The greatest mistake vampires ever made was letting us believe in them. England, 1887. All vampires have been enslaved. Kept in silver chains, they live in eternal pain to serve their human masters. This is the world Sarah Veil must make her way in. A child of immigrants, and a hatred of being touched, Sarah grew up knowing that she was different. Neither of these things are helpful when she is expected to marry into British society and secure the empire her father had built. And with a legacy built on the suffering of others, and the pull of an unthinkable love, Sarah isn't sure what she wants anymore.
