Sixteen-year-old Hannah goes to a psychologist to understand the meaning of her the notes she keeps finding — in her own handwriting. “Dead before 17,” “He’s coming,” “Watch out.” Only under hypnosis is their cryptic meaning revealed.
Hannah is actually an Old Soul, a girl who has been reincarnated many times and can remember her past lives. And in every one of them, the fair-haired stranger appears — and Hannah loves him — and Hannah dies at age 16.
Meanwhile, the leader of all the vampires of Circle Daybreak, all those who have human soulmates, Lord Thierry, is searching. He’s looking for her — the girl he loved and accidentally killed thousands of years ago.
Who will find Hannah first — her vampire soulmate, or Maya, the first of all the vampires who has murdered Hannah a thousand times to keep her from Thierry. And who will Hannah believe when they do find her?
