Synopsis :

Hunted eCover (3)On the hundredth anniversary of being turned into a vampire, Edith Dorset joins her adopted daughters and their friends at the Heartsong Clan’s annual Live Action Role Play recruitment event where she meets an eager young man named Dan Paxton. His older brother and Hunter, Darren, thinks Dan’s merely chaperoning a trip to a nerd convention, but has no idea he’s partnered with vampires for the weekend.
When Darren discovers Dan missing, he follows the only lead he has to the Heartsong Clan’s residence on Tombstone Row. Edith and Darren’s first meeting is uneasy because he lies his way into the Clan’s house, claiming to be there to play on the side of humans. He’s determined to keep his Hunter instincts in check, rescue his brother, and get it out of there.
An impromptu late-night encounter leads Darren and Edith to come clean with each other about who and what they are. Edith longs to keep Darren and his brother close, although it goes against Clan rules, and Darren is finding it harder than he thought to snuff out Edith and her family. Darren and Edith grow closer as they seek out the truth from her Sire, Mr. Heartsong.
While Darren uses all his Hunter skills to free his brother and be the hero, Mr. Heartsong banishes Edith from the Clan for her behavior towards Darren. No longer having Clan protection, Edith is faced with a terrible choice. Just as Darren returns with Hunter reinforcements, Heartsong and his Clan have vanished, along with Edith and her family. All that remains is a note from Edith, begging Darren to find them. And so, the hunt begins.

Excerpt :

DARREN, 2018
I shouldn’t have let Danny talk me into coming to this damn convention. Crowds don’t bother me, but here, with everyone dressed up and covered in face paint, it’s a hunter’s nightmare. Th e slight pallor that warns you’re dealing with a vampire is impossible to pick out and that much body heat obscures their less-than 98.6-degree body temperature.
But, I loved my baby brother and he’d been begging me to come to this since he turned fi ft een. He was about to turn eighteen and life would get harder for him. Mom and Dad would have indulged him so I’d said he could come as long as I chaperoned. He’d mentioned something about meeting up with friends. I hated to admit it, but I’d focused on my training lately and didn’t know the first thing about his friends. The fact we’d come so late in the day didn’t thrill me either. It meant a higher chance that vampires could be out in force.
Danny had sweet-talked his way to the front of the line, leaving me behind. The moment I’d lost eyes on him, panic coursed through my veins. Hunter Academy intel said the Heartsong clan planned to recruit at this convention. My reason for saying ‘yes’ to Danny’s yapping about the con were twofold: indulge him, and get a lead on the vampire clan we’d been trying to take down since the hunters founded the Academy. Heartsong was crafty. I’m sure every member of his so called “family” were the same. As I inched closer to the front doors, I pulled my phone from my pocket and fired off a text.
DANNY, WHERE ARE YOU?
No response. Cel reception in such a massive space could be iffy in places but we had Academy-issued devices that boosted the signal when it dropped below two bars. He’d gotten the message.
That meant he was ignoring it or unable to answer. Neither option was great in my book. The pair of girls in front of me—maybe only fourteen—glanced back at me through their made-up eyes.
“What are you supposed to be?” one of them asked, a lisp elongating the ‘s’.
I glanced down at my all black outfit and trench coat. Another stipulation Danny had insisted upon was I dress up. Not one to abandon form, I’d made sure every item of clothing could conceal my gear. I’d made sure nothing would tip off the authorities or any vampires who might use the convention for their hunting grounds.
“Secret agent,” I answered. It was true for the most part. “I’m undercover.”

Excerpt :

The place between wake and sleep was where memories of Daniel always hid. For just a second, right before I opened my eyes, I saw him. It was like he never passed and I never became what I am today. “Vampire” was a dirty word nowadays. It was a pity they still regarded us as second-class citizens or–worse–monsters after how much we fought for Vampire Rights with the VHA in the early 19-teens and 1960s.
I sat up in bed, listening to the commotion in the kitchen of our small two-bedroom apartment off of Institute grounds. Most clan members lived on campus, but I wanted my adopted daughters Hope and Angel to live as normal of a life as possible. Th at meant mixing with the humans. Th e best way to achieve that was to not live on campus. We had our own rooms there for recruitment weekends and visits, but our main residence was our little apartment on 6th street four blocks from the rest of the clan.
“Back off, Hope! It’s my turn to mix the tea! Mama E lets me do it every weekend!”
“I’d rather stake myself than drink any of that watered-down garbage you call tea,” Hope snapped.
“Fine by me,” Angel said. “I’ll find you something sharp. Here, use my knife.”
I smiled. Despite being named after such a gentle creature, Angel stuck up for herself with the fire of a devil. Her fiery determination helped her survive a Khmer Rogue labour camp. Yes, she and Hope were both close to death, but that’s where I came in. Mr. Heartsong said, after being turned, “we vampires always know who needs us most.” Just like he knew I needed him to show me the good I could do if given near-infinite time, I did the same for two young sisters caught in the Khmer Rouge reign of terror in Cambodia. Their names in their native language were Sangkhum and Tevta. Once we moved back to America, we anglicized their names to Angel and Hope. I still sometimes used their Khmer names so they wouldn’t forget their past, but even the girls preferred fitting in with “American names.” It only took a single bite, along with a single, yes, to turn someone. I preferred to think of this life as a chance to help— not all vampire clans had such altruistic goals.
