This time Wyr Sentinel Rune Ainissesthal takes center stage as the author again wields her magic touch. With a perfect blend of romance, action and drama, Harrison continues to prove she is fast becoming a name synonymous with excellence!
In order to save his friend Tiago’s life, Rune agreed to a dangerous bargain with vampyre queen and sorceress Carling Severan. Rune promised to do a favor of Carling’s choosing, so he has left NYC to fly to San Francisco. What Rune learns is that Carling’s power has become erratic and that she is dying of a disease that strikes ancient vampyres. Knowing what awaits her, Carling has invested a lot of time trying to find a cure, but she never expects the key to her quest to come from a sexy and arrogant Wyr. As Carling and Rune make a desperate and dangerous attempt to save Carling, they discover they are not only fighting a disease, but also a vampyre power play. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Oct., 336 pp., $7.99)
