In Book V of the Miranda Chonnicles, the Magus’ obsession to force the Mordecai family to bend to his will has driven him off the rails. He summoned Lady Jacquotte, a pirate vampire from the Mississippi Delta to help him with his latest drastic scheme. Most of the vampire world is appalled by his actions and a small cadre decides they must protect vampire society from his extreme actions.
Miranda, hating the vampire world drama, tries to take a lower profile, so her children can take their rightful place in undead society, as Leif struggles to adjust to being a newly transformed day-walking vampire.
The Magus’ actions force Miranda and Leif into roles they could never have imagined.
