Gaia's theriomorphs may have gravely injured Elizabeth Bathory, but they face new challenges now that her daughter Anna has instigated a coup against her mother. An appeal for help from Antonio, Marielle's European deputy, results in new revelations for the younger theriomorphs about the origins and nature of the enemy they've been fighting for so long -- revelations which also change how Evan St. John sees his role in the war. Tyr Gustavson -- a theriomorph who has been feral since 1945, grieving the death of his partner Aaron -- and Adam Carson -- a fighter pilot who was turned into a vampire against his will -- enter the picture, both of them still fighting the specters of their experiences in WWII. As the theriomorphs attempt both to block Anna's moves against them and to find and destroy Elizabeth once and for all, Tyr and Adam are drawn together, despite Tyr's hatred of vampires. When Tyr pushes Adam away out of fear, Adam accepts a desperate, suicidal mission to find Thrace, the original nosferatu. If their desperate plan works, the theriomorphs would have the opportunity to destroy not only Elizabeth, but the sire of all vampires. But if it fails, they might have unleashed a force which could lead to the destruction of them all -- and perhaps even of Gaia herself.
