Indie Spotlight: Patricia Lynne - Books & Giveaway
About the Author
Bringing Two worlds together: Cyclop meets Tommy.
Cyclop walks into Reading Teen. Books fill his sight, shelves lining the walls and reaching up to the ceiling. He half expected the ceiling to be covered in books as well. This was a book-aholic's dream library. "My author told me to come here. What am I supposed to do?"
No one answers. He waits a moment before wandering over to one of the giant bookshelves. He shoves his white blond hair out of his miss-matched eyes. A smile plays at his lips, the scent of paper and ink filling his senses. Amber got him into reading and he couldn't get enough. There weren't enough hours in the day, days in a month or months in a year to read everything. Maybe he'd discover he lived longer than humans.
A whisper of wind and cold sliding over his skin makes him jump. He whirls around, the book thudding to the blue carpet. "What the-"
The boy - looking like a teenage corpse with pale skin and dead blue eyes - slaps a hand over Cyclop's mouth. He lifts a slim finger to his colorless lips. Cyclop swears he sees fangs. The boy's voice is void of emotion. "Shh. We're in a library."
For Tommy, there is only one thing he needs to do: survive.
Only surviving isn't that easy. The hunt for blood can be tricky when humans know to fear the night. Desire sits on the edge of his mind, urging him to become the monster humans think he is. Vampire Forces, a special branch of police, is determined to turn every vampire to ash. Tommy included.
The only human Tommy can trust is his twin brother. A bond connects them, and with Danny's help, Tommy starts to understand the human world he struggles to survive in. He'll learn what friendships means and feel the sting of betrayal, find that sometimes the worst monsters are very human, and come to understand that family means more than blood.
Tommy just wants to survive and he knows what he needs to do. But with the number of humans that mean more to him than a meal growing, Tommy learns there's more to life than simple survival. He'll discover being human doesn't mean being a human.
