Seanna Raines is on a journey of self-discovery. Only her search does not include college applications or finding a cool summer job. After killing Samuel Bolvayne, the ‘man’ she fears and loves, Seanna is not looking for who she is, but rather what she will become.
Samuel spent countless lifetimes trying to forge a companion like himself, but his previous attempts were considered failures. Until Seanna. She is his first true success… and his ultimate undoing. Now, without Samuel to guide her, Seanna is lost. To survive, she needs to find out what her transformation means: super strength, the ability to smell human emotions, and an ever-increasing need to devour human souls. Seanna travels to Samuel’s earthly homeland, along the coast of South Africa, in search of answers. Here, she encounters several of his failed experiments, who claim to know the truth. These abominations lead her into a sinister world of chaos and destruction, where the birthplace of evil is revealed.
Seanna clings to the last piece of her humanity while struggling to accept her feelings for Samuel and what she has done to him. Just as Seanna embraces her fate, she is forced to choose between life as an immortal with the one she loves or sacrifice it all to save a world that does not deserve saving.

But when she accepts his first gift, a delicate black butterfly, her life is irreversibly changed.
Seanna’s newfound dream becomes a nightmare as a plague of death falls upon her family and friends. As the body count rises, her collection of black butterflies grows. With increasingly vivid nightmares, and the color fading from her eyes, Seanna suspects the man of her dreams is the one destroying her life. Never sure if she is awake or dreaming, she struggles to find the truth. Samuel might succeed in creating another immortal, but can he survive Seanna’s wrath.
