Megara is getting ready for a wedding, and the bride is a vampire. Let the Blood Plague begin. As her thirteenth birthday approaches, Ava, Princess of Megara, knows her upcoming marriage to Wolfstan will plunge her into hell. A raging storm and the incessant scratching sounds on her castle window pane threaten to drive her insane. Ava relents, throws open the window, and submits to Evil. She is now one of the Clan of Ichor. There is only one man in the kingdom who can save her – the aging sorcerer and alchemist, Perdix. But Perdix has many secrets and the strength of his magic is waning. Perdix seeks help from Fye, a witch who lives outside the castle walls. Even with her aid, their magic may not be strong enough. Can the aged wizard rescue Ava? Or will the Ichor turn Perdix into one of their own?
