The Dead of Night
Alec Cason has survived vampire attacks, a hostage situation, and even the vampire council’s attempts to destroy him. Thanks to three Ancient Ones, the oldest vampires in existence, who stepped in and spoke on Alec’s behalf, the matter of his illegal creation has finally been resolved. Now, he’s one of the Unfettered, outside of vampire law and free to get his life back on track. His enemy, a very powerful vampire calling himself the Devil, has other plans and has created a weapon forbidden by vampire law. When someone close to Alec gets hurt and a friend is abducted, he realizes that the situation is spiraling quickly out of his control. Alec finds himself tested beyond anything he could have ever imagined, exploring how much he’s willing to trust those he doesn’t know and how far he’s willing to go to save himself and his friends. The plots and schemes of the Devil may break Alec, or they may reveal a hidden strength he didn’t know he had.
Alec Carson wakes up naked and alone with a crazed woman that has abducted him, sliced his wrists open for her own dark needs and forced him to drink blood for her own sadistic ends. After unknown assailants attack his abductor, Alec finds himself in the hospital alive and thinks the nightmare has ended and that his life will get back to normal once he starts college. But he is wrong. His journey into the dark, secret world of immortal beings, dark power plays and an unknown enemy that wants him dead, is just beginning and Alec will have to fight just to prove he has the right to exist. What can Alec do to stay alive and prove himself worthy of trust and the right to live? He will have to pit himself against an ageless enemy that wants to see him dead and align himself with powers that even immortals fear. What he’s become has never been seen before and what he doesn’t know could get him killed. Alec was born in shadow, but he will be shadow-borne through his journey to see himself liberated and he will be forced into becoming a power to be reckoned with.
