Grief-stricken over the mysterious death of his beloved wife, the vampire known as Elliott Sinclair is sinking into lethargy and despair.

When a mysterious enemy assails his people, he rouses himself to command the defense, only to discover that he and his clan are merely pawns in a deadly game between two ancient undead. It is a duel that has raged since the dawn of civilization. And the unseen puppet master who has secretly guided the destiny of Elliott and his friends is willing to sacrifice every piece on the chessboard in order to checkmate her opponent.

On a Darkling Plain is a Word of Darkness novel and a tale of the Jyhad, the age-old clandestine war among vampires that has shaped the course of human and vampire history.
