About The Supernatural Chronicles: The New Orleans Collection:

Beneath the brow of Bourbon and French architecture, the iris of New Orleans swirls with flecks of worlds and beings unknown to mankind. Come with us as we chronicle their journey—each supernatural race must hunt for an offering in hopes of saving their own. Skinwalkers, Wolves, Vampires, Dragons, Succubi, Witches, Necromancers, Cupids, and Asgardians are all in danger of losing control as an uprising darkness threatens to rip the veil that protects them all from the great beyond.

Ten original novellas, following each supernatural race as they fight an elusive enemy, are written by New Adult authors Lila Felix, Kristie Cook, Brenda Pandos, Delphina Henley, Julia Crane, Jamie Magee, Morgan Wylie, Kallie Ross, S.T. Bende, and Rebecca Ethington. Come join them for the hunt and discover hidden treasures inside.

Today I want to focus on one of the stories, The Vampires by Brenda Pandos.

Synopsis:

After having just survived near annihilation, eighteen-year-old Julia and her vampire friends have reveled in the afterglow, and are now bored. Thankful their enemy is sleeping off the defeat quietly in Julia’s vaults for all eternity, they need a new challenge.

When a letter from the supposed Noir begs for their help with a riddle, it becomes their first case. Not taking the threat seriously, the night loving crew turns the quest into a challenge: First person to solve the mystery, gets to be their new Justice League’s leader. They soon learn it’s not a joke, and once they head to New Orleans, they find others who’d love nothing more than to stand in their way. The threat is real, and unless they figure out what offering the riddle is referring to, all hell will be let loose, literally, rendering them powerless.

Will Julia be able to give up what’s required: a true sacrifice?

Let the hunt begin.

Supernatural Chronicles: The Vampires, by Brenda Pandos, is the third in the collection and it features characters from Brenda’s popular Talisman Series.

Excerpt:

“Dr. V discovered vampires have a thing for the hormones secreted when your victim feels fear.” Harry’s glance flicked between the four of us. “The hormones secreted for one human is difficult to resist, but in huge doses, it’s irresistible. By pouring the contents in here,” he gestured to a hole in the top of the beacon, “it should attract a vamp from a hundred miles away like moths to a flame. Once they touch the stone…”

Nicholas moved behind me as if he knew what was to come next.

“Take cover,” Harry warned.

Phil grabbed onto Sam and ducked behind the couch at the same time Harry put his hand on the outside of the statue. Bright light shot out in every direction. I brought up my hand to shield my eyes, but the rays didn’t hurt me. The pungent scent of singed flesh filled the air when the light bounced off a mirror and disappeared somewhere behind the couch.

“Hey, man!” Phil yelled as the smoke wafted up from behind the couch.

Harry quickly clicked the device off. “Sorry about that.”

“Sorry?” Phil stood and then quick as a flash, charged Harry, fisting his shirt. “I’d watch yourself, human.”

Harry had a tiny crossbow aimed at heart level. “Careful. I have a twitchy trigger finger.”

About the Author:

Brenda

Mommy warrior, comma-kazi, wife, computer whisperer, Pinterest addict, chocolate enthusiast, vampire and zombie slayer, merman magnet, and lover of all things pure and right. Well… maybe after a cup of coffee or two.

Author Brenda Pandos lives in California and is surrounded by the loves of her life—her husband, her incredible boys, a grumpy cat, eight chickens and her characters. Before becoming a full-time author, she worked as an IT administrator. After her son’s ASD diagnosis, everything changed. Being pregnant and embarking on a 35 hour a week in-home therapy schedule was grueling to say the least. She craved a meaningful escape.

Never having aspired to write before, she wrote her own vampire tale for kicks. Four months later, The Emerald Talisman was born. Unsure who’d want to buy her novel, she entered her fledgling book in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and placed as a Quarter-finalist. That gave her the courage to go Indie and from there, she traversed into a life she’d never imagined and loves to this day. And since a small group of fans grew into a larger group of fans, all cheering her onto books two, three, four, five… and so on, she hasn’t looked back.
