A century has passed when the vampire Regina, queen of the Selenian Coven, is awakened around the year 2123. She's back in Texas for a short time, reintegrating into her coven, when her partner Niko suddenly vanishes. The future grows dystopian, as the dark metropolis of Dallas is quickly infested with violence and enigmatic disasters.
After a violent confrontation, in search of Niko's whereabouts, Regina meets Maverick, a taciturn, yet striking man from New Mexico. The danger follows him too, beyond his control, due to his victimizing past. He narrowly escapes it when Regina saves him from getting gunned down. She must awaken the elders in Romania as peril spreads across her realm, but with a human to protect now, the mission seems next to impossible. She is rigidly set on going alone, though a frightened Maverick is trying to convince her to take him with her.
In the enchanting Southwestern desert, their fates entwine even more, and consequently, Regina learns not to underestimate a human. Maverick may be more powerful than he appears to be, against the bloodshed that awaits.
