England 1854

Elisabeth Sidwell crouched in the dense wooded area behind a Romanesque style castle. The rudimentary arches and turrets seemed inappropriate for the occupants. She had expected to find something of a more Gothic style, in keeping with the darkness of the predators within. The edifice was small by castle standards, yet, teeming with blood-sucking demons. Whether her intended quarry, Victor, was one of them remained uncertain. Regardless, this many undead at one location warranted investigation. If it were Victor's renegade army, she would share the information with the Exemplars and let his own kind deal with him. If not, her Elders would send a pack to surround the coven at the next full moon.

A carriage was rolling away when she reached her surveillance position. Although she could not see the passengers, the smell of vampire permeated the air. She stood and kicked up some leaves, cursing her luck. Leaving her post to bathe in the nearby stream may have cost her positive identification. Although her waist-length, mahogany-colored hair was still wet, she began braiding it, more as a distraction from self-admonishment than grooming.

She had sent her hunting partner, Josh, back to their encampment to leave word for her brother and his team to join them as soon as possible. Caution required many werewolves with superior strength be present before risking exposure. For now, she would only observe from a safe distance, and if Joshua had only stayed a bit longer, they would know if one of the occupants of that carriage was Victor.
