Seditious is the perfect title for the 4th book in The Light-Bearer Series. This book captures jealousy, deceit, and restoration of love flawlessly.

Life at the Castle Charmeine is blissful until reality of the ruling the Elder Council of the Blood-Hunters causes dissent. An unexpected depth to both Tabbruis and Dmitri’s personalities humanizes both men.

This novel shows a side to Tabbruis and Charmeine’s relationship which will throw any reader of The Light-Bearer Series off kilter.

Seditious is the continuation of their romantic and turbulent love story and mission on Earth to battle Lucifer’s minions!

Lord Cromwell is a lethal Blood-Hunter who has escaped the Elder Council Prison. He sends his beautiful agent to cause destruction to those who live at the Castle Charmeine.

Bathsheba is a deadly, sexy, and vicious siren who threatens Charmeine and Baby Hunter. Not just with her present actions, but, with the past she shares with Tabbruis and Dmitri. However, the family works together to unravel Bathsheba’s deadly secrets.

Just when you think they are in the clear, a more heinous and ominous villain waits in the wings to tear apart our ill-fated lovers, Charmeine and Tabbruis.

Seditious is a heart wrenching and exciting story of passion, betrayal, and redemption you will not want to miss!

Excerpt from SEDITIOUS 

Charmeine knew this beautiful woman was a very powerful Blood-Hunter. She felt Baby Hunter kicking and fought to control her anxiety.

92747-230x338-longblackleather“Ah, yes, very good gentlemen. We have her now.” The mysterious woman told the men in a thick, French accent. She gazed with wide spellbinding eyes at Charmeine. She looked like a cat ready to pounce on her prey.

The man who held Charmeine pushed her to go out the terrace doors.

She knew this was a kidnapping and worried for Baby Hunter. Charmeine struggled to gain some kind of fighting advantage.

The Light-Bearers practiced their self-defense skills with her daughter, Sandra, and worked on how to get out these hand-binding holds. After Charmeine’s encounters with Pascal, she never wanted to feel helpless again.

With speed and accuracy, Charmeine used her power to fly up backwards over the head of the Blood-Hunter. She broke out of his grip. Immediately, she leveled him with a powerful and fierce bolt of white electricity which stunned him into a stupor.

280841726732729279_JGyWr6AN_fPercival took this opportunity to sweep the legs of the man who held him. He stunned his assailant, and made him fall down in pain with a green charge which ran through his body.

“Use your light for Athena!” Charmeine yelled to Percival.

Percival threw a green lightning bolt at the man who held Athena.

Within a second, the Blood-Hunter was on the ground. A green current cursed through him.

 “Halt!” the Blood-Hunter woman demanded.

Charmeine looked up and a hand gun was aimed at her belly.

imagesCAKL4X1Q.jpg1The woman widened her indigo eyes with her fangs exposed. She threatened, “You really never know where a bullet will go? Do you?” she laughed.

Her maniacal giggles curdled Charmeine’s blood. She could tell the Blood-Hunter woman was telling the truth.

6781575-mid-section-of-a-man-touching-the-tummy-of-his-pregnant-woman.jpg1“Yes, the bullet could just land somewhere very unhealthy for your unborn spawn.” She circled Charmeine like a shark swimming around its prey. “Not that hurting spawn of this Light-Bearer scum would matter,” she quipped in a matter-of-fact way.

Charmeine began to feel waves of nausea and fought the urge to be sick.

“The offspring is just a by-product.” With a sinister laugh the woman scoffed, “Yes, a by-product which should be tossed aside and thrown away like the trash it is . . . as soon as we cut it out of you!”

The Blood-Hunter woman began to laugh with a vicious tone and stuck the gun in Charmeine’s belly ready to pull the trigger.

My Review 

Vampires of the Scarlet Order

Book 1 By Author David Lee Summers

David Lee Summers Vampire-Scarlet-Order-800x1190Soldiers of fortune and seekers of acceptance is the way I would describe the first book, Vampires of the Scarlet Order by Award Winning Author David Lee Summers.

The novel opens with an introduction to a young man wanting to obtain revenge and suffering from extreme loneliness. In the High Middle Ages, he meets Lord Draco, and is recruited to the Scarlet Order vampire mercenaries.

I was entranced with the history.  I felt like I was there.  Fear and honor ran through my fingertips as I read. It was strange, but the alliance with the Church, seemed to almost make sense. A great character and somewhat sad, Lord Draco endeared himself to my soul.

Quickly, I was whisked away from the Middle Ages to the Wild, Wild West in the United States. I felt like the shift happened flawlessly.  The real life characters were written so well, that I thought I was actually getting an eyewitness encounter with Billy the Kid!

Then to Modern Times we come to more characters which emerge and captured my attention. I loved the way Mr. Summers does not “villainize” the vampires. He makes me want to cheer for them and cry for their loneliness and heartbreaks.

Vampires of the Scarlet Order took me on a wild ride from year to year and century to century. I absolutely became enthralled with the characters. Desmond, Lord Draco being my favorite!  Even if you are not a fan of Paranormal, this novel should be on your list.

What got me is that even after reading it, I’m still wondering about the Vampires of the Scarlet Order. I love the cover too, it seems to leap at me!

For this, and so much more, I will have to rate this novel as FIVE STARS and must read for all!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About

Vampires of the Scarlet Order:

Vampires of the Scarlet Order is an action-adventure novel about an elite cadre of vampire mercenaries who have worked throughout history as pinpoint assassins. Under the command of Desmond, Lord Draco, the Scarlet Order worked for the Spanish Inquisition, Napoleon, and helped to defeat the Ottoman Empire. Now, at the dawn of the 21st century, vampires are too expensive, too untrustworthy, and frankly, too passé for governments to employ any longer. Nanotechnology can be employed to engineer more reliable super soldiers. What’s a vampire got to do for job security?

Excerpt from

Vampires of the Scarlet Order

From the journals of Dr. Jane Heckman:    Toward a Theory of Vampirism

I have been a vampire for just over a month now and I’m still sorting out what exactly it means to “be a vampire.” I am not aware of any formal, scientific study of vampires. It would appear that we are rare creatures. Classical studies such as Montague Summers’ The Vampire, His Kith and Kin and The Vampire in Europe do little more than survey vampire literature and relate second and third-hand accounts of vampire encounters. More recent studies do little more.

My own field is ballistic and explosive physics, not anthropology, biology or any other field of study that might be more relevant to the study of vampires, which are also known by such names as nosferatu, revenant, vrykolakas and so forth depending on the region of the vampire’s origin. This journal will endeavor to be a first-hand account of my observations. However, since the study of creatures such as vampires is outside my discipline, these notes may lack completeness.

I was born a human but became a vampire through a process of being attacked by a vampire that drank my blood. I, in turn, drank the blood of the attacking vampire. My attacker claims to be a 550-year-old vampire who calls himself Rudolfo.

* * *

sendhil069wk2“For the record, my name is Rudolfo Jésus Juan Ramírez de Córdoba.” Rudolfo’s voice caused me to jump involuntarily.

“How long have you been looking over my shoulder?” I asked huffily laying my pen down.

“Only a few minutes. I saw the title and thought I’d do what I could to clear up any misconceptions you may give your poor readers about me or about vampires in general.” Rudolfo shrugged nonchalantly.

I took a deep breath then let it out slowly. “I’d rather you not stare over my shoulder.”

Rudolfo grinned. “What do I have better to do than watch a beautiful woman work? Besides, it’s interesting.”

I waved my hands at the older vampire. “You could go watch television or something. There’s lots of women to watch there.”

“I hate television,” said Rudolfo, wrinkling his nose. “The stories jump all around. Just as they get interesting, some shill comes on to sell me something I don’t need. It’s very annoying.”

“All right, all right,” I relented. “Get a chair or something, just don’t stand there. It makes me nervous.” I paused for a moment then looked at Rudolfo again, my brow furrowed. “Are you really a vampire named Jésus?”

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” he said, eyes twinkling as he pulled up a chair.

* * *

blackandwhitephotographyfacefemalemirrorreflection-64898a07781698ac7d311da16306a8df_hAs a vampire, I find my outward appearance is very nearly the same as it was when I was human. At the time I became a vampire, I was a woman of 42. Admittedly, some of the changes I record are qualitative: My skin has become smoother and more taut, yet somewhat more pale, taking on something of an alabaster quality. My eye color seems more vivid. My lips seem fuller and a brighter shade of red.

My senses also seem to be improved. I can hear fainter sounds and see more distant objects. Looking up at the night sky, I am able to distinguish the rings of Saturn, something well beyond normal human ability. I should emphasize that my vision does not seem to magnify objects. I simply seem to have improved resolution, as though there are more rods and cones in my eyes. Perhaps an eye test with a qualified optometrist would be in order.

I appear to have acquired the ability to sense the thoughts of others and to project my own thoughts into the minds of others. Though various studies have been made, I know of no study that has definitively demonstrated the existence of telepathy in humans. I also know of no satisfactory hypothesis describing a mechanism for telepathy. Perhaps further study of this ability with vampires would yield better results than it has with humans.

I have become stronger. It is much easier for me to load my crossbow than before I became a vampire. I can now easily subdue and feed upon human males that I estimate to be two and a half times my weight. Because I was neither a violent person nor the subject of an attack prior to becoming a vampire, I do not know what I was capable of as a human. However, I strongly suspect I was not capable of such a feat of physical prowess.

More quantitatively: My canine teeth now extend approximately 0.125 inches below the neighboring teeth. In spite of what is shown in many vampire movies, my canine teeth do not retract, they are fixed much like those of a dog.

* * *

“What an unflattering comparison,” muttered Rudolfo.

Turning around, I scowled at him. “What do you mean? Dogs have long canine teeth. It’s a reasonable comparison.”

“So do cats,” he said, grinning wistfully, displaying his own fangs. “And I would say you have feline grace and charm.”

“If you don’t stop interrupting, you’ll see what a bitch I can be,” I growled.
