Born into old money, Lily Ayres lives at Waverly, her family’s estate situated at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Paris, Virginia. She is a strange, small, almost mute, young woman who has no idea that her father has given her to the Vampire King Krieger. Walter Ayres is the King’s Keeper and part of a secret society of historians who unearth, preserve, and attempt to understand relics of long forgotten civil-izations.
Lily has never felt comfort-able in the human world, but after she suspiciously falls down a flight of stone steps, and is healed and claimed by Krieger, she realizes there is another world. In this Other Realm she feels a sense of belonging, and begins to untwine the mysterious event which left her mentally and psychologically damaged. When Walter disappears in England, Lily works with human and supernatural beings to uncover his whereabouts. With each new discovery, she is pulled deeper into the vortex of magic, intrigue, and dark desires that permeates the supernatural world. The revelations revealed unfold a story of deception and betrayal that threaten to tear the thin veil between the supernatural and human world asunder.
“Sire.” Merlin walked into his room and placed a stack of papers onto the round table. He was dressed in the same attire as the king, dark suit, conservative tie, nothing flashy, nothing memorable. “Some of my research. The doctor has everything he needs to evaluate her.”
Krieger sifted through the papers, stopping to read a newspaper article about her accident at Rolex. The picture showed a gray horse lying on its side. The caption explained that Lily was trapped underneath the horse’s body. There was one photo of Lily he particularly liked. She was sitting at an outdoor café. Her hair was pulled back from her face and she seemed to stare directly into the camera lens. He ran his finger down the delicate line of her cheek.
Merlin handed him a folder. “These are academic and miscellaneous medical records. She’s quite bright, always at the top of her class. The doctor’s notes are worrisome. Each one contradicts the other as to why she is so…” Merlin paused, clearly searching for the most appropriate word, finishing with “special.”
“You’re concerned?” Krieger didn’t bother to open the file before he placed it with the others on the table.
“May I speak openly?”
Krieger gave him a look. “When don’t you?”
“Perhaps Walter was not honest with you.”
Krieger’s smile was without warmth. “I would say Walter was most definitely not honest with me.”
“She may be unbalanced. She could be a danger to us.”
Krieger laughed. “I think I can manage one girl, deranged or not. Now, is everything ready?”
