Finish school, grow up, get married, have a kid. That's the typical life, isn't it? Allison Dutch has done just that yet the universe proves that there is no such thing as normal. Queen Aeryn takes on her role as the head of the vampire nation in the midst of war. Recovering slowly from the stress of the burdens she bears she seeks comfort in those she loves, but is it at a price? The world is in chaos and soon so is Aeryn's life as her Dark Angel prepares her to join him in a world she can't yet conceive of. Putting it off for as long as possible, she pours herself into the Vampire Games, travelling the world to learn her Dark Angel's past, and working to foil the plans of someone who wants to destroy the kingdom she's helped create.
This is the last book in the Allison Dutch Series. To find out what happens afterward, please refer to the Black Tree Series, which will be published soon.
P.S. There is a happy ending. You just have to keep reading to find out when and how.
About the Author
Who Am I? Since I appreciate full disclosure, I’m letting it all out in the open: I’m Black (with Irish and Cherokee thrown in to fuck things up further), autistic, aromantic, noetisexual (a new term coined by yours truly), demisexual/asexual (though not a celibate one), polyamorous, Relationship Anarchist, autodidact, relationship fluid (an invention of Louisa’s), disabled, single parent, in poverty, kinky switch/Dom/me, assigned female at birth, synesthetic (most notably visual/touch), intersex, genderqueer, Army brat, survivor of several forms of abuse, left-handed, singleish, and pansexual. What Have I Experienced? My disabilities and health conditions consist of endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, cPTSD, dysautonomia, fibromyalgia, eczema, secondary anxiety and depression. I’ve lived in severe poverty for my entire life, including prior, some recent and likely impending homelessness. I’ve had several major surgeries, survived more rapes than I can count, and narrowly escaped stalkers, domestic violence, and murderers. I’ve been writing cuil fiction, my invented intersectional queer and poly genre, for over 16 years. I raise my children non-traditionally with my sister. I’m also a not-quite widow; within months of one another I lost both a former female partner and a current male partner. What Do I Know? I attended many schools, majoring in areas as diverse as Drama, Instrumental Music, Choir, Dance, Aviation Maintenance, Teaching and Technology, Brain and Mind Studies (which includes an in-depth integrated approach to the different disciplines dealing with, well, the mind), Women Gender and Sexuality Studies, Objectivism. Of course, that’s only my education on paper; since the age of 12 or so I’ve also been a voracious self-taught student of history, sexuality, religions, cosmology, philosophy, math, technology; anything that caught my fancy. I spend the majority of my time presently engaging in fleshing out the many corners of the cuilverse (the fictional, intersectional world of my queer, poly characters); writing on Medium or running Postmodern Woman; and providing content for groups such as Intersectional Non-Monogamy (another invention of mine) and a few others of intersectional focus. I’m also a contributor, transcriptionist, social media associate, and speaker for Everyday Feminism; offering a number of courses of varying topics I both have personal and educational experience with. Additionally, I serve as the Digital Content Outreach Coordinator for The Body is Not an Apology.
