Canoir MacBaine is a pariah amongst all the Kinds. Not only will his blood kill both vampire and werewolf, but on the full moon his world is turned upside down when he becomes the accursed Beast. A mindless killing machine, he’s nearly given up hope of ever finding the woman who can break the curse hanging over his head, until a threat greater than the hex he suffers from threatens the Borderlands.
Alexandra Common is the last of the royal strigoi bloodline. Despite her gifted ancestors, Alexandra is no great wielder. She is, sadly, not much of anything in the dynamic that is the chaotic strigoi court. That is, until she meets a man who is not only both werewolf and vampire, but also is the Beast from the legendary tale. Reluctantly, she must come to terms with the fact she is the Beauty meant to break the spell tormenting Canoir.
From Falstaff Manor to the Borderlands, Alexandra and Canoir will race against time and a threat greater than the Borderlands to save not only the Kinds, but each other.
