In the 1860s, Hunter Eldridge is a military veteran with a tumultuous home life and a fraught relationship with his father. When he returns to London, Hunter reluctantly visits the family bookstore, dreading an encounter with his loathsome father. Upon entering he sets eyes on the enchanting Eliza Carlisle. They fall deeply in love—soul mates to the core—and spend fifteen years happily married before tragedy strikes. On Hunter’s birthday, after enjoying a wonderful night with family, he and Eliza are out for a leisurely stroll when a horrific creature of the night attacks them. Eliza is murdered, while Hunter is transformed into a vampire. In this new state, he finds a mentor in his father’s peculiar business partner Garret Wilkins. Hunter also eyes a suspect in his tragic attack and vows revenge. Over the next century, Hunter must rebuild his life as an immortal. He is lucky enough to find love again after years of loneliness and despair. Endless time allows him to unravel the mystery of reincarnation while struggling with a darker side of himself. In Hunter’s continued thirst for vengeance, he realizes death is only the beginning as he reveals a small piece of a bigger event that is about to grip the country.

As I look back on my life and my years of living in England, with the one who has always held my heart. I feel the faint heartache and yearning. I remember that day well, the last day of my life.  I sat in my lounge chair, enjoying the cool air of a London morning, on my balcony, looking at my beautiful wife and with a warm feeling of contentment fill me.  I still remember our words that morning, it will forever be in my soul.------ Life seems to move slow today, I can see the next-door children playing on the lawn, as just like us their parents sip their tea.

I walk with Eliza and ponder many things about Garrett, and the oddly disturbing Mrs. Norris, or "Bathilda' as Eliza calls her. They are so different from everyone yet, also I feel cold chills when associating with them like, both of them are looking at me, waiting for something to happen. What I do not know? Garrett does care for me, I can see in his eyes. Bathilda gives me the creeps, and I swear I catch her watching me with longing. I pray it is just my imagination. I am so engrossed in my thoughts, I do not hear Eliza calling my name.“Hunter? Hunter? Are you listening?” I turn to look at Eliza “Oh I beg your pardon, my dear, my mind was preoccupied with other things”. She looks at me irritated. I did not mean to ignore her. “I said, I think I want to go to the baker’s first, I would like to see if they have any sweets made”. I stand up and go to retrieve our coats. “That sounds very good, perhaps they’ll be enough for both of us”. We walk down the road, we ar

Terrified beyond belief, we see a figure in the shadows of the walk. It looks female, it all happens so quickly I do not have the mental ability to process the speed at which she attacks, I hear Eliza screams shortly and disappears into the shadows of night. “ELIZA!!!”I scream for her until I hear laughing. I could not believe my ears. How could this have happened to us? “That takes care of that wench! Do you know how long I have wanted you, watching you, and couldn’t do anything because she was always around!” I am staring into the darkness, mortified, praying for my beloved's safety. I have a heart-shattering feeling that she is lost to me forever. I hear her voice as if she can read my mind “Yes, Hunter, she is lost to you, she was never meant for you! You have always been mine secretly!” I am so enraged. “Show yourself, wench! I swear on this day, I don’t know what you are but, I shall make you suffer for what you have done!!” She laughs, and steps into the light, my heart i

It is so agonizing, this pain, so all-consuming. My insides feel like their being burned alive; my heart feels like it is scorched by the heat of the sun. Every nerve ending my body feels likes it's being electrified and charred to ash. I writhe in agony and try desperately not to scream from the pain. Nothing in my past years of being a soldier can compare to this living hell. Just when I think the pain subsides, it reignites in a new part of my body. it is constant torture of cool and boiling. As one part of my body feels like it's becoming like ice, my heart is now feeling it is being plunged through by a sword heated with molten lava. I endure this torment, feeling like I am bathing in hellfire and cooled down by ice. Wishing for death, a part of me knows that it will not come. I am turning into a damned soulless creature like her.At that moment I feel like I am being lifted and carried off into oblivion. Nothi
