Even vampires can have souls. In the version of the world in which Shadows on the Soul takes place, vampires possess immortal spiritual life forces, together with their mostly immortal bodies. Major life traumas leave scars, and souls can become just as disfigured as flesh. From official release/information:
Book Description: Gabriel is a five hundred year old vampire with the soul of a Killer. He has defeated his mother in a battle for the territory of Baltimore, and vowed to take vengeance upon his father, the Master of Philadelphia, for a centuries-old betrayal.
Jezebel, Gabriel's new fledgling, is a soul as scarred as his own, yet Gabriel finds that the ice around his heart slowly melts when she is near. But one of Gabriel's ancient enemies has targeted her--and if Gabriel wants to save her, he will have to abandon his plans for revenge and join forces with his father.
The question is not whether or not Gabriel can redeem himself from his past, but whether he can ever forgive himself…
