Three siblings. An endless list of victims. A whole lot of time to kill.
* * *
With two specimens of the undead on either side of her, Juliana knew there was no escape. Kill the one they had selected for her, or be killed, and become one of them. What had the neighbours in the road called them, back when their childhood pranks were just that?
Oh yes, she remembered now. Murderous Little Darlings. They had the faces of angels, but possessed the very soul of the Devil.
Marcus had fully embraced his vampire side from the moment he was born. Rocco was the second eldest, and had fought the temptation all of his life. Then Marcus finally broke him.
That just left Juliana. Will she resist them, or join in the hunt?
A black comedy from the author of Stormling and Dark Winter, Murderous Little Darlings is the first of a seemingly unrelated set of vampire novellas, collectively known as A Tale of Vampires.
Some infrequent but strong swearing, plus fantasy horror elements are contained within this book.

This is an amazing read by a new author for me. I love reading about vampires and this one was not a disappointment. It has strong strong caharacters and is very well writen. I can not wait to read the next book in the series, I highly recommend this book for all who love reading about vampires. If you buy this book I do not think you will be disappointed.
OMG, Rocco sucks the blood, then sucks his thumb, and my sick little mind smiles at the picture in my head, as I read about these six year old triplets who go on a murderous rampage, and Marcus knows no one will suspect them, because they are only six years old when the first murder happens…BUT, to really make this a great story, I think John Hennessy needs to make it a full length novel, thus filling in the details and plot holes that left me wanting….MORE.
As I thought! Very good read. A huge difference in this writers first book I read, thank you for the excellent story.
I guess we can expect the unexpected from John Hennessy! Murderous Little Darlings had so many twists and sharp turns that I was left with my head spinning and this strange thirst for…more! Three siblings, are they all vampires or not? Is Marcus, the oldest triplet truly a vampire from birth? Is Rocco fighting the urge? Is Juliana denying her heritage? Or is there something completely different going on that will change everything for these three? You want a fresh look at YA vampires? Looking to avoid going over totally to the dark side of things that go bump in the night? This could be your next great read. John Hennessy has woven a plot that is intriguing, not too dark and to be honest, these kids act like real siblings, bickering among themselves, yet loyal to each other when danger threatens. How far will they go to keep each other safe? Will they embrace the vampiric lifestyle or is there something more ahead for them? Yep, I’m hooked on this little novella with the punch of a tome, thanks to the clever writing style of this author.
A short, spine-tingling adventure with a surprise twist!
