"And they say that a hero will save us. I'm not going to stand here and wait."
-from Hero by Chad Kroeger

Anne Perrin has lived a life of fear and solitude. Yet, when the worst thing that could happen does, she discovers the family we choose isn’t always the one we’re born into. Instead, family may be those that find…and fit…us when and where we least expect them.

 

A sadistic madman gets the power he only dreamed of--as a full-fledged vampire. Driven by new, heightened instincts, William Taplin spreads fear and misery through San Francisco’s fog-shrouded nights. In the process, he perpetuates a vampire plague that unwittingly serves the malevolent Entity’s plan. At the crux of William’s scheme is the woman he brutalized while still human and continues to stalk. Only Anne and a small group of unlikely angels with incredible secrets of their own stand between the Entity and its ultimate vision of the future...one in which humanity doesn’t exist.
