Gillian Key is a complicated woman. As a paramortal psychologist, she can heal the mental distress of nonhumans. When duty calls, this Marine Special Forces operative can kill with the best of them.
Recalled by her commanding officer, Gillian finds herself in northern Russia after a devastating earthquake. Her special ops team, made up of both human and paramortal soldiers, breaks up a ring of child traffickers preying on newly orphaned children. But away from Count Aleksei Rachlav, the irresistible vampire she left behind, Gillian is vulnerable to the Dark Prince himself—Dracula—who would like nothing more than to use her as a pawn in his escalating war with Rachlav. And when Gillian is sidetracked by yet another mission in London, one that goes horribly wrong in, she finds herself at the mercy of one of Dracula's minions, a creature who rattles her like no other: Jack the Ripper—reborn.
