New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jeaniene Frost returns with the next book in the bestselling Night Prince series and a story of love on the brink of destruction
Now that Vlad knows his nemesis, Mihaly Szilagyi, is still alive, the hunt is on. But after the close call Leila suffered at Szilagy’s hands he refuses to accept her help finding him, let alone allowing her anywhere near the madman. Vlad’s seen enough death to last all his lifetimes — he doesn’t plan on putting his beloved in the path of destruction too.
Leila understands Vlad’s resistance, but with her psychometric abilities, she’s the perfect person to check for loyalty among his ranks and search for Szilagyi — if only Vlad will accept her help. Stuck between staying true to Vlad and helping him defeat his nemesis, Leila’s forced to do something she’s not proud of.

Or will the prophesy that Vlad destroys everything he loves come true, leaving Leila no choice but to escape before she suffers the same fate as his first wife...
