Every child seeks to surpass their parents - it's only natural. Unfortunately for Randall Springfield and his 'brother,' their 'mother' is not yet ready to let that happen...and vampires are anything but natural. Centuries have passed since Lisel turned Randall Springfield. While Lisel herself was turned long ago, she has no intention of stepping aside and allowing her children their right of maturity. Instead, she strikes out at them, ultimately forcing Randall to take matters into his own hands. Accompanied by his human companion, Rose, and brother Knox and Swan, Randall sets out on a mission to destroy his maker...a mission that will take them from California to London and back.
