Sabrina is becoming a magical creature—not just a clairvoyant with ring that thwarts a vampire's thrall. In this exciting third installment, Sabrina learns how to travel the ley lines, and travels to another world called Beyond the Black Veil ~ a world where vampires out number humans ten to one, and humans are merely blood donors and objects of their sexual desires.

The Dagger of Delphi becomes her weapon of choice. And what becomes of Dante Badheart, whose spirit essences is contained in the stone he gave her when last he spoke to her from the dead, is another mystery that intrigues her.

Sabrina Strong's cousin, Lindee, has disappeared, and when she goes to the last place Lindee was seen, she finds herself transported to another world and century, where vampires rule. While trying to solve the mystery of where Lindee could be in this world, Sabrina encounters Drakulya—the real-life Dracula—a.k.a. The Impaler—who has somehow managed to become a vampire living in this strange world, and rules as King. He is mystified by Sabrina's various abilities (like being able to disappear at will from her imprisonment), and he's decided she's to become his blood dame. Meanwhile his son, Jett, simply wants her, despite the fact he is to marry a vassal's daughter, Penelope.

After discovering that some unusual creatures, called Dreadfuls, who spread sickness and death through the village, she realizes she is the only one who has the power to stop them. Drakulya's own wife, who is near death, has been infected by these Dreadfuls. When it is discovered she can “kill” them, Drakulya gives her high status in his house (yep, no longer a mere blood donor). Now Sabrina's services have become high in demand, and she has to figure out who is the creator of these creatures before it's too late. She needs to solve this mystery before she can find Lindee, and must go up against a blood broker who may be behind the murder of a popular and well-known blood dame.

Aside from the usual suspects—some of who may be more into her blood—she encounters adventure, danger and of course handsome men of this world.


  1. Maybe he'll meet up with a vampire female doggie?

    Thanks boys. The Ball runs up till midnight today, and that's the end of it. The vampires will go back home to their respective haunts, and Sir Poops can come out of hiding.

    Thanks to Hair Ball and Sir Poops and Mumsy for posting this - chocolate hugs to you all!

    1. Your welcome. Vampires have great legs to hug. Strong and sturdy.

      Lots of licks,
      Hair Ball

  2. To each his own, Hair Ball. (^;

  3. Congratulations Lorelei and I hope you all have fun at the ball! Is that a Hair Ball? LOL

  4. What's he doing to the vampire's leg? Yikes! He's so sweet with his little shiny eyes :-D

  5. Lorelei, it definitely sounds like you've got a good take on the genre!

    Not sure I'd want to see vampire SPAL or Hairball terrorizing the internet!

    1. Its my crazy little brother who wants to run with the vampires not me.

      Lots of licks,
      Sir Poops

  6. Congrats on your new book! I wish you all success!

  7. ooooh, sounds like a fun party, mwahahaha! Be careful, HB!

  8. Nice weblog right here! Additionally your web site a lot

    associate link for your host? I want my site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  9. It seems rather fitting that their doggy eyes glow. *grins evilly*

  10. HB, when are you gonna stop teasing SPAL?!
    These two are always at it! *chuckles*

    1. You should see them in real life. Hair Ball taunts all the time. Sir Poops taunts only with his morning cookie. They're a trip.

  11. ooh, a vampire ball sounds...okay I was going to say fun, but I think maybe I'll just hide under the bed with Sir Poops.

  12. A vampire ball does sound interesting, because I'm up for a good party. But I think I'd only attend if I was a vampire myself...just a little too chicken to get bitten. But my gown would be fabulous!
