Afterlight by Elle Jasper is the first book in her new Dark Ink Chronicles series. The book is scheduled to be released on November 2, 2010. I’m really excited about this new series. Afterlight will be part of my Debut Paranormal Romance Challenge. Here are some more details from the author’s site:
About The Series: Riley Poe leads the series as a gritty, unconventional tattoo artist-turned-undead-slayer after her younger brother is lured into a gang led by a pair of vicious Romanian vampires. In books 1,2,and 3, Riley, a dead-sexy guardian vampire named Eli Dupre, his undead family and Riley’s surrogate grandparents-who are not only Gullah root doctors but hoodoo conjurers as well–stalk the underside of Savannah, Charleston, and a trip to the Old World as they track the deadly Arcos vampires to Romania. The story unfolds through Riley’s eyes in first person where you learn of Riley’s torrid past, her desires, and her fears as she falls hard for Eli, becomes Victorian Arcos’ obsession, and struggles not to become the very thing she fights: a vampire.
Book One: Afterlight
Synopsis (Product Description):
The Dupres have been Savannah’s guardians, appointed by a band of root doctors and hoodooists, for nearly two hundred years. They’ve all grown…complacent. Now, the Arcos brothers, who’ve long been entombed at Bonaventure, have been inadvertently freed by a group of teenagers horsing around in the cemetery. Determined to take revenge on the city who entombed them, the Arcos’ gather strength in the city’s youth. Within the moon’s full cycle, the gang’s quickening will be complete–they’ll become vampires. Newlings, out of control and craving human blood will ravage the city. The one thing the Arcos’ didn’t count on was the powerful love of a sister. Riley Poe will stop at nothing to get her brother back. The one thing Riley didn’t count on was the powerful love of a vampire. Eli Dupre will do anything to get her. Follow Riley, Eli, and the vampires of the Dupre House into the shadowy, underside of Savannah.
