After the events of Shades of Gray, Katelina seeks peace at Jorick’s house by the sea. But it’s impossible to find, so long as she’s determined to stay with a vampire – and she is determined, isn’t she?
Despite her growing attraction to her vampire “hero”, there are so many secrets left hidden in the shadows. While she struggles to unravel the mystery of a locked room and a faded photograph, a storm brews in the world beyond. Kateesha, a former ally, builds a secret war coven to fight the same battle as Jorick’s fledgling. A common enemy isn’t enough to overcome past betrayals, and the tempest explodes into a violent frenzy that may leave one of them dead, if not changed forever.
Old enemies will resurface and the past will come back to haunt both Jorick and Katelina as they’re pulled by opposing forces into a battle that neither had anticipated. Can they band together and stand strong against the waves that threaten to tear them apart, or will they lose themselves to old regrets and older guilt?
The second installment of the Amaranthine series plunges back into a world of blood and cruelty where the darkness hold dominion and vampires don’t sparkle.
Second Edition Release Notes:
Of the Amaranthine series, Legacy of Ghosts has gotten the most complaints. “Too much fighting”, “Katelina gets too emotional”, and others comments led me to reexamine the book. I believe most of the unhappiness centers around the scenes at Jorick’s house, with the secret room and Katelina’s reaction to what she finds in the desk drawer. That scene and a few following scenes have been edited, a couple of niggly corrections have been made (such as the address of the letters; they were sent to Nebraska, not Delaware; and Jorick left Malick in 1868, not 1865) and two of the “lost chapters” (originally created to imitate the “deleted scenes” on a DVD) have been included in shortened forms which explain where the coffins come from and why Jorick’s gift is not useful for an all-out fight. Of course I also touched up conversations, tidied some scenes, chopped some sentences, and gave the book yet another polish. It’s said that a novel can never have too many edits. We’ll see if that’s true.
