Caleb reveals to Mercy that she’s not only a witch, but that she died in 1692, and is one of the universal elements born onto the earth, to rid the world of vampires who threaten mankind.

As Caleb tries to charm himself back into her life, Mercy begins to have visions of her past-life, and just how powerful she really is . . .and how dangerous he is.

This story takes you on a journey of love, friendship, betrayal, and abduction, in a world filled with witches, vampires and werewolves, which Mercy and her friends never knew existed.
