Soul Taker

Author: Karen Michelle Nutt


AVAILABLE
Amazon

~ An exciting, contemporary paranormal story of good versus evil from award-winning, bestselling author Karen Michelle Nutt ~ No soul is safe... A vampire from the Grim Sith sept is sucking the souls out of young women from the Boston area, but this sinister crime is far worse than a vampire seeking substance. He's selling the souls to the highest bidder and it seems business is booming. A vampire, a werewolf, and a Necromancer are a most unlikely team, but Garran, Harrison, and Isabella plan on putting a kink in the dubbed Soul Taker's plans. It's personal now. One of their friends has fallen victim to the Soul Taker's charms, but to stop him from hurting anyone else, their efforts may involve raising the dead.

Excerpt:
The night awakened everything dark and foreboding, allowing them to walk among the humans. Garran MacLaurin would be considered such a creature, though with practice he learned to control his unusual appetite to destroy everything in his wake.

From the shadows, Garran watched Isabella Lucci lock her car, the beep of the alarm echoing in the hospital's carport.

She wore a tan long-sleeve shirt with jeans, which looked tailored to fit her trim figure, and designer boots. She turned to go toward the hospital entrance, but something caught her attention. Her feet stilled. Her gaze turned toward him and apprehension crossed her delicate features. She took a hesitant step in his direction, clutching her purse like a lifeline. She scanned the parking lot, searching… For what? He stood still and waited. Finally, she turned and continued inside the hospital.

He would have to be careful. Isabella hadn't seen him, but he knew without a doubt she sensed him. Rare for a human to sense the preternatural world, but then again, if Harrison was correct in his assumptions, Miss Lucci could raise the dead.

Garran waited a respected few minutes so not to run into Miss Lucci. Then he too, entered the hospital.

Author's Book List
Twilight's Eternal Embrace
The Legend… There was a time when the nightwalkers lived among the humans, before they were known as vampyres or vampires to the modern world. The nightwalkers had their own clans and names they called themselves: Dearg-due, Oiche Sith, Draugr, Kyuuketsuki—to name a few of the older clan families. The nightwalkers' way of life was similar to the daywalkers. The only difference being the nightwalkers required blood to sustain life, a source easily supplied within their own clan. Male and female shared their blood with each other. There was no need to seek outsiders. As time marched on, their way of life became compromised. No more children were born to the females of the nightwalker clans and their numbers dwindled. For a preternatural being, that was virtually immortal in comparison to other life forms of the world, the idea of fading into history as merely a legend proved terrifying. Something had to be done… Though there are many stories of courage, this is Adryanna and Bram's story, a daywalker and a blood drinker, who defied the odds and forged a new destiny. The day was hers. The night was his. But Twilight was theirs.
