For fans of Oliver Potzsch’s The Hangman’s Daughter series, J.R. Rain’s Vampire for Hire, and David Penny’s The Red Hill.

The Napoleonic War rages, King George III is mad, and a dark secret society looks to take advantage.

John Grissom’s enhanced vampiric hearing leads him to investigate the oldest and most powerful order of vampires in England. His investigation takes him from London to Brighton and back again, from a vampire proof dungeon to a glittering masked assembly. 

What he discovers could turn the tide of war in Napoleon’s favor. He hopes to succeed in preventing it, but he’ll be powerless to do anything if a blood-crazed madness takes him first.

“I’m going to have to read [the sequel] to see what is in store for this intriguing character Zapledam has created.” Laura Pearl, author of Erin’s Ring
“I admire the way the author used a vampire story (without being repulsive) to tell an exciting tale with real substance, one that makes readers ponder moral truths and, in particular, to consider what really makes a monster.” Therese Heckencamp, author of Frozen Footprints

Hadley Daniels’s life seems perfect…

Before the beginning of sophomore year of high school, Hadley and her family move to a beautiful beach town, where she makes amazing new friends and lands the boyfriend of her dreams–Nick Jenkins. He’s the kind of guy every girl swoons over, and it isn’t long until Hadley discovers some are still swooning.

A famous ex-girlfriend makes matters more complicated…

After some time dating, Hadley and Nick form a deep bond. But insecurity sets in when Hadley discovers her boyfriend once had a huge crush on her friend–who just happens to be the beautiful former teen TV star, Simone Hendrickson.

“Still, this process does not sit well with me. Letting the people think they are in control of these proceedings, having them vote for their chosen candidate as if they will change the way things are done, these are dangerous ideas. Furthermore, these are actual lowborns we are admitting to our ranks. What if something slips through the filtering process, what then? I have this nagging feeling that this whole enterprise will come back to haunt us one day.”

Brought together by a reality show designed to pacify the people of Gandria, Viscount Marcus Draishire and his low-born wife are secret devotees of the forbidden book. This could get both of them imprisoned or worse. Marcus hears a case of a cattle farmer suing his baron for unfair taxation. Should he follow the king’s decree, that all nobles are immune from criticism, or judge the case on its merits? Marcus chooses the latter and gets himself some unwanted attention. He now has to balance acting in the best interests of his subjects against antagonising his superiors, who tend to express their displeasure with a bomb, bullet or knife.

The people under him have their own struggles and the nobility itself is walking something of a tightrope, the need to crush dissent weighing against that of projecting a benevolent public image; no-one wants another uprising.
