"As a boy, Abyssian 'Sian' Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster--just as she’s been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell. Princess Calliope 'Lila' Barbot’s people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for aeons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can’t remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good. As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast’s cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war?" -- Page  cover.

Jade is in St Severa's Catholic boarding school in the wilds of Cumbria. She is hiding from her mad-scientist father, Kobal, who is on the run from half the police forces of the world for illegaly experimenting in genetics to create a new breed of perfect human. Jade is part of his personal project, one of his own seven special children born of seven different surrogate mothers. But even St Severa's isn't safe. Driven by his obsession with gathering the children together, Kobal can read Jade's mind. He has five - he needs Jade, and her help to find the seventh. Only the arrival of Benedict, claiming to be Kobal's brother, saves her from Kobal's clutches. In a race to find the missing seventh child before Kobal does, Benedict sweeps Jade on a fantastic train journey across Europe to the mountainous land of Dracula legend. From the empire of the dead in the Paris catacombs, to a lost Romanian monastery on a remote mountain crag, the final journey takes them to the climax in a ruined castle of Transylvania. And the abyss at its heart.
