Severin was made to fight. Conceived as what the vampires call a mixed-blood when his vampire father raped his dreck mother over a century ago, Severin retained the power of iron skin inherent to newborn drecks. Sev keeps this secret closely guarded. If it's discovered that inferior dreck blood flows in his veins, it could destroy his life, which is already complicated enough. Not only has Sev's father made a sudden and unwelcome reappearance, but Sev suspects he's been marked by an assassin seeking blood vengeance. So when he falls for his teammate, Arion, a notorious playboy, that's the last thing Sev needs. 

Arion is the son of one of King Bain's liaisons. Ari's overbearing parents had his course plotted before he was even born, but what his parents want for him isn't what Arion wants for himself. After finding out his new teammate Severin is gay, Arion develops a fascination for him that goes beyond curiosity. Their racy encounter just a month before was no fluke, and Arion realizes he's been living a lie about his sexuality his entire life, forcing himself to be with females because that's what was expected of him. But what he wants is a male, and not just any male. Arion wants Severin. 

If Sev and Ari stand a chance at finding happiness with one another, they will have to confront prejudice, plotting, the threat on Sev's life, and even each other. But will it be too little too late? 

This book contains strong profanity and explicit, consensual sexual content between two males.
