A young woman cursed with immortality. A man driven by hate. Brought together by one bloody massacre, can they both find peace?
Pittsburgh, 1776. Raven Walker worries about her father's enlistment in the Continental Army. But before he can report for duty, the thirteen-year-old girl witnesses him and the rest of her family die at the hands of a savage creature of the night. And as she awakens to discover she's been bitten and is starving for blood, the nightmare only gets worse when she finds herself captured by a revenge-obsessed hunter.
James Deland is determined to slay the vampire who took his son's life. And the newly turned child he's caught seems like the perfect weapon. But as he trains the young monster in the art of killing, he's stunned to feel a growing sense of fatherly affection.
Confused and desperate for connection, Raven clings to the vengeful man despite him forcing her to do the unspeakable. And when James locates the fiend responsible for his misery, he's torn between putting his ward in danger and giving up his quest for retribution.
Can this impromptu family resist the call of corruption, or will they descend into horrific evil?
Birth Into Darkness is the tense first book in the Raven dark historical fantasy series. If you like morally gray characters, fast-moving plots, and bittersweet endings, then you'll love WJR Parks' spellbinding tale.
