By Christopher Pike
After five thousand years she was again mortal.
The dead alchemist's experiment has worked. Alisa is no longer a vampire, but a frail and confused human. Not only that -- she is pregnant. The baby grows in her at supernatural speed. As the stranger watches. The stranger from the past.
But what child will Alisa's seed produce?
A demon or an angel? Alisa does not know.
But the stranger does. He knows everything that ever was.
And he knows everything that is to be.
