Darkly Dreaming: Vicious and Quirky Vampire Literature for Grown-Ups (The Darkly Vampire Trilogy Book 1)
Fortysomething best friends, Rae and Layla trail broken dreams and ruined marriages as they flee to France. Disaster strikes, and they are infected by the terrifying vampire virus. Their horrifying metamorphosis brings startling gifts, powerful desires and dangerous urges. Life with the vampire Pride brings new friends, new foes, unwelcome tensions, fights, and the Rage. Together they face love, lust, heartbreak and unforeseen consequences.
Described by readers as ‘a gripping read’, ‘modern and funny’ and ‘dark and seductive’ Darkly Dreaming is a literary exploration into a sinister world where vampires lurk in our shadows. As interested in our heroines’ emotional changes as their physical transformations, the story leads you through their infection, transformation, and difficult adaption to their strange new life. We experience their hopes and compromises, heartbreaks and rage as deeply as they do. A modern gothic, these vampires aren't the undead, they have been infected by a virus and undergone as physical changes as radical as a butterfly does during metamorphosis. These vampires are as beguiling, cruel and fatal as cats, and just as irresistible.
