Advertising Exec, Clarity Parker thought she'd never see Baron Ford again. Five years ago, they shared the date of her life and then he literally vanished into thin air. Now he's back and has asked that she, exclusively, be assigned to his multi-million dollar account. On the day the fog rolls in, not only can she no longer avoid him but she can no longer avoid herself. See, Clarity has an ability that she's run away from her entire life. She's learning an ability like hers doesn't come for free, and something or someone is trying to make her pay for it with her life. Her world is soon turned upside down after she escapes to a place called Enu. It's here Clarity learns who and what she truly is. She also learns that Baron Ford is Baron Ze Feldis; he's a vampire, and what bonds them runs deeper than anything she can ever imagine. One thing's for sure, from this point on, their lives will never be the same.
Zillael hates high school and the tiny one horse town she lives in. She has no friends and no social life, both by choice. All of that changes the afternoon the fog rolls in and she soon finds herself face to face with three parched vampires. She soon comes to realize that her boring, small town life is not what it seems and finds herself falling in love with two very different supernatural creatures. But on the day the fog rolls back into town, she finds herself on the verge of discovering who and what she truly is.
A sense of duty takes Clarity back to the script where she learns there's a new breed of vampires in the world, stemming from Lario Exgesis, once friend now foe. These second-generation vampires are able to hunt and feed off the first- generation vampires. Clarity also sees that Lario is looking for the power of the sun, a power gifted to the seven daughters of the House of Benel. But to find it first, she needs the full power of light, which she shares with Baron Ze Feldis, the vampire who broke her heart.
