You may look at the title and think “I missed the first synopsis”, which would be understandable because the only place I posted it was on my Facebook Author Page. (I also post daily bitstrip comics featuring Katelina, Jorick, and Verchiel, as well as other goodies, so if you haven’t “liked” it yet, you should!)
Now on to the synopsis:
After three months away, Katelina and Jorick’s homecoming isn’t what they expected. Her best friend Sarah is back and hesitant to share how she survived being tortured – and killed – by vampires. Hounded by her mother and dragged to Easter dinner with her family, Katelina is almost relieved when she and Jorick are sent to guard an exclusive vampire party.
Her relief is short lived. Surrounded by ancients, Sarah claims she’s being stalked while they sleep. Katelina isn’t sure whether to believe her or chalk it up to whatever causes her mood swings. But, if Sarah is right, who could it be? William, an old enemy of Jorick’s, or the terrifying twins Tol and Ren? When everyone seems suspicious, it’s hard to tell who the culprit is.
Then they find a dead child whose heart is missing, just like the murders in the Heartless killings. Does that mean the serial killer is a vampire – and a guest at the party? Could it have anything to do with their stalker, or is it simply too much evil in one place?
The eighth book in the Amaranthine series plunges back into darkness, steeped in superstitions and death, where vampires are once again vicious creatures of the night.
