Kerrigan thinks himself pure evil but strangely he finds himself strongly attracted to the plain young woman he holds captive, yet unwilling to hurt her. Seren struggles with her attraction to such an evil man. Eventually the two become lovers, and Seren becomes pregnant. Knowing the child of Seren and Kerrigan would be extremely powerful, Morgen decides she must kill Kerrigan, let Seren live to birth the child, and then kill her as well. To his surprise, Kerrigan finds he wants to defeat Morgen not only to save himself but to protect his lover and child, a feeling he has never felt before. And Seren, determined to protect her unborn baby, has discovered she has magical powers of her own, from a heritage she never knew of. However Morgen is extremely powerful with no known weakness and defeating her will not be easy.
