In the village of Tiffauges in France, eighteen year-old Coco De Rais defies her widowed father’s wishes and goes exploring in a cellar beneath the grounds of the chateau that she shares with him. Though she does not know it, her actions unleash a terrible daemon, the vampire Lucius De Rais. Simultaneously, on Inis Mor, one of Ireland’s Aran Islands, nineteen year-old Caleb Flaherty, heartbroken by the sudden death of his parents, grieves with his grandmother, Budgie, his only living relative. An astute and beautiful woman, Caleb’s grandmother is bestowed with the gift of what she calls her natural magic. A gift that Caleb himself possesses, though he has refused to acknowledge it, yet. When Caleb meets the mysterious Henri de Rais as he disembarks from the daily ferry from the mainland, he is curious as to why such a stranger has come to this small island, where nothing much of anything ever happens. Though sickly in appearance, Henri asks to be taken to Arkyne House, a peculiar place which has been empty for decades; an ominous blot on the pastoral landscape of the island. Soon after, on the eve of Hallowe’en, on the cliffs of Dun Aonghusa, Caleb is mesmerized and instantly smitten by the beautiful girl he encounters there; Coco, standing too close to the cliff edge, and deeply troubled, he soon learns that she is Henri’s daughter. Instantly drawn to one another, Caleb’s sadness and grief begins to lift, but when Budgie hears of Henri's presence, she warns Caleb to stay away from him, for through the annals of her ancestor, Aoife Mullen, Budgie knows that it is not the first time a De Rais has set foot on Aran, and with an overpowering sense of déja vu, she feels a storm brewing. As the vampire, Lucius de Rais, possesses Coco’s father Henri, compelling him to harm his own daughter, Budgie's fears for the young ones are realized as they become entwined in a frightening ordeal that links them forever through the historical legacy of their bloodlines.
