I’m pleased to announce that Jonas, my favorite vampire from The Tranquilli Bloodline Series is out and about in the world this week, in his very own story, Vampire Code!

Abducted from her dance club, Carina suffers a vicious attack by a newly-turned vampire. Jonas’s retribution for the lowly spawn’s code violation is swift and brutal, and merely the beginning of his vengeance. Fineas, the uninitiated newling’s maker, has committed the greater offense.
