Angel's got a voice to die for. Literally. Her vocals are so powerful, everyone who hears them is in danger of immediately dropping dead. Ironically, singing is her one, and only, passion. Enter the world of Bostonian teen Angelica Brown: budding pop star and descendant of an immortal race of sun-loving blood drinkers kwn as Shimshana (the ancient ancestors of vampires). Defying her parents' traditions of higher education, Angel plans to ditch high school so she can sign a record deal and make a Top 10 pop tune with her BFFs. She's got a shot at superstardom, but she's also maturing into a full-grown Shimshana complete with fearsome power and insatiable bloodlust. That puts her girl group, their mysterious producer and her hunky new blood dor all in danger of becoming Angel's unwitting victims. To top it off, she must prove her worthiness to live by passing the tests in her Maha--the mandatory coming-out-party for new-born immortals. It is there that the ancient and powerful Council may decide she's too dangerous to be allowed to exist, at which point any Council member--including her mom--will be assigned to destroy her. Presenting a new spin on the vampire genre, Blood To Blood skillfully delivers plot twists that beg the questions: Will Angel quickly learn to control her new abilities and survive her Maha? Or will her killer instincts bring her promising career, and her life, to an end? Order your copy of Blood To Blood w!
