Washington, D. C., 2042. Toby Jameson is accustomed to being overshadowed by his brother Nick, but he doesn’t have to like it. While attending the funeral of the First Lady of the United States, he finds a kindred spirit in Andrea Daniels, the President’s daughter. When Nick discovers Andrea’s supernatural destiny as a latent leader of the Sentinel race, Toby is happy to accept a secret assignment to protect her as she leaves the Armistice Zone, if only to gain a little distance from his relationship with his lover, Layla.
Layla, the leader of the Daywalker race, has had three thousand years to earn her reputation as the Prince of Wrath. Her romance with the strong-willed young Sentinel has been contentious at best, but neither is willing to walk away nor give voice to a deeper commitment. When her protective overtures go awry prior to Toby’s departure, provoking them both into frank combat, it seems their relationship is finally doomed. Then a shocking discovery changes everything, casting the very nature of Sentinels and Daywalkers into question.
In the wake of her mother’s death, Andrea returns to England to escape the watchful eye of her estranged father. When Toby shows up on her doorstep unannounced, she knows he has a secret agenda, but is willing to overlook his secrets in the spirit of friendship that kindled between them at their last meeting. But nothing stays secret forever, and it’s only a matter of time before they find themselves fighting for their lives against both the enemy they know, and a new menace that has emerged from within the virtual world.
