Francis Barclay, the vengeful and bloodthirsty vampire resurrected from the dead after 200 years in Risen, has once again returned from the ashes–—and this time he’s not alone! Working his slow and agonizing way back to Alder Lake, Barclay is determined to save Lorna, the vampire child he accidentally sired during his last revenge-fueled visit to town.
Kurt Dale, the womanizing detective blamed for his mistress’s death during Barclay’s murderous rampage, is once again in hot water with another woman. This time he does not have his best friend and partner to help bail him out trouble. In fact, there is a new detective in town who wouldn’t mind seeing Dale take a fall.
Risen began the tale of Francis Barclay’s return to Alder Lake to avenge the centuries old murder of his family. In this spellbinding sequel, Barclay is determined to save his progeny.
Kurt and his wife Amanda are unaware that Lorna, the daughter they love, was made vampire by Francis Barclay all those years before. While they realize she is wise beyond her years, and at times a bit peculiar, they do not know their child’s true nature.
When last we left Alder Lake, seven year-old Lorna was waiting patiently by the window for her blood-father’s return. Her wait is now over. She has inherited Francis Barclay’s luminous glowing eyes, as well as his taste for blood.
Alder Lake is once again plagued by murder. Only this time, the suspect will surprise everyone!
