Sample Sunday: Ashes of Deceit

Amaranthine – the exciting, action packed paranormal series from Joleene Naylor:

Pulled into a world of darkness, Katelina’s fate is intertwined with Jorick, a dark, enigmatic vampire. To stay by his side, she must navigate fields of intrigue, terror and bloodshed as they’re drawn from one vampire war to another. Join Katelina and Jorick in a world where vampires don’t sparkle and night is eternal.

Here’s an excerpt from book 4, Ashes of Deceit:

Katelina woke and blinked groggily. Cold air blew her hair in her face and she made to wipe it away, except that her arms didn’t work right. They weren’t the only thing. Her legs felt like lead and when she moved them nothing happened.

“She’s waking up.”

In her half coherent state it took Katelina a moment to recognize the voice. It was Kioko, the Executioner.

Executioner?

The last several hours crashed over her and she suddenly remembered. As she came to terms with the memories, she sought Jorick and found him, still unconscious, hanging over Ark’s back. She forced her eyes and mind to focus and realized she was on the runway of a rural airport, draped over Kioko’s impatient shoulder. Behind them was a small airplane and above them the sky was black; the stars blotted out by bright ground lights. A chilly mist gave the lights an otherworldly halo and made the air smell like damp, dead grass. Katelina shivered and wondered if she was in Iowa.

Probably, since we’re going to the Citadel.

Just that phrase was enough to fill her with fear. She remembered the last visit and her encounter with Malick, the head of The Guild and Jorick’s ancient master; the way he’d lain her mind bare and probed through it at his leisure. She didn’t think she could do it again.

In Ashes of Deceit Katelina and Jorick must rescue a captured vampire and discover who kidnapped him and why. The truth isn’t easy to find. As Oren’s attack on the Guild draws closer, Jorick and Katelina are led back to the Citadel. When the flames of war ignite, can they rise from the ashes, or will they be consumed?
