Human psychic Eric McAllister has a life-changing experience when he meets 500 year old vampire, Keenan von Klein. Intrigued by Eric, Keenan decides to take him home. Within a matter of days, Eric and Keenan are in love. Before the two can cultivate their bond, chaos in the paranormal community breaks out. The paranormals have a traitor in their midst and everyone is in danger, including Eric.

Destinies in Darkness, Part 1 Kaldor Saga 3 is a superb romantic suspense. The setting is New York. The building plot is well paced. The engaging storyline centers on finding the culprit among a cast of fairies, demons and shifters as well as vampires. The characters are convincing. The intimate scenes are breathtaking. Being a vampire, Keenan has never experience love or jealousy. Before meeting Eric, Keenan considered humans as simply prey. Now he is torn between sending Eric away for his safety or keeping him with him so that he can personally protect Eric. Keenan also must find out who sent the hunters to kill the paranormals.

Eric has an abusive past, which he learned to mostly block from his memory. As the story unfolds, Eric’s past is revealed. Art is Eric’s only lifeline until he meets Keenan. The bond Eric and Keenan share is heartwarming and at times amusing. Scarlet Hyacinth has created a fantastic saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
