2:Legacy of Ghosts

both covers

After the events of Shades of Gray, Katelina seeks peace with Jorick, but it’s hard to find with a vampire. The question is: does she want to try?

Despite her growing attraction to her “hero”, there are many things she doesn’t know about him; secrets left hidden in the shadows. While Katelina 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 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.

Old enemies resurface and the past returns to haunt Jorick and Katelina. Drawn into a deathly conflict, Katelina will have to make the ultimate decision between the world of sunlight and the world of darkness. Will she and Jorick band together and lay the memory of past mistakes to rest, or will they be haunted by their ghosts forever?

The second installment of the Amaranthine series plunges back into a world of blood and cruelty where the darkness holds 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.
