I ain't running. And I sure as hell ain't hiding. But that vow brings consequences that Dante Baptiste - True Blood vampire, Fallen Maker, rock musician - never imagined. Now that the Fallen have finally found their long-awaited Maker, they have no intention of letting him walk away. Dante Baptiste's vow brings him face to face with those hunting both him and his lover, former FBI agent Heather Wallace - the covert Shadow Branch, the vampire Cercle de Druide, and rogue assassins - as he attempts to finally claim his life as his own, while dealing with the awakened and shattered memories of his brutal past. An unexpected enemy arises from within Heather's family, one who nearly destroys Dante by stealing the one thing that keeps him balanced; Heather. As Dante searches for Heather, all worlds - mortal, vampire, and Fallen hang in the balance and his success or failure will determine whether he becomes the never-ending Road or the Great Destroyer.
