Justin Devereaux has always been different and not just in looks from his parents.  His interests run to the magical and mysterious while theirs seem very pedestrian and small.  The one thing that has always interested him and frightened them is the LaMascares Mansion.  The mansion has sat long, seemingly empty and abandoned, but Justin feels someone in it watching over him.  

When his best friend tells him that she has spoken to the mansion's inhabitant, a man with a smoky, compelling voice, Justin cannot keep away and he is launched on a path to an unstoppable destiny; a destiny written in his blood.
