After turning his human lover into a vampire in Washington, D.C., upsetting the Dark Kingdom's delicate balance and exponentially increasing his own powers, Victor fled to post-Katrina New Orleans in order to escape the Dark Kingdom's justice, leaving his lover behind. Mere geography, however, cannot protect Victor from the Dark Kingdom's agents, who are hellbent on resetting the balance and stopping Victor's plans to become a vampire maker--at any cost. Father Charles Boisvert believes he has overcome his homosexual desires--that is, until troubled, young Kyle enters his confessional. Kyle is Victor's latest thrall, trapped to do Victor's bidding, desperate to escape yet loving his subservience. Charles is determined to save Kyle from Victor's control, even if it means giving in to temptation. While Charles and Victor battle for Kyle's soul, the Dark Kingdom's agents draw ever closer. The very thing that will give Victor the power to defeat them--transforming Kyle from thrall to vampire--will simultaneously free Kyle from Victor's control, yet doom his soul forever.
There are only two rules that govern the lives of vampires. First, vampires are forbidden to associate with one another. And second, vampires must depart to the Dark Kingdom upon creating a new vampire.Victor Decimus, once a Roman officer in the days of Jesus of Nazareth, has broken both of these rules. He and his former thrall Paul now live together as lovers, running an exclusive nightclub in Washington, D.C., that caters to those seeking to fulfill their darkest fantasies.Their life together will be short-lived, however, if agents of the Dark Kingdom have their way--using methods that test both the power and love of the vampire transgressors.
