'It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us Father and Son.' -Johann Schiller
Rune is on the cusp of death, content to let life go after living on the street for many years, but this all changes. Syrus Valerius, a vampire wandering the earth for hundreds of years, finds this young boy and offers eternal life.
Wakening as a vampire, Rune adjusts to having a place to call home and learning to control his thirst for human blood, as well as the new conflicts in his relationship with Syrus.
Eventually, Rune's past catches up with him, and both he and Syrus will need to learn more and more in order to protect themselves and the peace they've found, even if it means accepting help from others.
