined fate is revealed, does V finally meet the woman who touches his heart?
