The Kindred Curse Anthology
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A disease passed to each new generation of descendants attracts vampires. Pieces of family history and the secrets to survival are lost as the lineage progresses. The Kindred Curse Anthology prequels lead you back in time, revealing the root of a dynasty's plight and a beginning that ultimately transcends the family's end.Consisting of five short stories, each subsequent book in this anthology is written as a prequel to the prior. The matriarch of the family, Anna Sprengel, survives a vampire poisoning. Her tainted blood is passed down to each new generation, morphing into deadly auto-immune diseases. However, no descendant can escape the magnetic-like pull they have toward vampires - and vampires have toward the family. Loosely based on the true story of the foundations of the Order of the Golden Dawn, Anna foresees the destruction of the world, and joins forces with a vampire in order to prevent the total loss of both races. But every member of the family in each generation must play their part. Constantly on the run from vampires, their instincts for self-preservation overcome even their kindred bonds. Anna is no longer around to ensure the prophecy is carried out by her family, but her vampire cohort, Xavier, is. Even if he can overcome the sensual pull toward Isabelle, the prophecy remains precarious as the future of both races is at stake.
An enjoyable read!
I enjoyed how the author went back in time, from one story to the next, to get you to truly understand why certain characters carry certain burdens/emotions etc. I love it when you read and get that " ah ha" moment of realization and everything starts to fit into place! You can't help but care for all the characters regardless of their situation, as they all have a crucial role to play. I certainly hope Terra Harmony writes a sequel!!! For it will be another anticipated book I cannot wait to read!
