As war between two rival vampireĀ gangs erupts and threatens to destroy the city, Thomas' medical training becomes vital to the war effort. It also endangers himself and his human friends. Torn between saving lives and protecting those he loves, Thomas must discover his new place in the world and avoid succumbing to the effects of the vampire curse.
