plant. But tragedy strikes and Shane is captured. With nothing to do to
help him, they do the unthinkable. They leave him there, thinking that

Shane has always been a

Only time will tell, or in this case, the next book.

Ever since the draug—mysterious creatures that prey
on vampires—took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers
and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the town’s
residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have chosen

Using the city’s water system to spread, the
