The vampires and Lycan clans have been fighting for years, making the dark world a battle field. They will stop at nothing to prove to one another that each is stronger.
At the midst of the fight is Selene, who is not trusted by both groups who were once her allies but turned traitors. She is the common enemy and she will have to do everything in her power to fight off their brutal attacks.
To be able to fight, Selena needs new allies who she gets in Thomas and his son David. They are not enough. She will have to sacrifice something precious to her.

Fortunately or unfortunately, it is not only Marius looking to suck the blood out of Selene and Eve. Vampire leader, Semira, is also thirsty for some blood from the two ladies.
