The Search (Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series)
Allison Carmichael is thirsty for blood and hungry for answers.
Lured away from her illicit extracurricular activities by news about her kidnapped husband, Allison rejoins her adopted family that’s promised to help her find him. Allison's search is detoured, however, by sinister vampire politics, the seeming good will of her fanged family, and the return of her nemesis. Circumstances unfold that shatter the foundation of her world.
In order to successfully play the game she has been thrust into, Allison must battle loss and betrayal and accept unexpected love.
THE SEARCH is on for answers, but when answers are found, will they be what Allison was looking for?
The castle door burst open and two sets of boots thudded over the floor. Lorenzo and Felix rushed into the dining room, shirts untucked, jeans ripped and messy hair.
“Where’s Jenna?” I demanded. I looked beyond them searching for her but didn’t see or hear her.
“Gone,” Lorenzo responded.
“What do you mean gone?”
“We were ambushed,” Felix said.
“Ambushed?” I questioned.
“By whom?” Vincent asked.
“Two guys…” Lorenzo started.
“Wait, you are trying to tell me that two men ambushed you?” I questioned. “You’re vampires! You are stronger than a thousand men.”
“They were gypsies,” Felix stated matter-of-factly, as if that should have explained it all.
“So? You couldn’t protect Jenna from two gypsies?”
“Not with the magic they were spinning. We hit a patch of ice and Jenna lost control of the car. As the car came to a halt, snow started swirling like a tornado and we were in the center of it. We couldn’t see anything; we were surrounded by white.”
“And then these two guys just appeared outside of the car. Felix and I went to get out of the car, but the seatbelts snapped across our bodies and trapped us.”
“And with all of your strength, you couldn’t rip through the seatbelts?” I questioned.
“No, we couldn’t. Their spell incapacitated us, held our arms at our sides; we were defenseless. And then they grabbed Jenna.”
“She tried to put up a fight but they cast a spell on her to knock her out.”
“Then what? Did they say anything?”
“They left without saying a word. The squall went on for a few more minutes but eventually died down as the spell wore off. But they were long gone; we couldn’t even pick up a trail. They knew who they were dealing with when they approached us and they definitely knew what they were doing.”
“What would gypsies want with Jenna?”
“They left a note,” Felix said. “It was knifed to the steering wheel.” Felix held out a piece of paper. I snatched it and scanned the words.
“Damn it,” I cursed.
“I know,” Lorenzo said.
“What is it?” Max asked.
“These two gypsies must be conspiring with Jal,” I said.
“What does the letter say?”
“To bring the key to the Emerald Necklace in order to unlock the Garden.”
