Nastasya has spent the last century living as a spoiled, drugged out party girl, numbing herself to forget the violent and fatal tragedy that robbed her of her birthright--and her entire family. She feels nothing and truly cares for no one, until one night, when she witnesses her best friend, a Dark Immortal, torture a human. And her world is ripped apart.
She flees her "friends" and seeks refuge at a rehab for wayward immortals, where she meets a gorgeous, undeniably sexy immortal (can we say Viking god?), who seems inexplicably linked to her past. Nastasya finally begins to deal, actually care about life, and feel safe. But when she discovers the Dark Immortals are after her, she suspects that danger may be closer than she ever imagined.
