A new slayer desperate to prove herself. A cursed vampire king waiting to be awakened. A kiss that would change everything.
I’m Delia Adams, daughter of the greatest slayer to have ever come out of Mallory Falls. I’ve been beaten down, broken, and told I wasn’t good enough while training to follow in my father’s footsteps, but here I am, ready to set out on my first mission. The problem? I’ve been tasked with killing the vampire king of Velum Mortis. Yeah, it kind of feels like I’m being set up to fail.
Now, standing in front of the slumbering king, desperate to prove myself, I prepare to shove my sword right through his heart and claim my first victory. I’m a slayer. He’s a vampire. It’s my duty to kill him.
So then why is the urge to abandon my mission and kiss him so damn strong?
