HAPPY RUE DAY!
Rue Volley is a seventeen year old going on immortal. Her mother Grace is in Rolling River Asylum, after she mysteriously stopped speaking to anyone. Her father William is now absent from her life. The only person she thinks she has left is her annoying brother Kai, who tries to kill her with his lack of cooking skills. Kai convinces Rue that she needs to be more social and drags her to a party at Johnathan Graphs house. Little does Rue know that because of this one small change in her otherwise normal routine, her life as she knows it will never be the same. Rue is about to find out that she will never die and has to make the ever trecherous decision of which hot boy she will spend eternity with. She wants Johnathan Graph, really, really bad but she needs Joshua Barrington, a boy who does nothing but annoy her death. One boy wants to kill her and one will die to save her. Suddenly, although she has lost the core of the family that she has known, she has gained a new family, who desperately try to help mold her into what she will become. Rue struggles to learn who she is as she navigates through a new world of beings that seem to want to own her or destroy her completely. This story takes Rue on a wild ride from her hometown of Calvary, Minnesota to the gates of the immortal city of Valon...the birthplace of her decendants...immortals who believe that humans are nothing but cattle. What do you eat when blood grosses you out, but that's all you think about? Everything is such a big deal, except death...OMG.
Book two in the Blood & Light Vampire series takes Rue, our teenage vampire, even deeper into the rabbit-hole that has become her life. This book introduces a deeper look into the vampire city of Valon, that all vampires derive from. It begins taking a darker turn as you are invited into their world and their lack of compassion for the human race and, even in some cases, a total disregard for their own kind. As
the story twists and turns, you are also introduced to two new vampires, Jonah & Lily. They are the sister/brother team, who run a traveling carnival, luring unsuspecting humans into their lair, not only to seduce…but to feed upon.
Rue faces many dangers in this addition, not only from her own kind…but this new vampire breed…that of the rogues, who serve no one but themselves and their own desires. Rue also struggles with her want to be "normal", as she comes to terms with the fact that she is indeed a vampire of great importance. As she navigates her way through this, she is also coming to realize that Joshua Barrington has seduced her and perhaps stolen her heart.
Please join us as you find yourself sucked deeper into an epic story in the life of one girl, who has good intentions but may indeed be her own worst enemy. Book two is more graphic in nature…with language, sexual situations, and violence. Sure to make you laugh, cry…and realize that sometimes you find yourself standing at the corner of WTF and OMG.
In this 3rd installment of the Blood & Light Vampire Series we follow Rue deep into the rabbit hole as she tries to fight her way out of "memory"...a purgatory of sorts for immortals, and the last place a vampire wants to find themselves trapped in. This 3rd year in the lives of these vampires takes a closer look at their ability to portal through mirrors, the spells they conjure and the love that becomes more intense between Rue & Joshua. In the end you will be left speechless as the story takes yet another twisted turn and leads you into book 4, “Clarity & Reason.”
Oil & water is psychological in nature and pushes the boundaries of what is real and what is illusion, as not everything is what it seems to be.
...how far can the mind bend, before it is broken?
Find out as you continue your journey with these vampires who bite.
