Angels. Demons. Vampires. Which side would you choose?
17-year-old Nic FitzGerald sees demons but tries to avoid them by not looking at them. He hopes that if he doesn't knowledge them, then maybe they will not cause the destruction and death he saw before. Maybe they will leave him alone.
But it doesn't work.
They know who he is, and they want him as their warrior.
To make matters worse, the vampires want him. Nic finds he can't resist them, and he returns to their lair, drawn to their power and beauty.
But when angels protect his aunt and uncle, Nic finds himself thrown in the middle of a raging spiritual battle for his soul.
When his family and friends become the victims of the battle, Nic finally chooses to fight, even when he must walk the devil's pathway to slay his enemy.
Will he join the darkness to save those he loves or risk everything to fight with angels?
Born on the darkest moon, a warrior will appear.
Though washed from blood at birth,
he will be bathed in blood till death,
and his sword will slay all enemies who come near.

I force myself to live by one rule: Don’t look at the demons. The two times I broke this rule still haunt me. Tonight I made another mistake. As a huge demon leered at us, I couldn’t fight the urge. I looked. And he saw me.
Maybe it’s not a big deal. Nothing happened as my aunt sped beyond it in the car. Besides, I only have one year of high school left. I’ll be fine.
But I know exactly what could occur. I’ve seen it too many times.
Two men lurked with the demon I saw tonight. Evil clung to them, as if they had given their souls in exchange for something else. I shudder when I consider what they could be.
Where are the good guys? If there’s darkness, shouldn’t there be light? How come the angels don’t battle the demons if that is the case?
Or do they? Maybe there’s a war around me that I don’t see. I just want to be left alone, and after tonight, I don’t think that’s going to be a choice.
