Lucian Dragos had lived for centuries, and had been on the run for half that time. He was an Immortal Hunter, or had been until his own foolishness had cost him his job. Now HE was the hunted. Peace for immortals and mortals alike was still his top priority, but being a rogue immortal had a tendency to make one doubt their purpose. After nine hundred years, he decides to put an end to things. His pride and his families honor keeps him from simply ending things himself, and giving up had never been his style, so he decides to turn himself in to the Council for termination. But on the eve before his departure to face his fate, a horrible event changes his destination, and he finds himself running again.
