A new generation of vampires embarks on a quest to save humanity.
Opening a forgotten crypt during a military exercise, Dr. Jane Heckman is made a vampire and begins a journey to unlock the secret origins of her new kindred.
Elsewhere, solitary vampire Marcella DuBois emerges from the shadows and uncovers a government plot to create vampire-like super soldiers.
Daniel McKee, a vampire working as an astronomer, moves to a new town where he's adopted by a family, only to have government agents strip those he loves away from him.
All three vampires discover the government is dabbling in technologies so advanced they'll tap into realms and dimensions they don't understand. To save humans and vampires alike, Jane, Marcella, and Daniel must seek out the legendary master vampire Desmond, Lord Draco and encourage him to resurrect his band of mercenaries, the Scarlet Order.
"A novel with bite. An amalgam of Blade and The Name of the Rose with a touch of X-Files thrown in for good measure." Neal Asher, author of Gridlinked and The Skinner.
"We now have our very own Southwestern vampire lore and tradition thanks to the imagination and painstaking research of Summers." S. Derrickson Moore, The Las Cruces Sun-News.
"Worthy… the vampires form the Scooby-Doo gang to fight evil. They must infiltrate Los Alamos and rescue fellow vampires being used for government weapon's reasearch." Fred Cleaver, The Denver Post.
"Summers writes richly, making us care about and identify with the ultimate group of outsiders who band together to protect the human race from its destructiveness and ultimate lack of humanity... This is a fun book to sink your teeth into and a good addition to the libraries of those readers with a taste for inventive vampire fiction." Roy Van der Aa, The Ink.
