Erin Hamilton follows Dante Gabriel back into hellâ€”the underground compound where he was held for a decadeâ€”to confront the woman who held him captive. Finally unmasked, she seems to hold Dante under her influence. Erin has faith in Danteâ€™s strength and determination, though, especially when the mysterious Vampyre Texts reveal their first secret.
Dante struggles to regain his control, even as he grows stronger and the darkness rises within him. Heâ€™ll let his captor think she commands him as long as it serves his purpose, but if Erin or anyone else is threatened, all bets are off. Heâ€™ll use all his powers against her, whether or not he can master them.
