Hosted by the Contessa della Trieste, an opulent Carnevale ball in Venice takes a terrifying turn for American book critic Jordan Riley.
As festivity turns into frenzy, Jordan is rescued by a powerful man disguised as a wolf.
But was the mayhem she witnessed - the blood, the fangs, the screams - truly just entertainment, or something far more sinister?
From a deconsecrated Venetian church to a secret society in New Orleans, Jordan is led on a nightmare journey to the razor's edge of reality.
Her mysterious saviour is always a shadow behind her, both tormenting and tantalising her, as Jordan discovers a world of predators and survivors, a new order of vampires - and an eternal hunger that threatens to consume her.
