Even in Shyish, the benighted Realm of Death, life goes on. Life of a sort, anyway... Within the kingdom of Nulahmia, ruled by the Blood Queen Neferata, two rival vampire families may yet join as one – for the heirs to their thrones have fallen in love and would be wed. When Karya Treveign and Evered Halorecht seek Neferata's blessing, the Blood Queen sees an opportunity to further her own plans, and a wedding is arranged... one destined to end in tragedy.

In Nulahmia, two vampires, Karya Treveign and Evered Halorecht, the scions of two powerful soulblight houses seek permission to wed from their overlord, Neferata, the Mortarch of Blood. Although she grants their plea, the Grand Chapel of Night’s Hunger will see blood flow beyond the formal ceremony that unites two young lovers. [1]


Darkness is the key, Mereneth. Look to the darkness in which your enemy operates, that shrouds a rival, that lives in the heart of a friend. Then find a deeper darkness, and use it. Always seek the darkness. Always go deeper
