"Narain Khan was 25 when he left his family in India to fight in the Great War. Dreaming of being a successful chef in Europe, his fate was to be different to what he hoped it would be. Cruelly cut down by shrapnel in the no-man's land of the Western Front, his nightmare was only beginning. Set upon by a pack of crazed, feral vampires, he awoke into an eternal night as a sentient vampire, able to move in society, and feed without killing the host: but eternally imprisoned, never to see the sun again. Now 90 years later, Narain has reached a crossroads: The recent death of his long-term partner and food source, his growing attraction to a microbiologist who has a link to his past and a discovery that will affect all vampires, the re-emergence of two ghosts from his past and a new, terrifying breed of Vampire, Boris, will all test his belief in himself and draw him into a climactic struggle against the monsters without and within. For to touch the sun, you have to avoid being burned up in its fury"--Back cover.
