Because you can't stake a heartless vampire...
Book 1: Bloody Hell
It had been almost a century and a half since I last encountered anyone from the Order of the Morning Dawn. They were religious fundamentalists with the dual goal of eliminating vampires and witches.
Being both a vampire and a witch I was the embodiment of everything the Order hates. Their first attempt to eliminate me failed. Thanks to the fact that my mentor in the Craft was also a necromancer.
When they burned my heart they didn’t kill me. They unwittingly completed a spell that tied my existence to the soul of one who took my place in hell.
Now I’m heartless, literally.
Not having a heart has some advantages. It means I’m pretty resilient, especially when it comes to wooden stakes.
So long as the soul bound to my existence remained in hell, I was virtually invincible.
But the Order figured it out. They hope to redeem the soul who was damned in my stead. If they do that, I’ll meet the true death for sure. I have to capture the one damned in my place before the Order manages to liberate him from perdition. If they free him, I will die.
I have to go to bloody hell.
Book 2: Bloody Mad: A Vampire in an asylum? Like that's going to end well...
Book 3: Bloody Wicked: Taking on a horde of demon possessed vampires? Time to get wicked!
Book 4: Bloody Devils: We were the terrors of New Orleans. And humanity's only hope.
Book 5: Bloody Gods: I've always been the hunter... now I'm the hunted.
What are readers saying about The Legacy of a Vampire Witch?
★★★★★ It gets better with each book!! Loved Mercy in this one. She has her humanity that most vampires don’t have yet she can be crazy devil could care less persona with her new power she got. I just love her. She is so complex...High recommed if you want a different take on vampires and witches. (Amazon Reviewer)
★★★★★ I absolutely love Mercy! She is tricked into becoming an immortal vampire, and her heart ripped from her. From the 1st book I was captivated by her inner demons and her determination to be totally heartless. Yet she loves and feels compelled to rid the world of demons and evil, so not in line with what a vampire should be! She finds friends and long lost family and together they save humanity. From werewolves to witches, to demons hellbent on taking over the world, Mercy and company are a delight to follow! Well written, highly recommended. (Amazon Reviewer)
★★★★★ This awesome box set was such a thrill to read...I highly recommend this awesome box set to everyone who loves reading about witches and vampires.
Zombie sharks! What the ... ?
It's not the first time I've faced a bokor...
But this dude (or dudette?) is on a whole other level of evil.
I mean, it's not unheard of for bokors to raise zombies...
But sharks? Come on!
The wyrmriders are getting there...
They've been training. We're becoming a force.
But the sharks move like torpedoes... these aren't drag-your-desiccated-flesh-behind-you zombie creatures...
They are fast... think World War Z meets Jaws...
And they're hungry. Their population is growing... if they make it to the beaches... if they bite any humans, any merfolk... who knows what will happen.
But even if we manage to stop the sharks, if I can't find the bokor behind it all, he'll just make more. And I can't figure out what his end-game is...
Will I be able to find him, and stop him in time, or will the oceans fall prey to a zombie-shark apocalypse?

Put not your trust in princes…
I was foolish to ever think the government would help in our battle against the elven legion.
Support the President’s alliance with the elven king… or be arrested for murder.
Technically, I was guilty… but what a choice!
And I can’t even use my abilities to fight…
Not so long as the fairies are aligned with the elves.
There’s only one way to get the upper hand.
I have to appeal to the furies… the “queens” of the fairy realm.
They demand justice… for the one who died by my magic.
If I don’t face the music, if I can’t convince the furies that justice was done, I’ll never be able to stop the elves.

They blackballed me a heretic.
Not like they had a choice. The only alternative was admitting they might be wrong.
I didn’t go into ministry to defend dogma.
I just wanted to spread a message of hope.
But now I don’t know what to believe.
Elves are real. I mean, seriously?
How does getting stabbed confirm to anyone I am the center of ancient prophecy?
Now it isn’t just my beliefs I have to fight.
There are many who don’t want to see the elven prophecy fulfilled.
And they want me dead before I can do something radical.
Like, oh, I don’t know…
How about save the world?

I am preparing to fight like the fate of the world might depend on… me.
My girlfriend has disappeared back to her world.
Elven legions might attack Earth, there’s been a coup attempt and rumors of dead elves coming back to life.
But something doesn’t feel right about all of this…
Between surprise wedgies, the folks at my church upset at me, and my talking-cat’s Animal Planet addiction…
