Eastern Europe, 1885—a brutal, unforgiving region.
Painful memories and an irresistible pull west finally make the decision for Russian beauty Magda Golya. With a ticket provided by a mysterious benefactor, she soon finds herself on a ship headed for the New World along with a companion she hadn’t expected. America…a land with the promise of new life in the form of a Carolina plantation owned by a reputable southern gentleman.
Despite the grandeur of the place, she soon discovers there are even worse things in the world than what she’d already experienced. Brutality is not confined to the Old Country alone, savagery not the sole domain of wild animals, and evil not a trait unique to the minions of Hell.
But Magda has the means to make a difference, and what’s more—she wants to. A rather strong realization for a vampire.
