The fifth thrilling urban fantasy in the “engrossingly fun” (Entertainment Weekly) Maker's Song series following the adventures of FBI agent Heather Wallace and the mysterious, seductive vampire Dante.Dante and Heather fight for their lives against two different foes to find their way back to each other. Dante, lost to his shattered and painful past, his bond with Heather the only thing keeping him sane, searches for Heather and the man who stole her. Powerplays and intrigue intensify as knowledge of what Dante truly is—a True Blood/Fallen Maker—ripples through nightkind and mortal societies. The Cercle de Druide wish to guide Dante to proper godhood with themselves as his advisors; the Shadow Branch covet his world-altering power, power they could command with a single word; while the Coneil du Sang plan to use Dante to strengthen and purify vampire bloodlines. And the Fallen wait for his return to Gehenna to heal their dying land. Time is quickly running out and the fate of three worlds—mortal, nightkind, and Fallen—pivots around Dante as he struggles to piece together his shattered psyche and gain control of his power before he rips all three worlds asunder.

The last, sick machinations of the Shadow Bureau scramble to destroy Dante and Heather, but while I struggled with the endless agents in past books, t...
