Today is the day that will set my life on the path I was born to take… Only my true destiny is nothing that I could have ever imagined in my wildest dreams. I’m Delia Adams, daughter of one of the greatest slayers to have ever come out of Mallory Falls. I’ve been beaten down, broken, and told I wasn’t good enough while training to follow in his footsteps, but here I stand, ready to embark on my first mission. The problem? I’ve been tasked with killing the vampire king of Velum Mortis. Yeah, it kind of feels like I’m being set up to fail, but still, I push on. My only saving grace is that the king was cursed years ago and has been sleeping ever since. An easy target, so I’m told. I listened as they told me where to find him, but I already knew. He’d been calling to me for years, only I didn’t know he was the reason I’d gone to that cemetery hidden deep in the woods time after time. Now, standing in front of the slumbering king, desperate to prove myself, I prepare to shove my sword right through his heart, ending him, and claiming my first victory. But I can’t help but look at him, taking in the beauty and strength in his features and wonder why I’ve been so drawn to him. I’m a slayer. He’s a vampire. It’s my duty to kill him. So then why is the urge to abandon my mission and kiss him so damn strong?
