Those left behind in the city begin the fight in earnest. Vampires, emboldened by no longer needing to hide, begin gathering humans to keep as livestock; the Order of the Dragonfly attempts a rescue mission to stop them. Luther’s pack picks up a small child and evades the torches and pitchforks of some zealous mortals. The Last Resort becomes a hotly contested battleground as tensions inside run high. Police chief Ron Luther and Detective Emil Hernandez are pinned down at a gas station by vampires, hoping for a miracle to escape. And the Phoenix Court comes under attack by wizards who want the fae magic for themselves. When the night is over, who will be left standing, and how will the city change?
