“Pure Blood (Book 2 in Eternal Love Saga)” by Ronald Whitlock (Idaho); Page Publishing ($19.99)
It has been several years since anyone has heard from the Malkavians. It’s as if they just vanished off the face of the Earth. Ron and Amber have enjoyed years of peace, time that they have spent raising their daughter, Ariana, teaching her the ways of the vampires as well as how to blend in as a human. Now something evil is lurking in the darkness, waiting for its chance to strike, preparing and searching for a weakness between Ron and Amber.
This time the Willows clan are in a new town with new friends and new humans to protect, but suddenly a series of strange deaths begins to plague this once-peaceful town. The Willows begin to suspect that the Malkavians have returned, and soon they will find out why.
A new storm is brewing on the horizon, and an evil like they have never seen is out for vengeance against the Willows and the human race. This time, no one is safe, and in order to survive this, new alliances have to be made and the one from the legends will need help from the one pureblood vampire in existence. This time everyone will be put to the test as they all race to save themselves and the humans from an evil so powerful that it can destroy the Earth itself. Can Ron and Amber defeat the Malkavians this time, or will the entire planet suffer and face extinction at evil’s hands?
