A MEETING OF MASTERS

Crimson is the Night

A Vampire Novelette
by Beverley Lee & Nicole Eigener

Vampires are, by nature, mainly solitary creatures. Master vampires even more so.

Vauquelin and Clove have never met, though they have orbited each other for centuries. Together with Clove’s Bloody Little Prophets, who are already spinning their own dark narrative, this night will see their perception of each other change.

Because even those whose existence is legendary, desire to know the truth.

A companion novelette to Beguiled By Night from Nicole Eigener and the Gabriel Davenport series from Beverley Lee. Spoilers for all books.
