Enter the "Shadowdance" action/ urban fantasy saga with this short story, "Fall to Grace."
Vampire Adriana suffers from memory loss. She remembers a girl, possibly her sister, and a previous life as an assassin. Warrior sorcerer Makeda helps Adriana recover her memories -- but then the women are captured by Makeda's superiors, the Knights of Vyntari. They want Makeda to explain why she jeopardized three important artifacts during an operation in Berlin.
Adriana must help Makeda prove her case to the Knights, or Makeda will be excommunicated from the organization and lose her ability to work with Adriana.
There are forces within the Knights who want exactly that -- and for Adriana to meet her final death!
About the Author
The son of a sharecropper (not really), Mark Wooden has actively pursued the dream of being a Creative since his epic kindergarten work, "Ne-Ne the Vampire Panda.” Though he prefers movies, Mark chose the novel as his creative outlet; they don’t cost anything to write and he is the only person who can slow his progress. He draws inspiration from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Blade," decades of "Batman" and "X-Men" comic books and conspiracy epics "24" and "The X-Files." He'd be remiss if he didn't also mention the influence of a certain Frank Miller-created assassin named Elektra. Mark mines his two decades of experiences as a video director in live entertainment (concerts and corporate events) to instill humanity into the vampires, demons, werewolves, sorcerers and other creatures of his “Shadowdance” urban fantasy saga. When he's not doing all that he's taking care of his dachshund, Adi (yes, named after a Jedi). “By Virtue Fall: A Song of the Shadowdance" is the first novel in the "Shadowdance" saga. Like it?
