Warlord Vladimir Barbu has seized control of Transylvania, but his claim to the throne remains anything but certain. The king of Hungary opposes his rule, his people despise him, and the high priestess needed to crown him has vanished without a trace. Refusing to see his ambitions thwarted, he hires an assassin to hunt her down? Killing is the only life Xavian Ramir knows. But now the elite assassin wants out, vowing to start anew after one last job? High priestess Afina Lazar is running for her life, desperate to protect the magical amulet entrusted to her care. When Barbu's hired killer finds her, she knows her only chance of stopping the warlord's rise to power is to convince this enigmatic ? and handsome ? hunter that she is more valuable alive than dead. Together, they will undertake a dramatic adventure through a magical world where love and redemption come at a terrible price.
