A family forged in battle.

 

Amora Medina-Jackyl knew one thing well—vengeance. She’d inflicted pain without mercy to those who deserved the punishment. She’d lived by one motto her entire existence-- family was to be protected above all else. An ancient cult murdered her parents and siblings when she was little more than a child. The Order of Angelus hadn’t understood the Hell they’d brought down on themselves that one brutal night.

 

Amora was many things in her four centuries. A daughter and a sister, a mother, yet she was best known as a killer. When she finally meets her end, Amora will have hundreds, maybe thousands of lives to answer for. Her only wish is to find one moment of peace. She denies her need as much as she fights to protect it. When the one woman who can bring her serenity comes into her life: can Amora destroy century old walls to let her in?

 

Lies and conspiracies tear at the fabric of sanity—of what’s right. Can truths come to light that change the reality of a family who’s known only the taste of revenge and loss?

Love wasn't in the cards.


With his first cry, Rache "Ripper" Medina-Jackyl's fate was sealed. He was destined to become a parasite feeding off the misery of others to survive. Him and his mother, Amora fought to keep him free for as long as possible. Only so many battles could be won before they would lose the war. He had an eternity to fill, but the one thing he craved would never be his.


Tasha Cisco loved her job as a burlesque performer and sometimes bartender at Club Revenge. She was happy, if somewhat lonely, even with her huge family she'd acquired at the club. Secretly in love with her employer's son wasn't something she ever wanted to share especially with the too handsome Rache. As with most situations in her life eventually everything would explode in her face.

A vengeful demon, a dark age conspiracy theory and prophecy combine to throw a human's life into chaos. Rache and Tasha stubbornly fight fang and claw against what they both want. 

Can a human love a monster who thinks he has nothing to offer but centuries of misery and show him he's more than a prophecy foretold?
