But when Stevie Rae Changes into the first Red Vampyre, the undead fledglings blue crescent moon tattoos change to color of bright red and they get back their humanity. Red fledglings were created by Neferet a corrupt High Priestess at the Tulsa House of Night, who resurrected dead fledglings. After their death, these fledglings lost their humanity. As resurrected beings with no humanity, they would kill their victims instead of taking just a little blood from them.

With her power, she commands him to do this and he shoots an arrow right into Stevie Rae's chest. The ground splits open and out comes Kalona. The red fledglings and blue fledglings, along with vampyres Erik Night and Darius, escape through the trap door in the east wall. They must call darkness around them and make themselves invisible. They get all the way to the Prohibition-era Tunnels under Tulsa and are safe there for now.
