For Reina Caraway, being human does have its drawbacks when she is born in Le Couvnte, a Northern California city made up entirely of vampires and werewolves. While she feels like an outsider (and sometimes dessert) in her high school, Reina also struggles at home with the mixed blood of her family. With her vampire brother and father and werewolf brother and mother, daily life becomes a dangerous challenge. On her shoulders is the promise of an ancient prophecy foretelling she will be the future Queen of Le Couvnte, Reina grapples with her evolving humanity by day and by night, paralyzing nightmares of the murders occurring all around Le Couvnte. When a vampire is found drained on the outskirts of the city, it is up to Reina and her dreams to help the Council discover the murderers identity. Reina also attracts the attention of the most powerful vampire in her high school; Skip White. However, what she feels for him is complicated by the presence of her vampire childhood guardian, Raoul Kelley. Then, Reinas true nature and purpose unfolds through the revelation of her growing abilities. Suddenly she discovers she can manipulate water, fly, and hear the tiny speck of a raindrop fall from far away. When the deaths continue to grow closer to Reinas inner circle, she realizes she must have the courage to not only accept her purpose but to embrace it.
