Based in the 1700s, Lorelei Shadow was forced to flee her home as a baby in England when her father was correctly accused of being a vampire, fleeing to Germany. (in this book, vampires can be born as well as turned, and if they are they stop aging at 17.) A day after, he is found dead in a pool of his own blood.

17 years later, Lorelei is all grown up, shying away from the rest of the vampire community. She wants nothing to do with them, and believes she is a monster, choosing instead to live in secret among the humans. But when her neighbors become suspicious, she is locked away and shunned from society, except for her neighbor's son, Deryk. Will she die? Or will this help both the humans and vampires try to live in peace with one another?
