She wants revenge.

At sixteen, Bay-Lee is not your typical girl. The last thing she wants is to be popular, to be noticed, so she never raises her hand in class. She doesn’t participate in extra-curricular activities and purposely puts the wrong answers on tests in order to keep her solid C point average. Her classmates have no clue who she really is, Van Helsing’s daughter. They don’t know she’s on the run, hiding from monsters that want to kill her before she can turn into a great hunter. They’re afraid of her... and they should be because she plans to be the best hunter the world has ever seen. As soon as she is finished with her training, she’s going to track and kill the werewolf pack responsible for tearing her mother to shreds, and nothing is going to get in her way.

He wants redemption.

At twenty, Nick is a rock star slash vampire hunter, personally trained by Van Helsing. He was unofficially adopted by the man and lives in his castle when not touring with his band, Bad-Rock. Years ago his fate was sealed by a fortune teller. She shouted a prophecy for everyone (including his parents) to hear, a prophecy that has haunted him to this day. Even his closest friends wonder if it could be true. Will he become evil and open the doorway to the Spirit Realm, allowing monsters to kill off the human race?

They both want love...

Bay-Lee thinks the last thing she needs is to fall in love, and Nick doesn’t think he’s capable of loving anyone. When they meet, it is hate at first sight. Nick seems determined to ruin her plan for justice. He volunteers to mentor her. Then he refuses to do the job. Bay-Lee has no idea what Nick’s problem is, but she’s determined to find out because she is certain they have a lot in common. The deep grief and anger in his eyes reflects what is in her heart. She has a feeling they can save each other. The only problem is she can’t have both Nick and her revenge. Which will she choose?

but will they live long enough?

Trouble begins when a reaper uses Bay-Lee’s closet to cross over with a warning. Something is killing hunters on their birthdays. It’s a bad time to attend Van Helsing’s school, but she doesn’t have a choice. Her mother died in front of her eyes. She must have revenge even if it means risking everything including her own life. A student dies. Then another. Nick’s birthday draws closer, and Bay-Lee worries about losing the only boy she’s ever loved. Is she a good enough hunter to stop the monster before it strikes again?
