The choice is hers. Bow to those who want her throne…
… or take them all to hell with her.

Vampire queen Katia faces a new threat when a charismatic sire with legions at his beck and call decides he wants her territory… And her.

Now she must fight for the rule she sacrificed so much to wield. And she’s ready. Until she learns that there’s more to Bastian’s desire for her throne than she knew. A faction of uncannily strong vampires challenges the empires both she and Bastian have built.

He needs her and her followers to fight the upstarts, determined to take down the old guard for a new order. An order that would see them grovel or be staked.

Can she put aside her hate and her unwanted desire for the dark sire? Or will the uprising tide of a new faction mark the end of them both?
