Amedeo is Cruxim, an immortal fallen angel destined to seek redemption as a vampire hunter, quenching his insatiable hunger on their blood. But when the object of his passion, the novice nun Joslyn–his beautiful charge with whom he has fallen in love–is kissed by darkness and joins the leader of a powerful vampire coven, Amedeo’s worlds collide. Shattered by the loss of his beloved, he vows to rid the world of vampires once and for all, even if that seems hopeless, even if it means destroying Josyln in the process. But he cannot do it alone. Can he even do it at all?
Joining him on his quest to rid the world of the undead is Sabine–a guardian. Half-woman, half-lioness, she is a Sphinx who has been protecting humans from vampires since the dawn of time. Although immortal ever after, she is pursued by an evil scientist, Dr. Claus Gandler, who knows the secret of her mythological past and her immortality and vows to torment her for eternity or destroy her forever. When the two are captured and paraded as the focus of Dr. Gandler’s Circus of Curiosities, will Joslyn prove their redemption, or their nemesis?
A powerful gothic paranormal game of cat and mouse, Cruxim explores the beast within and the sacrifice, rapture, redemption, and regrets of eternal love.
