Book 1 in the Billi SanGreal series.
Forget vampires, fifteen-year-old Billi SanGreal is the most kick ass weapon-wielding heroine around.
Dragged at the age of ten into the modern-day Knight Templar by her father the Grand Master Billi is the first girl ever to be a warrior and there is no sacrifice her father will not make in his war against the Unholy.
Billi hates the Order, and she hates her father too. Her life is a rigorous and brutal round of weapons' practice, demon killing and occult lore- and a lot of bruises.
Tempted by a chance to live a different kind of life and reject everything her father wants her to be, she learns to her horror that she may have unwittingly brought down the Tenth Plague upon humanity- the death of all first born.
Faced with choosing her destiny, she soon realizes that even death may be no escape
