The Search (Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series)

Allison Carmichael is thirsty for blood and hungry for answers.

Lured away from her illicit extracurricular activities by news about her kidnapped husband, Allison rejoins her adopted family that’s promised to help her find him. Allison's search is detoured, however, by sinister vampire politics, the seeming good will of her fanged family, and the return of her nemesis. Circumstances unfold that shatter the foundation of her world.

In order to successfully play the game she has been thrust into, Allison must battle loss and betrayal and accept unexpected love.

THE SEARCH is on for answers, but when answers are found, will they be what Allison was looking for?





Excerpt; Allison is reunited with the Drakes

“Hello Allison,” Lorenzo said as his eyes scanned me from head to toe. His blond hair fell loose past his shoulders and his green eyes glistened like emeralds. Max and Felix, the two brothers who could pass as blood relatives, sat in silence as they also eyed me.
“Hello,” I stated simply. “So what is the big news you have on Matt? Where is he?” I wanted to cut straight to the point, the only reason that I was back here.
“Before we get to that, why don’t you tell us where you have been and what you have been doing for the past, oh say, five months,” Lorenzo said.
I closed my eyes and rubbed my neck. I wasn’t here for small talk; I was here to find out about my husband’s whereabouts. “I’ve been traveling. Mostly the United States, but I also visited Canada, Mexico and Central America.”
“Were you looking for Matthew?”
“Of course. In the beginning I tried looking for Matt. But looking for him was like looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. After so many months, I realized my efforts were futile so I continued traveling, taking in the sights, trying to see all of the places that I’d never thought I’d have the chance to see as a mortal.”
“And? What else have you been up to?”
“You know what, Lorenzo? If you have a question, why don’t you just ask it instead of beating around the bush? What do you want to know?”
“We want to know how you’ve been hunting – what you’ve been hunting? How have you been keeping yourself nourished?” Max asked.
Max was the brother who had taught me how to hunt – animals at least. He was the one responsible for monitoring animal and human populations and planning hunts accordingly so that our kills did not raise alarm with humans in any particular area. Of course he would want to know how I had been hunting.
I shook my head and shrugged my shoulders. “It’s been no big deal. When I’m hungry, I go out and eat. I found your tracking applications on the phone I had –”
“The phone you stole from me,” Marlo interrupted.
“On Marlo’s phone,” I continued. “I knew where to hunt and when. It was all pretty easy.”
“And humans? Have you killed any humans?” Felix asked, not looking up from his laptop.
“Of course I have. I’m a vampire, aren’t I?”
“How many?”
“I didn’t keep count,” I replied. I was annoyed with this conversation and the accusatory tone.
“She’s lying,” Marlo stated. “She’s kept count. It’s all right here.” Marlo threw my book onto the table, the book she had found in the Atlanta condo. After changing out of my dress and into something more comfortable for the ride back to Ohio, I had tucked the book in my jacket.
