Gray Donahue is crippled by the guilt he feels for his father’s death. An Impure vampire cursed with the ability to hear the thoughts of others, he indulges in blood and sex to stave off the pain of his existence. He is then abducted by the Eternal Order of Vampires, who subject him to a nightmarish ritual. But when he is rescued by the icy pureblood vampire Dillon, he finds something that is worth living for, dying for, killing for...
I have always had a soft spot for Gray. The life he's had, the hard times he's endured. This is a great short story of Gray and Dillon. I recommend all Mark of the Vampire fans to read this. I am interested to see where his life goes from here. It grabbed me from the very first page, lots of action and leaves you wanting more.
