Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Official[edit | edit source]

There is no happily ever after for Damali and Carlos, even though they have finally tied the knot. There are bigger problems on the horizon: A band of human scientists conducting secret experiments has opened the dimension that holds Cain, the son of Eve and the new Chairman of the Vampire Council. And now that Cain is back into the human world, he's bigger and badder than ever.

Cain has amassed an army of creatures no one has ever encountered before…and he has plans of his own for his beloved Vampire Huntress Damali. So when she heads to Hell to serve justice―and faces a nemesis of pure, unforeseen evil―it's all Carlos can do to get Damali back. After all, his wife might be pregnant. The question is: Is Damali's child his―or the Chairman's?
