“Come little slayer, into my lair, and we shall play a game....”
Ten months after the events with Josef Dragos, slayer Tuck Houston is in Iceland training with her strigoi guardian. The strigoi blood awakened in her gives her no choice but to do so. But her training is interrupted by the one Damned who keeps slipping out of her grasp - Penelope.
The beautiful Damned has finally come calling to finish the game she started with Tuck a little over 16 years ago. But instead of retrieving Tuck herself, Penelope is sending her on a scavenger hunt. A hunt that Tuck's more than ready to go on, despite the fact that it's going to drive her deeper into the world of the strigoi and the darkness that birthed Penelope.
Tuck welcomes the darkness, knowing that at the end of it all it could spell her death.
