Eight years ago, slayer Tuck Houston lost two of her closest friends to a Damned vampire named Josef Dragos - a beast who traded the sun for darkness and blood. She's been hunting him since the day she walked into the carnage he created. But Josef has hidden himself well in the underground, from both slayers and other vampires.
When slayers around the globe start disappearing in a familiar pattern - Josef's pattern - she's put on the hunt. And despite the painful memories and very real threat to her future that come with tracking him down, Tuck is certain of one thing: she is going to make Josef Dragos wish he'd never been born.
