Adriana - a vampire and an assassin.
Strathan - a sorcerer masquerading as a Hollywood bad boy.
The two made a deal: Adriana retrieves two relics for him, Strathan gives her information that could lead to her missing family.
Adriana did her part. Strathan reneged on their deal, taking the relics and murdering the last of Adriana's mortal family.
Adriana wants Strathan's blood on her enchanted blades.
Neither zombies and Neo-Nazi sorcerers occupying a former Nazi death camp, a demon assault on a red carpet premiere in Hollywood, nor three noble warrior sorcerers out to retrieve the shards will stand in her way.
Will the desire for revenge lead to Adriana's self-destruction? Or will the warrior sorcerers' influence drive Adriana to seek redemption for the sins of her murderous past?
Or is an unknown combatant using Adriana as a pawn in the secret war known as the Shadowdance?
The story that began in "By Virtue Fall" concludes in "For Her Sins."
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?
