When Ned Turner is out of luck after just losing his job and his twenty years of pension, he's recruited into a vampire war force by the sexy and powerful Imparateasa. This beautiful female vampire trains him in the vampire arts and magic. But blood satisfies Ned, now called Svitas, only so much. To satisfy his true cravings, he teaches himself to devour minds, before devouring flesh. He is doing damage, he is told, but when Imparateasa attempts to interfere, Svitas realizes his mind eating has made him more powerful than she is. Imparateasa finds herself trapped in Svitas's mind, a victim of her own pupil. She has to find a way out, but is there one?
