Rayne McDonald is excited to embark on her newest mission for Slayer, Inc. — until she learns who her target is. It seems that the vampire consortium has contacted Slayer, Inc. and asked for help at bringing in some people they feel have committed treason against the consortium. If Slayer Inc. refuses to cooperate, the head of the consortium, Pyrus, will consider this a breach of their truce and an all-out war could begin. If Rayne refuses, Slayer Inc. will be forced to activate the nasty things placed in her body at birth to terminate her.
And why would Rayne refuse? She loves going after the bad vamps and bringing them to justice. The problem is, her targets are her twin sister, Sunny, and Sunny’s vampire boyfriend, Magnus – so not the bad vamps. It is up to Rayne and her boyfriend, Jareth, to get to Sunny and Magnus and warn them without alerting the consortium that Rayne is not attempting to fulfill her mission. When things go terribly wrong, Rayne is forced to embark on a journey to the underworld to bargain with Hades himself and the price he asks of her may cost her the one thing she cares about more than anything else.
