A KING CAN RULE ONLY WITH A QUEEN BY HIS SIDE: Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy, and hunger for power have torn The Original Family apart.
When Melissa Fiorelli receives a terrifying phone call from her good friend, Hayley Marshall, pleading for help to come to New Orleans to rescue her, Melissa embarks on a mission to save her.
There, Melissa realises that all is not what it seems: the 'King', Marcel Gerard, is making all the rules, having chased out the werewolves years ago, banning the witches from using magic and allowing vampires to reveal themselves to humans ― an endless supply of blood.
Worse, Melissa discovers that Niklaus Mikaelson is also in town. Melissa, with a witch's aid, gains a 'mask' to hide her true face from Niklaus. But will their past catch up with them?
Beneath the glamour of New Orleans runs a terrifying feud between Marcel Gerard and Niklaus Mikaelson, Hayley's little secret, a brewing coven of witches and a war to regain New Orleans in the hands of the Originals.
