A year after she and Elias parted ways, Ashleigh finds herself in the seaside city of Briscombe-by-Sea. With only Victor for company, she spends her nights hunting down feral vampires, and exacting her own brand of revenge on the species which took her friends and freedom. Her escapades bring her to the attention of the vampire hunters, Leon and Tim. Will they give in to the hatred between their species? Or will new alliances be formed? The scent rife under the onslaught of icy needles was nowhere near as sweet as I'd have liked. It was the stench of blood, and death. The girl lay beneath a hastily erected evidence tent. Small yellow markers pinpointed bodily fluids, cigarette butts, and anything else the officers felt might be significant. Like morbid sentries, the general public stood watch. Some took pictures, others whispered nonsense to any stranger willing to listen to their theories of the events leading to her demise. Not that they would ever guess the truth behind the corpse. Vampires.
