Elizabeth de Maigne is a Predator, a creature of long-life who preys on mortal beings. Long ago, she thought her greatest enemy vanquished. Now, however, the evil, once trapped, has been freed, and Elizabeth must take his destruction in hand herself, not to mention figure out what to do with the delectable Prey sitting in her basement.
Adam Montrose is the very human museum curator who inadvertently unleashes this powerful evil. His fate is in the hands of a monster with an angelic face. Forcibly ‘rescued’ from becoming the awakened Avatar’s first meal in five millennia, Adam must learn the depth of Elizabeth’s true humanity to save himself, and save her.
