In a world where shape shifters are openly bisexual, vampires have insatiable sex drives, and warlocks emit pheromones that make everyone around them horny, Zander Knight finds himself at a crossroads. He emerges from a coma with the realization that that he may be the only living being in the world that is part vampire, part magical and part shape shifter.
Unable to understand or control his new powers, his condition puts him at odds with his family who is at the very center of a movement to end supernatural race mixing. If that weren’t enough, he is being forced to choose between his place in the House of Aleph and his position as the Alpha mate for his lover and pack leader, Zuri Tau Long.
Just as Zander’s world is changing, so is the supernatural community. New threats arise as different factions of vampires, shifters and magicals fight to take their place in the new order. Zander is left deciding between fighting for his family and friends, and fighting to save the world that he has come to know and love. This is more than just one warlock’s love story – this is a supernatural adventure.
