One day, months after the events in “Beyond the Shadows”, Michael and Celie receive a letter. Old in appearance but recently postmarked, this letter was a warning.
To the vampire –
You are an abomination. An unholy cursed thing. You bring evil to this world, and we mean to see your ruin.
Lest you forget who we are, we were born into this world centuries ago at the behest of those who would see your kind destroyed. There is no negotiating this. Our drive, our ambition is to see the end of you and all like you. No one can change this. We would see it culminate with your death and the death of all you ungodly creatures. Then we can finally take our leave.
Speak unto us and perish. Take us into thine eyes, and we will smite thee. Know that we will be the cause of your endless pain and infinite suffering. Your existence will be your undoing. Your days are finite. Take what little refuge you have in the time you have left – for we are coming.
