Hope is in short supply, but courage runs deep as the Salamancan hunters recover from a devastating loss. Jenn knows she must rally her team against the Cursed Ones, but her focus is shattered. She's torn between passion for Antonio, who once fought by her side, and hate for the bloodthirsty vampire he's become. His volatility is tearing apart their team . . . and Jenn's trust. As the Cursed Ones amass new strength, Team Salamanca must stick together if they hope to survive, let alone defend humanity. Jenn wants to believe Antonio's loyal to their cause -- and their love -- but she's slowly losing her heart to Resistance fighter Noah. And if Antonio's not careful, he may just end up with a stake in his. I'd be lying if I wrote that I'm not afraid to die. I'm terrified. I'm even more afraid that I'll die without seeing Antonio one last time. Father Juan says we're meant to be together, but I just don't see how. Is there a life after this one? Can we be together then? -- from the diary of Jenn Leitner, discovered in the ashes.
