Dr. Keira Wynter, an Anthropology professor and expert in the occult, agrees to assist with an investigation that has her returning to a place she vowed never to set foot in again.
In one night, Salem has lost its oldest coven and the only defense to keep the gates to Hell closed. The city, a haven for Witches, Vampires and Demons who hide in plain sight, is now under threat. No one is safe as the body count piles up, and Keira must work with Ryker Kincaid, the local sheriff, to find out who’s targeting the city’s most powerful Witches and why.
As Keira and Ryker begin to unravel the mystery, they discover things are not as they seem. A deadly force in play; a force willing to sacrifice anything and everything that gets in its way.
With each step closer to the truth, Keira not only needs to deal with the ghosts of her past, but also contend with her attraction to Ryker, the Vampire she is inexplicably drawn to.
With time running out, can Keira and Ryker stop the killings before the Crossroads gate opens and save the lives of not only those they love, but the lives of eight billion strangers?
