RIA'S DEBUT NOVEL
In the training grounds of central New York, the vampire queen waits with her army to destroy those who rise against her.
Somewhere hidden in a Brooklyn neighborhood, a girl is kidnapped from her home by the queen’s second-in-command.
Against all odds, the fringes of an ancient, unpredictable power makes Ria too strong for her own good; her secrets make her a target for the resistance; and the off-kilter world throws her into a band of misfits fighting to right it.
But the monsters are the least of her worries if she can’t get her shit together. If only someone had written a handbook on how to be undead.
"Costanzo's unique take on 21st Century vampire culture is the fanged story we have all been waiting for. Ignoring the push for romanticized gothic-horror, Costanzo delivers a story of a young girl forced in to an immortal life full of strange creatures she never knew existed, powerful gifts she never knew she possessed, and a corrupt cultural system she has defied without even realizing it."
"It's quirky, funny and will definitely keep you entertained throughout...This book will get you from the beginning and you may forget to pick up the kids, make dinner or sleep till you finish it. It's extremely well written and on the last page you will be shouting 'where's the next one.'"
~Miss Edwina Taylor
"Just an amazing opening scene...and the way that scene concluded freaked the daylights out of me. I was hanging on every word throughout the rest of the book. This had a unique plot and memorable characters...Ria, Boden, and James, I am anxious to see where their stories lead. I will say, this is my first experience reading about a leprechaun, moreover a leprechaun that stole my heart. Actually all three of them stole my heart...I cannot wait for the next book."
