Out of the shadows…

For more than a decade, Caro Barrett has had doubts about the death of her husband, who disappeared while looking for a tribe of day-walking vampires in an African rainforest. Now, their daughter is struggling through her teenage years without a father. Waiting in the wings is an ancient vampire ready to possess Caro’s heart—and to protect them both from harm. And, with her husband declared legally dead, Caro feels it is finally time to move on…

A hemisphere away in a windowless compound, an Ottoman vampire lies dying from a rare blood disease, which has made him vulnerable to the faintest bit of light. Yet he is determined to vanquish its power over him—to feel the sun on his face one last time. And in Caro’s darkest fears he will be lifted into the light of day…

Review:

"A young woman is thrust into the secret world of vampires in this clichéd supernatural thriller, first in a proposed series. When Caroline 'Caro' Clifford's Uncle Nigel is murdered, she travels to Bulgaria and ends up on the run with biochemist and soi-disant vampire expert Jude Barrett. The vamps chasing them work for Harry Wilkerson, CEO of a major pharmaceutical company, who hopes to learn and capitalize on the secret of vampiric immortality. Wilkerson is also Caro's long-lost father, and he believes she knows the location of pages Caro's mother stole from a suppressed Gnostic gospel about vampires. To find the pages, Caro and Jude must decode clues left by Nigel while evading Wilkerson's forces — but their growing romance is complicated when they learn Caro may be a part-vampire and implicated in an ancient vampire prophecy. The predictable twists add unfortunate drag to this roller-coaster ride." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

A woman's quest for the truth...A medieval icon that holds the clues...And an ancient book with the power to shake Christianity-and humanity itself.

London tour guide Caroline Clifford has never believe in vampires- until her uncle is brutally murdered at a Bulgarian archaeological site, and a vampire hunter who corresponded with him seeks her out.

Strange anagrams on her uncle's passport lead them to a cliff-top monastery in Greece, where a shattering revelation connects a relic Caro inherited to an age-old text on immortality-and an enigmatic prophecy that pits the forces of darkness and light in a showdown that could destroy all they know...
