Samantha Marquet isn't afraid of the trench coat-clad stranger. She recognizes his presence the moment they meet in the alley, though he's never approached her before. Not until that night.
Once the Shadow Watcher shows his face, Sam can't chase him from her thoughts. Not even over breakfast with her gorgeous boyfriend. The more she tries to carry on with her normal routine, the more the dark stranger haunts her.
She doesn't have long to wait for answers. The Shadow Watcher appears again to save her from a pervert wielding a gun, and she finally realizes she's seen his face once before - at her father's funeral. And, he hasn't aged a day in the seventeen years since.
While enemies Sam never knew existed continue conspiring against her, the Shadow Watcher ultimately reveals the truth. After being sent to destroy them, he changed his loyalties, swearing an oath to protect the Marquet family, their future heirs and the secret they've kept safe for centuries. The very secret holding the key to his youth - something so precious, the most powerful men on Earth would risk their lives for it.
Everything Sam thought she knew about her history becomes question, but she has no time to process what she's learned. As those fighting to gain control of her inheritance are threatening those she loves, Sam is thrown into a world her parents went to great lengths to shield her from.
The past is a lie. The present is suspect. The future is in danger.
Enter the Society in the Shadow of Civilization, where what seems impossible today is already possible tomorrow.
