In HAVEN & DESTINY, San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli finds love and fights her vampire family's enemies. Now, in ORIGINS…
En route to reunite with her estranged father in Italy, Carina is kidnapped by a human organization intent on vampire genocide. Beaten, starved, and forced to fight fellow captives, she finally manages to escape. Along the way, she encounters the group's leaders—their identities shock her to the core.
Once home, Carina warns her family of this new threat, but dear old dad is missing. In his absence, the Tribunal, the governing body for all vampirekind, lies in disarray, with an old enemy making a bid for her father's throne. What's worse? The usurper wants her for his queen…and slave.
With a human-vampire war looming on one side and a vampire-vampire battle brewing on the other, Carina will have to rally her troops, take back the throne, and fulfill her destiny as the Chosen One. If not, her whole world will fall, taking everyone she loves with it.

It feels like I waited forever for Origins, but I’m not going to complain because it was worth every miserable second of waiting! At last, the conclusion to the Tranquilli Bloodline. Carina and her blood-sucking nerd herd are back, and it’s oh-so-satisfying. Like the first two books before it, the snark is so much fun and the action will keep you biting your nails. All of the characters are absolutely memorable (especially Jonas—I adore his violent devotion to his princess), and the love scenes will steam up your e-reader. Finally, all our questions are answered about Carina and her family, and that ending—all I can say is YAAAAS!! I admit, with the wait between books, I’d forgotten some of the characters and details, so a word of advice: read Haven and Destiny again before jumping into Origins…it’s not like reading these awesome books twice is a hardship in any way. And if you haven’t read this series yet – get on it! Awesome friendships, kick-ass action, vampires and werewolves, and a bit of vengeance and heartache along the way. Amazing urban fantasy series – five stars all the way!
