Enchantress. Wizard. Witch. Just pick one already! My kind have been called many names. Not that it matters. Most of us are dead. And those still alive don’t make a spectacle of themselves. We know better. I promised my mother long before she died that I would never get caught. I would never reveal myself or the rest of my family to the vampires who have hunted us for centuries. Well, that didn’t last long. But for god’s sake, it’s not my fault! When the daughter of one of Georgia’s Congressmen disappears in my small southern town, it’s obvious to me that the vampires are involved. In other words, sit down and shut up! But Officer Parker is incapable of minding his own business when he asks me to help with the case. Lucky for me, he knows my gig as the town’s local psychic is more than just mere entertainment and tarot card reading. Then I got an unexpected and very unwelcome visit from Nathaniel. A staggeringly handsome and equally terrifying vampire who wants to know what happened to the Congressman’s daughter even more than I do. And he’s more than willing to threaten me to get what he wants. Now I’m stuck between a blood-thirsty vampire and a nosy policeman. Someone is gonna end up dead. Probably me. Blood Marked is the first book in the Kruxa Echelon series, the first series in the Witchling Wars urban fantasy universe.
