Long ago the portal was sealed, and Los Angeles-now
Crimson City-rid itself of demons for eternity. Or so
Claudia Donovan believed. With the city's
other "paranormals" more active than ever, and the treaty
between the species all but dissolved, she and the rest of
the CCPD have enough to handle.
But now her daughter has been kidnapped and she's learned
that demons still exist-and that they are plotting. To
whom can she turn for help? The vampire, Tiberiu Korzha,
whose eyes promise death but whose lips taste of eternity?
Or does salvation lie with the powerful Lath, he who
inspires lust beyond name? Thirst, bitterness, despair-on
the plane of Orcus, all these things await. But just as
surely, beyond that portal are Claudia's daughter, victory
and true love.
