Synopsis: In the vampire nation, the civil war Christian Brookwater sought to prevent has become a harsh reality. On one side stands the High Counselors. Once considered great and benevolent rulers, their web of deception has unraveled, revealing them to be nothing more than self-serving power mongers. To preserve their reign, the High Counselors have begun a bloody campaign that threatens to wipe out all of the monster races, starting with their own. These Founding Fathers of Vampirism are all gifted with extraordinary powers that surpass anything ever seen in the history of living monsters. There are four of these god-like creatures, but none as destructive and devious as High Counselor Emmanuel, a demon that can destroy another's life essence with the mere brush of his ominous left hand. All over the world, thousands of vampires stand ready to do Emmanuel's bidding, including a group that has embraced a doctrine that is frighteningly similar to the religious right-wingers found in the human world. Lord Ebichara Tanata leads the opposing army that seeks to overthrow the High Counselors. With Japan's deadliest samurai vampires willing to march into certain death at his word, Lord Tanata has fortified his numbers by joining forces with the rachasas, a race of shape-shifting cat people who have their own axe to grind with Emmanuel. As Christian helps Lord Tanata take on the High Counselors, he uncovers many horrible secrets. It's not long before Christian becomes a bigger target than his samurai mentor. What he finally discovers will not only change the course of the war, but will have a startling impact on everyone he cares about, including his unborn child.
