Editorial Reviews

Esmerelda Little Flame
Well written, thoroughly researched, imaginative and educational. This story mixes Celtic mythology with vampire lore and does it in a way no one else has. You won't want to stop reading till you are done. I can't wait for volume two.
Khanåda Taylor
Extremely well researched and so very entertaining. Love the characters. You are completely pulled in and find yourself fully immersed in this wonderful universe. Hard to put it down and when I came to the end of book one I was antsy for book two!
Mari Luz Lavado Martín
I loved this book. It's a totally different vampire story, all sprinkled with mythology and history. It has humour, intrigue and a totally hooking story that you will love to read. Now I just can't wait until the next volume is out!

Meet the Author

Chris Dunbar was born in Greenport, Long Island, New York and then moved to Texas as soon as he could, at least that is the story he tells to native Texans, such as his wife. Chris keeps searching for ways to leave Houston, like moving to Auburn Alabama, Dallas, and even San Antonio, but Houston just keeps reeling him back. Chris� day job is performing Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, but his night job is coming up with creative ways to wound and maim the characters he and his wife Heather created. For fun, Chris enjoys the occasional novel and video game, but he also likes to delve into his Scottish ancestry and tool leather. When he can find the time, Chris pretends to play the Bodhran and the didgeridoo, much to the chagrin of his cats Lucius, Ophelia, and Clyde, not to mention his wife Heather.

Born in Houston, Texas, Heather began writing her first book at age eight. While her grammatical structure left much to be desired, she continued to hone her writing and storytelling skills. During a college internship in London, England, her curiosity about ancient cultures and mythology intensified. She backpacked through Europe, fell in love with Scotland, cried at the retelling of part of Ulster cycle, garnered ghost stories from the Beefeaters at the Tower, wandered the Roman ruins in Bath, and danced around the stones in Avebury.
After spending all her spare time studying these new interests in many libraries and on the road, she began working on her masters in Library and Information Science at the University of North Texas. She now resides in the Houston area with her husband and three cats. She loves exploring the local culture as well as the many Celtic festivals and events in Texas. She works in the Houston Public Library system and her favorite authors include Morgan Llewellyn, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Evelyn Vaughn, Alison Weir, and Randy Lee Eickhoff.
