But she stumbled across what she had thought to be an impossible reality. Vampyres are real, and now she’s one of them.Persuading humanity to make Science their new god, Vampyres themselves propagated the myth that they were supernatural -- just another fanciful dream. Driven to the brink of extinction during The Inquisitions, they hide behind science, using it to manipulate our perceptions and prosper their agendas. They own the blood banks and run the global banking system. They administrate The Genome Project. Determined to force their re-speciation, they’ve been hybridizing with humans. They’ve discovered the gene that imparts telepathy, and they’ve concentrated it in Erinn. They think they own her too, but the handler they assigned to see she remained accessible for their project has other ideas.Michael Stuart is the deadliest vampyre ever to walk the earth, and all he wants is Erinn. The provirus mediating transition to vampyre makes those who share blood bonds part of one another. Bonded by blood to Erinn, Michael cant stop thinking with her -- or about her. He has fallen in love. Placing himself in peril, hes shifted his alliance and become her guardian. But those who engineered her creation will stop at nothing to keep her genetics available to The Speciation Project. The attraction between Michael and Erinn is seismic but she loves Michaels son, Paeter, who is her bloodsire. Bitter past rivalries challenge Michael and Paeter as they come to terms in order to protect her from the clan patriarchs who created her for their own ends. Erinn might be the grail of redemption for Michael ad Paeter, or the bitter cup of damnation for human kind.The second book in The Vampyre Episodes, Beacon scintillates with bold sexuality while it confronts issues of gender perception and equality and addresses the nature of reality and loves power to transform the beloved.
