What would you do for love? Would you lie for it? Would you die for it? Would you kill for it? Would you endure centuries of darkness for just one last chance to change everything, even if you knew it was probably hopeless?
Love is never easy. But in the end, it is all that is worth fighting for.
In 1587, the forbidden love between Cassondra Clare, a wycan, and her sworn enemy, vampire heir, Daniel Croft was destined to end badly. Now almost 500 years later, two other star-crossed lovers, their direct descendants, try to defy the curse that will precipitate the final conflict.
Love is never easy, nonetheless, for nearly 500 years, Jaydon Croft has fantasized about one thing: killing the witch who imprisoned him for loving her. True, he betrayed her and his good twin by revealing their plans, but that was a minor technicality. She should have loved him, not his sainted brother. But she didn't and damn it, the witch was going to pay!
Love is never easy. It's even harder when he's in love with your best friend. It's harder still when you realize that she is destined to kill him. Nonetheless, when the first day of senior year finally rolled around in sleepy Croft's Landing, NC, Jules Walker was totally psyched. Not only was she going to hook up with her best bud and fellow Blud band member Dylan Croft after the long summer vacation, but more importantly, according to the grapevine, Dylan and Landing High's resident queen bitch, Amanda Zane, were officially over. For some reason, that made Jules' heart beat just a tad faster. However, before she even had a chance to process, much less address her newly emerging feelings for Dylan, he was already head-over-heels . . . for someone else, and that would be his undoing.
Love is never easy, especially when ultimately it will demand your blood.
