Vampires with bite
This time, it's vampires. Damien, 964 years young is the oldest vampire and the longest to reign as Prince. Vampires are notoriously selfish, easily bored (so bored they'll run to ground and sleep for a century), like to play mischief, and are incapable of love so they sleep around quite a bit. Enter Syreena, Lycanthrope Princess and heir to Siena (who we met in Elijah...Queen of the Lycanthropes). Through a strange twist in illness, she's like a harlequin. Half her hair brown (falcon), half her hair grey (dolphin) with mismatched eyes of the same color in opposite sides. Unlike other Lycans, she can be two animals. Like her sister, as a royal, if she mates, she mates for life. Damien soon realizes that the reasons vampires can't love is b/c they don't drink from other Nightwalkers.... The hostilities with Ruth the traitorous demon turned necromancer escalates as she kidnaps and brutally tortures Syreena. She recruits aid in corners unpredicted, and has become even more powerful. The long lost Nightwalker Library holds truths too scary yet too important to all Nightwalkers...as it does also hold truths to why Damien has finally awoken to all his emotions for the first time in a 1000 years. Although the romance is set up less, the actual plot of the arc is improving.
