All Tristan wants is to be with Anna, but there’s never enough time. Testing for a cure during the day and playing the part as an Elder at night has kept him busy. Not to mention Anna's unusual gift to heal him has taken its toll on his emotions. The effect is temporary. As much as he loves feeling human, it’s the descent back into darkness he abhors. Distancing himself from the woman he loves wasn’t the answer, and now she’s gone missing. Will he be able to find her before the collective does? And if so, will she even remember who he is?
