An opulent Carnivale ball in Venice takes a terrifying turn
for book critic Jordan Riley. As festivity turns into
frenzy, she is rescued by a powerful man disguised as a
wolf. But was what she witnessed really just the evening's
entertainment -- or something far more sinister?
From a deconsecrated church in Venice to a secret society
in New Orleans, Jordan is led on a nightmare journey to the
razor's edge of reality. Her mysterious savior is always a
shadow behind her. A man whose closeness will both torment
and tantalize her as darkness falls -- and an eternal
hunger threatens to consume her.
