Very good paperback copy.
A tale of the Vampire King's tragic love and its consequences Thousands of years ago, Vampire King Akabara "Red Rose" Strauss lost both his kingdom and his queen. Since humans were unable to kill the queen, they sealed her away, erecting thousands of fake seals so that the king would never find her true location. Despite being pursued by relentless dhampires, Akabara continues to search for his queen to this day... Despite a solemn promise never to do so, Adelheid decides she must reveal who really killed Stella. The revelation is a shock, but not to Strauss, who found out long ago not only who the murderer was but what had prompted such a heinous act. But can any of this really matter with Earth facing an imminent alien invasion?
