Blurb:
Can
the ultimate choice be made if saving your race means destroying the one you
love?
At
the beginning of the twenty-first century of our era a millennia long war
between two immortal races was coming to an end. The Vampire Elite, the
strongest among vampires, forced the race of immortal beings, the Amiti to
become their blood suppliers, called bloodstock, locking them in their
underground cells and treating them like livestock. The surviving free Amiti
make a final attempt to strike back. The Queen of Amiti is proclaimed a traitor
and is executed. Her death signifies the rise of a new Queen, her young
daughter Arianna who becomes the last hope of her dying race. Arianna totally
embraces her mission and is ready to fight for her people to the last drop of
her blood but encounters an unexpected challenge—the vampire King Tor. They
both are captured into a trap of love where they had to make an ultimate
choice; to kill the loved one or to let their races die.
Vampire
Elite is the epic story of a bitter conflict between two peoples, and the
effect of that conflict on everyone living in its grip. The characters are
driven to love and betrayal, vengeance and sacrifice in a world without easy
black-and-white answers.
Based
on an ancient Egyptian legend, packed with action and intrigue, Vampire Elite
will pull you into the entrancing world of immortals and open new portals into
their hidden universe.
Excerpt:
(Oberon is captured.
Anock is interrogating him)
“I can’t do that, Anock.”
“Oh, but you can. You don’t want this
female to die, do you?”
“No, I don’t, and I appeal to your
mercy, Anock. You can spare her life; it’s your choice as much as it is mine. More than mine. I will not give the
Keepers up. There’s nothing that you can do that will change my mind.”
“Yes, Oberon, you will. At the count
of three. One.”
“I am so very sorry.” Oberon glanced
at the woman. She held her head down, but her shaking shoulders betrayed that
she was crying. “There is nothing I can do for you. The Keepers are the only
Amiti’s hope, I cannot give them up.”
Please Goddess, kill
me. Spare me from having to make this choice.
* * *
Two!
Anock was bluffing. He had no intention of letting the woman die. It was a test
of wills.
“Please, Anock. You’re a warrior, not
a butcher. How can you reduce yourself to this level? Torture me, kill me, do
whatever you want, but please, don’t waste her life.”
Anock looked one last time at the
Amiti.
This is
so wrong.
Three!
Blade’s sword hissed through the air,
slicing through the female’s neck. Her head hit the floor and
rolled toward the cage, lifeless jade-green eyes staring into Anock’s soul. It
took a few seconds for the body to collapse to the floor.
The hysterical screams of the other
Amiti filled the room.
Anock stared, transfixed, at the
lifeless eyes.
Cara’s eyes. Oh Goddess.
 “Take the bloodstock to her cell and clean the
place up,” he ordered, his voice and brain totally disconnected, and left.

    Irina and Jo-An,
    I'm not sure what "from the court" means – I live in Brazil, and I was at the FB party with Chelsea… I think there's another Renata near you, right?
    But be sure I'll post a review on Amazon (and Goodreads) as soon as I finish my reading – really soon, because I can't stop reading 🙂
