Description
In the first Novel of Secrets, Blood of the Lamb, Sam Cabot upended religious history with hair-raising twists that left readers reeling--and hungry for more. Now his "genre-bending series" (Popcorn Reads) continues as an ancient evil rises in the modern world with each full moon.

It was shocking enough for Father Thomas Kelly to discover the community of vampires known as the Noantri. Even more unsettling: Two colleagues, art historian Livia Pietro and scholar Spencer George, were among them. Now the three of them are working together in New York City, where Livia is attending a conference on Native American art. But when Spencer is attacked in Central Park by a wolf, they're plunged into a world where Iroquois lore and the doctrines of the Catholic Church have collided, resulting in a catastrophic revelation.

The attack on Spencer was not random, nor was it made by a normal wolf. It was a violent, calculated strike in a quest for power and domination that could destroy millions of lives--because under a full moon in Manhattan, everyone is going to be prey....
