Mira is back. Mira: the bane of the vampires, the Firestarter, head vampire of the Savannah area. She has now discovered that her maker is not her only maker – she is only one of three. The Triad – the three most powerful vampires of the council, worked together for many, many years to create Mira. Feeling much betrayed by them, especially after using her fire, working for centuries to enforce their edicts upon other vampires worldwide, Mira has turned on them, deciding that she alone can change the destiny of her people. She and Danaus, that is. Danaus, the vampire hunter, who is human – to the best of her knowledge. He is more – but she knows not what, and he isn't telling. From official release/information:
Product Description: A master of fire, Mira is the last hope for the world. For centuries she has secretly enforced the history-altering edicts of the Triad. Now she and her unlikely ally—the human vampire hunter, Danaus—have come to Venice, home of the nightwalker rulers. But there is no safety in the ancient city, for the threat of conflict is in the wind . . . with unholy alliances and earth-shattering betrayals taking hideous form in the shadows.
Banished for eons beyond the world's boundaries, the malevolent naturi prepare to feed once again upon a vulnerable earth—and treachery is opening wide the portal that will enable their dread re-emergence. The great battle that has always been Mira's destiny is looming, and she must remain powerful in the face of a shocking revelation: that Danaus, the only creature she dares to trust, is something more than the man he claims to be . . .
