Unwilling to accept this fate, she enlists the help of Kendrick MacDugall, a Scotsman and Etienne’s second in command. Kendrick becomes her friend, trainer and mentor. Although Lexie vows revenge, she will never give up on Etienne. She will find a way to return him to the light side.

At that point she started reading every vampire novel she could find, particularly loving Anne Rice, Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton.
