Nika, a halfblood vampire, faces conspiracies and dark magic during a hunt for her best friend - whose kidnapping has sparked a war between supernaturals. ***** Lurking in the shadows of the human world are Daemonstri - beings akin to vampires, witches, werewolves, and other foul myths. Nika, a seventeen-year-old Daemonstri, has been alienated since birth for having "tainted" blood, and her only real family is her best friend Lu. So when vengeful shapeshifters kidnap Lu, she scrambles to the rescue. With the help of Ren, a guardian on her father's payroll, Nika uncovers shocking conspiracies about the Daemonstri government and even darker truths about herself. Bloody confrontations leave both Nika and Ren vulnerable to their growing feelings, while Lu's abductors execute horrifying plans. And should they survive the chaos of war, only one thing is certain: their world will never be the same.
