Samanthŕa Lampiŕ is High Priestess of twelve powerful and ancient bloodlines which consist of Strygi, a type of immortal vampire-- and Lycãon, a wolf sharing soul with a male or female human. She has great respect for the Old Ways and their laws. It was her vow when she took her title to restore them to her people. But alas, it seems that the Evil bloodlines which desire the destruction of her world and its realms have become stronger. Her bloodlines are becoming extinct. And the Awakening that she has struggled to prevent because of an age long curse has been triggered; by the return of someone even more cursed…Daŕeus Dracuŕa, the thirteenth bloodline, Father of the Blood.
Daŕeus returns to TEŔAH to find his bloodlines and their realms attacked by an unseen and unnamable force. He is the only one who can protect them, restore them and end this phase of madness and destruction. But in order to do so, he needs his High Priestess at her full power. The problem is that she will not welcome what all others before her have willingly, an Awakening-- which he deems will free her and she deems will be her end, and the end of those she loves most.
