Alex Kelley may have found the answers she was looking for when she came back to New York, but that was just a taste of things to come, a primer for the future. The window to her family history has just been shattered, and the secrets of the Fitheach clan have been unleashed. The Blood Thief continues the story as Alex and her enigmatic host, Greer Sinclair, are on the hunt for an elusive vessel that can only be opened by the power of the amulet. Contained within this vessel is a prophecy––one that could alter the world, good or bad depending on who gets to it first. The search will take them from the streets of Little Italy to the campus of Cornell University. There they meet the eccentric and brilliant Dr. David Oxford who sheds light on why the vessel has been nearly impossible to find. Could a mere mortal hold the key to finding it? Will an ambitious mafia princess ruin their plan? As the hunt heats up, so does the attraction between Alex and Greer. And as her unique birthright unfolds deeper at every turn, that attraction and the friendships she cherishes will be thoroughly tested. Alex isn’t the only one with secrets––some hard to believe; others simply unfathomable.
