From J. Kenner, the New York Times bestselling author of Release Me and Claim Me, writing as J. K. Beck

Tiberius is a vampire dedicated to protecting his kind—and the secrets of the shadow world. Now, as his quest to become head of the Alliance draws within reach, a shattering new threat puts him to the ultimate test. It’s a nightmare of grim proportions: a dark plot to bring about the mass extermination of human and shadow alike. And it forces Tiberius to turn to the woman he loved and lost, the lover he still desires but doesn’t trust.

Caris was Tiberius’s mate for centuries—until a fateful mission changed her forever. Her tortured secrets drove her into the arms of his rival, but desperation has brought her back. As a horrifying new weapon of mass destruction is about to be unleashed, Tiberius and Caris harness the power of their immortal and passionate love. But will it be enough to battle devastating odds and a ruthless enemy with the ambition to destroy them all?

Don’t miss the short story “Shadow Keepers: Midnight” in the back of the book.
Bonus: This edition contains an excerpt from J. Kenner's Release Me.

Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 12, 2012 – The fourth Shadow Keepers paranormal (following When Wicked Craves) pits the underground culture of shadowers—a loose alliance of vampires, shape-shifters, djinns, para-demons, and other supernatural entities—against vampire-werewolf hybrids whose acid blood and plague-inducing breath kill humans and turn vampires to dust. Ancient, strong-minded vampire Tiberius doesn’t trust the new shape-shifter leader, alpha werewolf Faro Lihter, who hates humans with a passion. Tiberius’s instincts are right, because Lihter plans to use hybrids to empty the planet so he can repopulate it in his own image. Meanwhile Tiberius’s old flame, the vampire Caris, who’s been living with werewolf leader Gunnolf since Tiberius banished her, returns with a deadly secret: Lihter’s Mengele-like scientist, Reinholt, kidnapped her and made her into a hybrid. Her background makes Caris the perfect spy to infiltrate weren politics for Tiberius, who still secretly loves her, but first the two must come to terms with their shared past. Despite some extraneous plot threads and unnecessary characters, the romance at the heart of Beck’s latest romantic paranormal thriller will keep fans hungry for more.
