An invincible, almighty, sublimely beautiful predator… Is he capable of discerning his equal in his prey? Is he capable of love? And if so... will it be of the human kind?
Diana sure has a strange childhood. She's of no use to her respectable and rather affluent family. The only thing that's required of her is silence. Not a word about the special guest that calls on her twice a year. Nothing about his terrifying visits or his impossibly, unimaginably cold demeanor. He is her dirty little secret. Her tormentor. And, as Diana will soon come to realize, the master of her destiny...
But even when there are no choices, a choice still exists. And Diana chooses freedom.
Prepare to experience the whole gamut of emotions first-hand: the suffocating grip of horror, the roaring flame of hatred, the sweet pangs of love and the bitter taste of betrayal... Prepare to feel despair, despondency and loss--all to discover a new, reborn self...
Prepare to live Diana's life in her stead.
