Publication date: April 14, 2015
A lethal sword.
A dangerous mission.
A seventeen-year-old girl finding her way in a world that is nothing like she remembered.
When Maylin Kavanagh’s parents surrendered her to The Program, they swore it was for her protection. After being confined in a small underground cell for nearly two years, she is finally released.
But the world has changed.
Most of the populace has been wiped out by a deadly disease, and the rules of society have regressed. But that’s not the worst of it. When her group is kidnapped by a band of rogue vampires, Maylin realizes the decline of the human population has brought other races to the forefront—races she never knew existed. And now they’re all battling for survival and power.
In his father’s absence, Thane Warwick must lead his people. He has two priorities: find his father and find humans who can supply blood to his tribe. Immediately intrigued by his latest captive, he becomes interested in Maylin for more than just her blood, but he soon discovers that he must make a choice between his father and her.
Despite their attraction, Maylin and Thane each have an agenda, and only one can be the victor.
VAMPIRE’S BANE is the first book in the VAMPIRE’S BANE series. While it does end at a natural turning point in the heroine’s journey, it is an ongoing story, and not all questions will be answered. You will need to read this series in order.

She had me at vampire!, May 24, 2015
This story was not what I expected! Emotion pours out in the suspense, action, & betrayal. It begins with an emotional scene of a daughter being left at an unknown facility by her parents for unknown reasons, and we quickly learn she's not the only one. After finishing the book The Program is still a mystery for the most part. I'm curious what they're really about. Soon we figure out that the world has changed drastically in the 2 years they've been isolated due to a deadly virus, & the chosen have absolutely no idea of what's to come as they are sent out on a mission. We get the dystopian feel but things seem to be in pretty good condition as far as finding food & salvageable items UNTIL company arrives. I enjoyed these characters, & there were plenty of twists & mystery to entertain. Thane won me over immediately. We all know I love the vamps!! I am intrigued to learn more about this world & see what else is to come. I mean we even got a glimpse of Bigfoot! It isn't every day you get to witness a throw down between vampire & sasquatch. Who knows what other supernaturals will pop up along the way. But... I will be honest the betrayals almost broke me. Here's to hoping my fears do not come true. I guess we'll just have to wait & see.
