Tia Mau is a beautiful, dark-haired, green-eyed girl who has a secret, dark and painful, that she cannot share with anyone. She is not just an average, all-American young woman. She is a creature, born in ancient Egypt, that lives to feed on the life force of others. Cursed by a vengeful goddess, she suffers every day knowing that she must prey on the humans she has sworn to protect from her curse in order to fulfill her oath. Until she meets a young man, she has thought herself cold and vile, a creature born of darkness. As she slowly lets him into her heart, she comes to realize that she isn't the monster she'd always thought herself to be.
However, when an old friend she'd thought long dead returns to avenge herself, Tia must defend Aiden from this new monster that she had created ages ago, and destroy a rising evil that threatens the lives of both her, Aiden, and those of all of humanity.
