In the City, the Werewolves are restless.
Gabi is striving to get back to life as usual. Dealing with the aftermath of being kidnapped and tortured by Dantè, wrapping her head around being a Dhampir, and trying to figure out Julius’s unexpected attitude as he withdraws from her and becomes cool and distant. As if that isn’t enough to cope with, she receives disturbing news that someone she cares about has been dragged unwillingly into her world after a brutal and calculated Werewolf attack.
As new Werewolf attacks continue to plague the City, it becomes clear there will be no gentle reintroduction to Gabi's duties as Hunter for the Societas Malus Venatori. The supernatural Community desperately tries to regain control of the dangerous situation. The casualties keep mounting and tensions run high as the perpetrators manage to stay one step ahead of the Hunters and nothing seems to be going their way. No one suspects betrayal from within, until Gabi’s pets unmask a traitor. But the traitor isn’t the real threat and the war has only just begun.
This time their nemesis isn’t playing by any rules and no one is safe in this deadly, new game. Not even the Master Vampire of the City. As the undeniable chemistry between Gabi and Julius reignites, they realise the danger isn’t only to the human population of the City, but threatens to overwhelm them all. When their enemy is finally unmasked it becomes clear to Gabi that not all monsters come in obvious monster packages. Sometimes what you’re fighting to protect is what you should be fighting against. This insight brings her into very real conflict with the SMV Council and leaves her questioning her life-long allegiances.
With Kyle in enemy hands, Gabi grudgingly throws her support behind the massive SMV operation to shut down the enemy compound. The attack is the most dangerous they’ve ever attempted and not everyone will walk away intact.
Strap in, hang on and grab a breath while you can. The ride to Hell starts now!
