Sam Sein feeds on Amelia while at a bar with Torg and finds her dead the next day. When she awakens as a vampire, he believes that he was the one who sired her. However, Torg recalls that Lysinda circle vampires take three days to sire; Amelia, who rose in only one night, is a Vrykolakas.
Amelia tries to get Arminius Vambrey to mistake Sam for Grabrijan so he'll kill Sam and stop hunting Grabrijan. However, Arminius immediately realizes that Sam is a Lysinda-circle vampire, ruining the plan. Arminius then stakes Amelia, destroying her.
