Malakai Cavanagh has been a vampire for over a thousand years and the leader of the Irish vampire kiss for almost 200 hundred of those years. Sitting on the Inferna council is only part of his role within the Inferna community; he is also the face of Sicarius Security, the world’s leading security company. But Sicarius is the legitimate front for what he and his Kiss do; they kill those who threaten the very balance between human and Inferna, thus exposing humans to everything that goes bump in the night.
Keeva Cross is the abomination of her Scream, a banshee who cannot predict death, an industry that earns the Scream millions each year. Instead, Keeva’s touch can kill. After killing her best friend by accident when she was a teen, her sentence for her crime was a hundred years service to gain her freedom; and when she is offered a contract to kill one little vampire in other to wipe out the last twenty years of her sentence, Keeva is hungry at the seemingly easy job.
Centuries old peace between the Inferna species is starting to unravel, and Malakai and Keeva find themselves smack bang in the middle of the beginnings of an uprising. Working together might be the only way to stop what’s coming, if only they can douse the flames of attraction that neither one is prepared for.
