Zander Sin is the bad boy of rock-n-roll, known for his wealth, his temper tantrums, and his love of hedonism, but to K&R expert and newly born maran vampire Jackson Pastor, Zander Sin is something else: murderer, monster, and kidnapper. After Zander’s Whore of Babylon tour comes to Los Angeles, Jackson also learns that Zander Sin has a grudge with Jackson’s family that goes way beyond money or power, and stretches all the way back to ancient Rome.
Zander may be on everyone’s hit list, human and supernatural alike, but when Jackson learns that Zander’s keeping his younger sister Monika prisoner, he finds himself face-to-face with the most objectionable of outcomes: being forced to help Zander Sin get what he wants.
Even if it means Jackson may have to betray everyone he loves to do it.
You all can rest easy. I am done publishing books for 2014.
(I published 3 books this year. If you went back in time to tell 20-year-old me this information, 20-year-old me would have mocked you for telling unbelievable lies.)
So let’s talk about Blood Sin.
First, damn but this book was fun to write. I’m sure part of that is just due to familiarity: it’s becoming easier to write some of these characters as I’m no longer lost in the wilderness of world building and character study, allowing me to play a bit more. I think it might also be a matter of one of the main villains of the story, Zander Sin, whose villainy is so unapologetic, so removed from anything resembling guilt or remorse, so purposefully and deliberately cliche, became my equivalent of Du Champ’s ‘Fountain’ except with the word ‘vampire’ written across his chest. (I love that he all but holds up a sign that says ‘I am an evil vampire’ — and I really love that he does this hoping someone will notice.)
There are other parts of the book that fill me with unholy joy as well, but I won’t spoil them for you.
I do hope you enjoy the book. (I’ll be starting on the next one very soon.)
