How would the story change if Rose and Dimitri were sent outside the confines of St Vlad's— for an entire month? It's just the two of them, sent out to give Rose an intensive training experience in the field. In a house set up for a couple. Will they survive the month without their control crumbling? Does Alberta know?... And has she done this to them on purpose?... Who else knows? How does the month away affect Christian and Lissa? Will the ski trip happen? And what about Adrian? Oh! And Victor's trial– how does that go down? What about Rose's mother? How will others view this month? Will Abe appear? And what about Rose's kills???
