Finally, Sanguine Malum is up for pre-order and I have a release date: May 5th!! Get ready to hang out in a dystopian Ohio with a bunch of pompous vampires and foul-mouthed mercenaries! This one if full-length, about the size of Bait, Brutes, and Bullets, and the majority of it is from Callie’s perspective. As much as I love
This one if full-length, about the size of Bait, Brutes, and Bullets, and the majority of it is from Callie’s perspective. As much as I love dual perspective, I really felt that Callie needed to tell the story on this one. I think you’ll see why!
Anyway, without further ado… here’s the link! Hope you all dig it!
And, just in case you forgot, here’s the blurb and some teasers!
Sanguine Malum by Lila Vale
***TRIGGER WARNING: This book contains adult content – blood, sex, violence, bad language and the occasional cliché. Continue at your own risk.***
The war has ended, but the bad blood remains.
Long ago, the vampires took control. Now, they run the cities and make the rules with little regard for the race they slaughtered to get there. With no rights and fewer options, some humans serve themselves up to the elite undead in exchange for protection. The rest take their chances with the ferals outside the city walls. It’s miserable, but misery can be lucrative if you’re clever enough.
Callie Flynn commands a small team at DWM – a strictly human mercenary group in the city outskirts. They take contracts; they eliminate beasties; they get paid. It’s a better life than most free humans get. But when a scout disappears on a mission she ordered, she realizes her shoot-from-the-hip attitude may have cost her more than a promotion.
Seeking answers in the disappearance, she breaks procedure and makes contact with a forbidden source: the vampire Judge of the city. Augustin is as frightening as he is fascinating, but he is also pragmatic. With her back against a wall, Callie makes an agreement that could either set things right or set everything ablaze.
The line between friend and foe corrodes the further she digs, forcing her to question her judgment and loyalties at every turn. At the bottom of it all, she uncovers a truth more twisted and far-reaching than anything she could’ve ever expected.
A truth that could cost her the thing she values most – her humanity.
SIDE NOTE: If you pre-order, be sure to save a screenshot of the order, or some kind of proof — I’m definitely going to whip up a contest here in a bit and I want to make sure everyone gets a shot at it. I’ll be sure to post the contest here once I get it all figured out!
Alright, off to start all the fun release day preparations! Fingers crossed that my PA doesn’t kill me. (I may or may not have sprung the pre-order and release date on her like, two minutes ago. I know, I know… I’m the worst.)
