Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in paperback, Susan Hubbard’s “smooth supernatural thriller” (Publishers Weekly) The Year of Disappearances continues the most surprising vampire story you’ll ever read.

• Hot genre: New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris likens Hubbard’s “mysterious and well-written” novels to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, whose fans “pump new blood into Hubbard’s series” (Florida Today). The devotion of readers to this category ever-expanding in popularity is a prime opportunity to showcase Hubbard’s outworldly fiction.

• Author buzz: Hubbard’s novels grab the attention of a key demographic—enthusiasts of fantasy-themed fiction. “Fans of Stephenie Meyer, I have a new author for you who is even better. meet Susan Hubbard,” proclaims the Poisoned Pen newsletter from the Poisoned Pen mystery bookstore. Booksellers have welcomed Hubbard as an important new contributor to the genre.

• The year of the vampire: Ariella Montero, the perpetually thirteen-year-old, half-human, half-vampire whose adventures began in The Society of S, here, in The Year of Disappearances must harness her special abilities of hypnotism, mind-reading, and the power to make herself invisible to contend with the fatal (for humans) cultural clash wrought by warring sects of vampires and played out against the backdrop of American national politics, whereby a leading candidate proves to be something other.

Synopsis:

It was the year of disappearances. The honeybees were the first to go.

Ariella Montero is no stranger to the dark side of life. Half human, half vampire, she spent her first thirteen years in exile from both societies. When her best friend was murdered, Ari ran away to begin a new life in Florida. But, one by one, the people and things she cares most about keep disappearing. And Ari may be next.

She can hypnotize, she can read minds, and she can make herself invisible, but can she escape her stalkers? Ari's special talents are severely tested as she moves on — from a vampire community in the Sunshine State to college in Georgia to the primeval maze of the Okefenokee Swamp. In contending with the politics of vampire and human cultures, Ari comes face-to-face with zombies that are infiltrating America, as well as demons and shadows that haunt us all.

The Year of Disappearances continues the most surprising vampire story you'll ever read.
