It’s the Halloween season; are you in the mood for some scary vampire reads?
If so, take a look at this preview and giveaway for a vampire urban fantasy duo ~ it includes publisher’s blurb, authors’ bios, and purchasing links, and the give away below.
Just remember these aren’t your amicable vampires, but the dark and scary variety.
Blood Song ~ Book one from the Blood Singer series
Blurb: Bodyguard Celia Graves has definitely accepted her share of weird assignments, both human and supernatural. But her newest job takes the cake. Guarding a Prince from terrorists and religious fundamentalists is hard enough, but it seems like the entire supernatural world is after this guy too. When she is betrayed by those she is employed to help, and everything goes horribly wrong, Celia wakes to find herself transformed.
Neither human nor vampire, Celia has become an Abomination—something that should not exist—and now both human and supernatural alike want her dead. With the help of a few loyal friends—a sexy mage, a powerful werewolf, and a psychic cop—Celia does her best to stay alive. On the run from her enemies, Celia must try to discover who is behind her transformation…before it’s too late.
- Paperback: 368 pages
- Publisher: Tor Books; First Edition edition (June 8, 2010)
*Mild Spoiler Alert Below* - you may not want to read the last paragraph of this blurb since it contains a mild spoiler from the first book.
Siren Song ~ Book two in the Blood Singer series
Blurb: Nothing if not resilient, Celia Graves is slowly adjusting to being a half-human, half-vampire Abomination. But her troubles are far from over. Her best friend’s murder is still unsolved, the cops are convinced she should be in jail, and her old lover, the magician Bruno DeLuca, has resurfaced in her life, saying he has something important to tell her.
The vampire attack that transformed Celia kicked her latent Siren abilities into high gear, and now she’s been summoned to the Sirens’ island to justify her existence—and possibly fight for her life—in front of the Siren Queen. Celia isn’t sure she’ll survive to make the trip. The demon she defeated in Blood Song hasn’t exactly gone quietly—he’s left Celia suffering from a powerful curse.
- Paperback: 384 pages
