Precious few vampire novels entertain me. And when we're talking about novels in a series, even fewer hold my interest into the next installment. This novel happens to be an exception on both counts. Eternal Shadows is a novel written by a good friend who also happens to be a talented author, Kate Martin. However, our friendship aside, this book is truly good. It was one of the first I'd read in a long while where I was eager to read more once it was over.
Here's the description of Eternal Shadows as written by Kate:
Vampires aren't supposed to be real, and Kassandra is not supposed to be one of them. But on the morning of her eighteenth birthday she wakes with fangs, a hunger for blood, and a body with abilities she can't control. Turned by the irritating, yet handsome, Rhys O'Shea, Kassandra struggles to balance her former human life with her new life as one of the undead.
With the world at war, the vampires have stepped in--but if the existence of the supernatural is exposed, then an entirely new battle will erupt. A battle for survival that will forever alter the future.
But the past may be just as dangerous. Kassandra can't stop the dreams of a young Irish girl in the medieval countryside, a girl who smiles when Rhys comes near, nor can she shake a looming sense of doom. The last time she felt this dark chill her mother died, and now Kassandra could be next.
And here's the snazzy cover:
And best of all, Kate is offering her book on Amazon.com for FREE on Halloween!
