Looking over the new inventory though he never bids on them, Bloodmaster Lord Ares is taken aback by the healthy educated human female as a young disease-free female is a unique prisoner especially these days of increasing shortage. His rivals obviously notice her too. He and vicious Lord Palemon of the feral Expansionist Party compete in the bidding war over the rebellious human until Ares concedes to his adversary. That is until his rival hits the woman, causing a stunning reaction by Ares to Challenge his opponent. Ares wins the woman due to her intervention while knowing there will be a to the death rematch. Meanwhile Trinity’s seduction plan of her Bloodmaster leaves her in love. The latest Nightsiders romantic fantasy (see Daysider and Nightmaster) is an action-packed thriller enhanced by the changing relationship between the Bloodmaster and his blood serf. Readers anticipate the second fight between the two powerful Opiri who represent the species' greater divide by the faction each belongs to; as Susan Krinard provides an exciting entry.
