Description


Atherina has been imprisoned for a century for a crime she didn't commit. The Old Ones, the leaders of the vampires, release her early to be their personal bounty hunter. If she finds the one who made the existence of the vampires public knowledge and returns the individual to the Old Ones for punishment, her sentence will be commuted. She travels to America and tries to assimilate to the changes a new century brings. She teams up with Detective Forest Green and the first vampire, Wesley Linton. The three follow the clues and manage to save a group of children and destroy Wesley's sire. Along the way, they establish a friendship and a trust. Atherina discovers the vampire she seeks is her ex lover and old nemesis, Donovan. He was the reason she had been imprisoned. She locates him and tries to get him to turn himself in. Unwilling to surrender, he repeatedly attempts to kill her unsuccessfully. During her finally battle with Donovan, Detective Green comes to her rescue saving her life and destroying Donovan. She was badly injured and it took both Green and Wesley to nurse her back to health. Atherina reluctantly shuns Green's offer for a life together and returns to the Old Ones with only a medallion to prove Donovan was dead. She discovers they are interested in Detective Green. She refuses to sacrifice him to secure her freedom. Unable to break her, the Old Ones grant Atherina her freedom and allow her to return to Green.
