For my first recommendation, I choose Afterlight The first novel in "
by Elle Jasper.
Afterlight is to be released November, 2010.
"About the series: Riley Poe leads the series as a gritty, unconventional tattoo artist-turned-undead-slayer after her younger brother is lured into a gang led by a pair of vicious Romanian vampires. In books 1,2,and 3, Riley, a dead-sexy guardian vampire named Eli Dupre, his undead family and Riley's surrogate grandparents-who are not only Gullah root doctors but hoodoo conjurers as well--stalk the underside of Savannah, Charleston, and a trip to the Old World as they track the deadly Arcos vampires to Romania. The story unfolds through Riley's eyes in first person where you learn of Riley's torrid past, her desires, and her fears as she falls hard for Eli, becomes Victorian Arcos' obsession, and struggles not to become the very thing she fights: a vampire." - Elle Jasper's website.
Synopsis for Afterlight:
Blood is thicker than ink.
There is a reason we fear the night…
As Savannah's most unconventional tattoo artist, Riley Poe is quite familiar with the local underground scene. She lives and works on the edge of it every day.
Now, she's about to step over the edge.
When her younger brother is taken by a sinister cult led by centuries-old vampires, Riley discovers a world of shadows and blood--and those who exist there.
Her ally is the hot-tempered vampire Eli Dupre, who is attracted both to Riley's beauty as well as her one-of-a-kind blood type. A blood type he is not alone in craving.
To save her brother from certain un-death, Riley will face dangers she's never dreamed of, ruthless bloodthirsty enemies, and an evil of endless hunger that wants to devour all in its vile grasp.
Afterlight is the first of a series, and so far we know there will be two more books released called EVERDARK and EVENTIDE.
I cannot wait to read this series. I have an advanced copy in the mail, and I'm hyped!
I just know this series is going to be amazing. I will be having an interview with Elle Jasper within a couple weeks, so stay tuned for that. There will be a giveaway as well. Thanks to Ms. Jasper. :)
