Cameo and the Vampire
I am so excited to be able to announce that today the third book in the Trilogy of Shadows has been released! What a treat for Halloween!
A vampire’s bite tormenting Cameo, she pushes forth on a journey that will find her descending into darkness and at Kyrian’s request she is forced into the confrontation she has been avoiding for over fifty years with the undead that made her…
For those of you unfamiliar with Cameo and her story, you can read my review of the first book in the Trilogy of Shadows: Cameo the Assassin.
You can also get familiar with Cameo from one of my favorite character interviews of all time: Dawn Interviews Cameo and Black Opal
The Kingdom of Sieunes is rife with taverns, dirty streets, and clay pipe smoking citizens all toiling to feed their families and keep themselves in something little better than rags. With a foiled revolution just ten years prior still burning in the hearts of many, the royals enlist the aid of assassins to keep things in order. The townsfolk entertain themselves by dreaming of better times to come and regaling in stories of the undead said to walk the graveyards at night. . . and of Cameo the killer with corpse-like eyes. . .Scarred and jaded Cameo is one of the most effective assassins in the employ of the Association, moving from one mission to the next as long as the alcohol keeps flowing. Her acceptance of the murder-for-hire lifestyle is thrown into doubt when she meets a local highwayman with a penchant for fine clothes and women, and then she begins to think about breaking with the company but no one ever breaks with the Association under good terms.
Cameo, the hard drinking assassin, Black Opal the silver-tongued highwayman and Kyrian the innocent young acolyte journey to Shandow with a mission from Cameo’s vampire master. Along the way Cameo is ambushed by the other vampire, who it seems, has been waiting for her. Black Opal is plunged into danger as his past is revealed, and he is forced to face his demons head-on. An old nemesis returns, and Cameo must make a choice that will cost her the last shred of humanity she has left.
