My Love Lies Bleeding is the first title in the three book series - the Drake Chronicles. Blood Feud and Hunt the Day will be released later in the year.
But Solange is the first female vampire to be born and her birth was the beginning of an ancient prophecy. The prophecy says the vampire tribes will be triumphantly united under the rule of a daughter born to an ancient family.
Solange is human like everybody else until she turns sixteen and goes through the transformation from human to vampire. When Solange is kidnapped, Lucy is ready to fight to get her best friend back. But Lucy is human and no match for the vampires. Or is she?
Could a human like Lucy rescue a vampire like Solange? This is a fast, action packed story. I was so swept up by the pace, I didn’t even realise when I was half way through and nearing the end.
