She has ascended.
College student Rachel Cross has a lot to handle as she begins her junior year in college: a full course load, regaining her spot on the women’s hockey team, a new love in her life. She has learned to balance her every day responsibilities with her role as leader of the Guardianship.
The nightmare awakens.
The tenuous peace Rachel has found is threatened when an old enemy re-surfaces. It shatters as Ariana Luciaro, a nightmare from Alexandra’s past, sets her sights on Rachel. As Guardians begin to die, Rachel turns to mysterious club owner Erin Barnes, branded a traitor by the Guardianship. She knows all too well the depravity Ariana is capable of and is torn between helping the beautiful Guardian or fleeing once more from her past.
To the edge of madness.
Ariana has sworn vengeance on Rachel for killing her favored off-spring. She begins to target Rachel’s loved ones as well as Guardians, pushing Rachel to her breaking point. Rachel vows to stop the blood-thirsty vampire but as the deaths begin to add up, she realizes the price she’ll have to pay may be her own sanity.
