The Morretti twins Lucca and Gabriele are nothing alike in personality. Lucca is known as a hot head talented with a sword, whereas Gabriele is the peacemaker proficient with a bow. As with most wealthy Roman families they aren’t without enemies. They never expected anyone to hate them so much that their family home would be blown to bits killing the twins’588 parents and younger sister. The brothers turn to a friend of their father’s in the city for aid.
Growing up Gabriele knew that he had to keep his wicked desires for his brother a secret. Lucca also did his best to hide his feelings for his twin as well as hiding certain talents that would label him a witch. Meeting Master Lorik is an eye opening experience. Lorik doesn’t care what they do in the bedroom and he’s already aware that Lucca is a mage. The twins are now in the home of a Master vampire.
A new world is shown to the brothers, one where they will have to make the decision to become a vampire. Lucca is hell bent on avenging the family, Gabriele as well though he worries for his eternal soul. It seems destiny was waiting for Lucca and Gabriele. For one it’s an easy decision. For the other… the only thing certain is that they won’t be parted. In this lifetime or the next.
The Beginning: Shadowkings 1 plunges readers into a world of incestuous love, vampires, and revenge. It’s quite the bloody package. The brothers’ damning love condemns them, which is a major plot point in this wild adventure. The Beginning is an erotic thriller laying the foundation for a new exciting series. Incredibly carnal, Shadowkings 1 is just the beginning.
