“The hotel room was comfortable but sparse. The window overlooked St Mary Redcliffe, lights played tantalisingly on the seemingly ancient stones in the pitch black. An almost unnatural darkness thanks to the winter gloom in the night sky. As the cold night drew further in, I wondered quite what I was doing in Bristol at all, and what had called me back. Because something most definitely had called me back, there was no mistaking that. It had been many years since I was last in this city, and with a big world ahead of me I had planned on never returning.”
Something has called Constance Smith back to Bristol, England. Over a hundred years earlier she had been exiled from the community of her fellow Creatures residing under the streets of the city. But now she has to once more join the society of werewolves and vampires that prowl the darkness. And as events unfold around her, Connie finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew about her past.
