Raised by her aunt as a baby after the death of her father and her mother being institutionalized, Alexandra “Alex” Hensley grew up determined to put the past behind her. As such, her boyfriend Matt and best friend Lauren, became her new family, and her love for them was unquestioned.
On a night out, the trio meet Dante Delavega, owner of the hottest nightclub in Sydney. Despite Lauren’s advances, Delavega hovers over Alex like a mysterious, protective shadow, all but completely ignoring her friends. His actions flatter Alex but confuse and anger both Lauren and Matt.
To prevent losing the two people that have been there for her for as long as she can remember, Alex feels she owes it to them and herself to find out what it is about Dante that is pulling them apart. But once she delves into his world, Alex cannot go back. For Dante holds the key to the truth about her family. When Alex discovers what really happened to her parents, she unlocks an Australian secret kept hidden since the First Fleet.
But no truth comes without a cost. A secret of this magnitude has remained due to one simple rule: they join us or die. Suddenly, Matt and Lauren disappear and Dante’s greatest battle begins. Can he truly save Alex? Or will Alex have to make the ultimate sacrifice, for those she loves?
Alex Hensley thought that discovering vampires existing in Sydney was as dangerous as her life could possibly get, but she was wrong. Her very survival still depends on her ability to keep the secret. Just when Alex believes she has a grip on her new life, Nicholas, the teenage son of her estranged cousin shows up unannounced and gives her a chilling note from his mother, begging for help; the boy is in grave danger.
Nicholas, though kind and mild mannered is not forthcoming and Alex senses something is dreadfully wrong. The more Alex delves, the closer she is to igniting a war more personal for her than she ever dreamed. Though she cannot turn the boy away, something perhaps even worse than vampires has been unleashed in Sydney. The vampire nation scrambles as tensions rise. Their hold over the city has never been challenged like this, and they would rather destroy Sydney than relinquish it.
How can Alex hope to protect Nick, when the entire city is under threat and Alex can warn no one?
Ideals will be shaken. Friendships will be tested. Allegiances will be questioned.
The streets of Sydney will shatter as a bloodthirsty battle, once thought to exist only in myth, rises at the full moon.
No victory comes without cost. For Alexandra Hensley, that cost was crippling. She has no time to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart as another test of courage looms; the nightmare no one saw coming.
The Shadow Killer is unlike anything Alex has encountered.
As vampire allies join the hunt for him, she realises the paranormal is no longer being hidden. The secret is out and spilling onto the streets.
When it seems they are closing in on the killer, his true intent is discovered.
There is a way to defeat him. There is always a way. But there is always a price. Time is running out and the choice must be made. What would you give up to save the person you love the most?
