Eric Logan is twenty-one, a physics major at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, and a geek. All he wants is to make it through college in one piece. If he can find a woman to share his life with, well, all the better, but he doesn’t hold out much hope of that happening. He’s learned the hard way that women find shy, safe men too boring to keep around for long.
While attending a party with his friend Devin, Eric meets the vampire Elizabet, who offers him a spot in her stable of blood slaves. Not long after, the lovely Gianna Brady walks into his life. With her in his heart and a job as a vampire’s pet, Eric finally has the life and love he’s always wanted and is eager to begin his journey through the hidden society he’s now a part of, a society where blood and sex are used to cement alliances and control the violent nature of the beast within.
The world of the Vampyr isn’t as easy to navigate as it appears, however, and Eric is soon lost in a whirlwind of obstacles and complications. Devin isn’t content with the friendship Eric craves; Marco, Elizabet’s favorite, has plans for his mistress’ newest pet that Eric isn’t keen on fulfilling; and the vampire queen needs a strong ally. As he struggles to find his place in this new world, Eric is pushed to the limits of his humanity and wonders if he’ll ever find his way back to it again, or if the monster he’s becoming will consume him and everyone he loves in its thirst for power and blood.
