Everyone loves to hear and read about new and upcoming authors. Today I introduce Kaitlyn Price, author of Avenging Amethyst. This is Kaitlyn’s debut novel.
Avery and her mother have always been on the run. After her mother is murdered by something supernatural, she is left to fend for herself, alone and filled with questions. She receives a note by a stranger, giving her the opportunity to get some answers, and Avery warily accepts. She would rather face the truth than continue to be on the run.
What she discovers is nothing like she could’ve imagined. The stranger’s name is Felix, and he’s part of a race of creatures called Lovac. He tells Avery that she is a Lovac, too, and that they’re the distant descendants of the ancient vampire Nosferatu, along with two other races—the Nesmyr and Zhulik.
However, the Lovac are doomed to insanity, and nearly all of them lose their minds in their early twenties. The only way to be saved from the curse is for a Lovac to find their Dimidium, the one creature that can calm the darkness.
Nightmarish visions, kidnappings, and a lifestyle she never knew existed consume Avery’s life as she begins the search for her Dimidium and to get revenge for her mother’s death. –Goodreads
This is a great twist on vampires and the like by a debut author. I really enjoyed this! The characters are great and well defined, each with a unique personality. Avery struggles with the death of her mother all while avowing to avenge her. She is coming of age and learning who she really is and the powers she never knew she had. The way her and Felix go back and forth keeps you tuned in just to see what happens next. This is a great introduction to what I’m sure will be a great series.
Kaitlyn lives in Colorado with a house full of crazy animals. She is a huge fan of vampires, and while they might be overdone, she will still continue to write about them and read any vampire book she can get her hands on.
