Book Two of the Vampire Covenant Trilogy
Kersey is afraid. After years of hiding away from Mydian, a vengeful god, she has been pushed to her limit—to her threshold of anger and resentment. A powerful vampire with the uncanny ability to control the dead, Kersey is a force to be reckoned with. But Mydian is not dissuaded. From the ashes of death, he sends Dyne back to the world of the living—to Mystyria to hunt her down. In the shackles of a human body, she will struggle against all odds—mortal inadequacies, rivalry, jealousy and deceit. Their quests will run parallel across the realms in pursuit, in fear, and in quiet deception while the gods watch on. Unknowing to both, their actions will change the face of Mystyria and ignite a brewing conflict.
An angry god started the first war,
An angry god started the second,
The rage of a woman will start the third . . .

With her vampiric army in tow, Dyne steps foot on the Birchlock Estate with Hannah, the small child she stole away from a torn family. But in Hope’s Covenant, Tranas Anvaar arrives to bring justice to the vampiress-to make her pay for the lives she’s destroyed. Once a peaceful man, Tranas now chases her across the world in an attempt to avenge his wife and daughter. But their meeting in Hope’s Covenant is no accident. An ancient evil has brought them together. An evil that is trying to resurrect something long forgotten-something of true horror. Dyne and Tranas, immortal enemies, soon learn that they are merely pawns in a much larger game.
