The Vampire Protection Program
"Careful vampire, I have all your strengths, but none of your weaknesses," my eyes narrow on him across from his desk.
He distastefully spits, "Dhampir."
"Verndari," I roll my eyes and correct him with the same discontent.
"Same difference," he stands from his chair, his citrine eyes reflecting the overhead lighting, "You could be the very last soul on this world and I still wouldn't trust you."
† Lydia Eskridge
♙ Mathias Iglehart
She was his salvation.
He was her redemption.
It is the year 2078. As the vampires' existence became known, humans feared what their presence would mean for their world. Hunting and killing their race, the vampires were forced to flee into hiding. Their king, the Vampire Archon, established a safe haven few humans know the whereabouts to.
The Archon's Emissaries, humans loyal to the vampire race through the trust of the dhampir half-breed children, are responsible for finding the last remnants of the vampire race.
Ranked within the Archon's Emissaries are the verndari, the preservers, entrusted to escort the vampires to the Nexus where they will finally be safe and out of reach from the human race.
Lydia is the eldest of the three dhampir daughters of the Eskridge line. When she finds a lone vampire, Mathias, through the orders of the Archon's Emissaries, she couldn't possibly have imagined he'd be her very last escort to the Nexus.
