On an island humans have dubbed Purgatory, lives all manner of creatures that go bump in the night. Desirae, the new vampire Queen, must choose a werewolf to become her sole protector. Not only will this ensure her safety but it will forge an alliance between their two races that is sorely needed. The wolves are given shelter within the palace walls as long as they agree to be the daylight guardians of the vampires who live there. When the first she-wolf in over a millennia is brought before the Queen, a fierce curiosity leads to a hasty claim. Has she made the right choice? Can this she-wolf protect her when strange desires and ancient threats begin to surface?
