Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple — she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's...
Étienne d'Alencon: A French immortal and telepath, roughly two hundred years old. He is Lisette’s brother and Richart’s twin.
Krysta Linz: A mortal woman who catches Étienne completely off guard and challenges him in ways he never could have imagined.
Richart d’Alençon: A French immortal, roughly two hundred years old. He is Lisette’s brother and Étienne’s twin. Born with the ability to teleport, he’s a strong ally in any battle.
Seth: The eldest and most powerful Immortal Guardian. He possesses all of the paranormal abilities the others boast combined and then some. As their self-proclaimed leader, he considers it his responsibility to seek out all newly transformed immortals, ease their transition into their new life, train them, guide them, give them a new purpose and, if necessary, punish them should they stray from the boundaries he sets for them.
David: The second eldest and most powerful Immortal Guardian. Like Seth, he considers all Immortals and their Seconds family and opens his homes to them, aiding them in any way he can and putting their safety and happiness above his own. He is a very powerful healer and telepath, but possesses other interesting gifts as well.
Sebastien Newcombe: Bastien did what was previously considered impossible — raised a vampire army large enough to pose a serious threat to the Immortal Guardians — and tried to eradicate them one victim at a time. While doing so, he earned the hatred of immortals, vampires, and humans alike.
Dr. Melanie Lipton: A doctor with the human network who is daring enough to work hands-on with vampires as she searches for a cure for the virus or a way to prevent the madness it induces in humans.
Chris Reordon: Head of the East Coast division of the network of humans who aid the Immortal Guardians. He is fiercely protective of both the immortals and his employees and will do anything to ensure their safety.
Lisette d'Alençon: A French immortal and telepath, roughly two hundred years old. After being infected and nearly slain by her husband, she inadvertently infected both of her brothers and still labors beneath the guilt.
Marcus Grayden: An immortal who recently lost the woman he has loved for eight centuries and, consumed with grief, appear to be skating the edge. When his actions become reckless enough to concern Seth, the Immortal Guardians’ leader, Seth assigns him a new Second who will rapidly steal his heart and forever alter his world.
Amiriska (Ami): A mysterious woman of unknown origins Seth and David rescued from a facility heavily guarded by mercenaries. Brutally tortured for months, she sometimes questions her own sanity and must fight to overcome the fear instilled in her by her captors. Nevertheless, she is determined to perform her duties as Marcus’s Second and soon discovers within herself a fierce warrior.
Darnell: David’s Second, or human assistant, who plays an integral role in helping Ami recover and interacts with more immortals than any other Second.
Sheldon: Richart's Second, or human assistant. Currently the youngest Second and known to be somewhat green, he nevertheless is fiercely loyal to Richart and a good man to have at his back.
Roland Warbrook: A nine-hundred-and-thirty-six-year-old immortal born with the ability to heal with his hands. Betrayed one too many times in the past by those he loved the most, he distanced himself from relationships of any kind and trusted no one until Sarah charged into his life. Though notoriously antisocial, he is like a brother to Marcus.
Sarah Bingham: Formerly a music theory professor at UNC Chapel Hill. Her sole desire once was rest and relaxation . . . until she found Roland staked to the ground, being tortured by two others in the meadow behind her home and used her trusty shovel to liberate him, becoming the target of a vicious vampire army. Now she must swiftly adapt and find a place for herself in this strange new paranormal world.
Sean Linz: Krysta's brother, has healing abilities
Zach: A dark, enigmatic, winged figure who calls himself Seth's cousin.
