BLOG TOUR - Kelly Grealis



The Descendant Synopsis
 
Mortal death or eternal damnation? If those were your choices, which would you choose?


Allison Carmichael is frustrated with the doctors who can’t diagnose her seemingly common ailments. Her frustrations are further compounded by her inability to discover her life’s calling, a purpose she desperately desires yet which has eluded her for thirty years.


A car wreck throws Allison into a life she doesn’t recognize filled with vampires, centuries-old secrets, betrayal, and vengeful enemies she never knew existed.


When Allison discovers the source of her ailments and the truth about her biblical lineage, she wishes she hadn’t searched so hard for the answers she thought she wanted.


Faced with an impossible decision sacrifice her mortal life or damn her soul for eternity which will Allison choose?

And can she decide before the choice is made for her?



 
THE DESCENDANT A Vampire Tale of Biblical Proportions
 

Excerpt
 
I knew I wasn’t dying. At least that was what the other doctors had said. But what I didn’t know, and neither did any of those other doctors, was the cause of my symptoms. In fact, those supposed specialists had all declared me to be perfectly healthy and viewed my symptoms with skepticism. But I knew they were mistaken; there was something wrong with me.'
 
Amanda's 4 star review!
 
     From the first chapter I was hooked.  Kelly has taken a new approach to vampires, and coming from an avid reader of Vampire novels this one is one to add to the top.  I have always been interested in vampires, ever since I was little.  I would sit and watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer for HOURS!  Kelly has taken a traditional tale and put her own spin on it.  She references bible terms and shows you what happens to make the first vampire.  Looking for something new and intriguing and a book you cannot put down? Well look no further because it's right here in front of you :)
 
 


Book synopsis: 
 
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?

Excerpt

“I’ve already told you once and I’m going to tell you again – no. Now please get off the property before I call the police.”
Gabriela tried closing the door again but my foot didn’t budge. I stared directly into her eyes. “You will let me into this house,” I commanded, but Gabriela’s eyes didn’t react to my persuasion. I was confused as to what was going on; this had worked on every human I had tried it on. “You will let me in this house.”
“No…I…won’t.”
I tilted my head in disbelief and Gabriela mockingly tilted her head back at me. I removed my foot from the doorway but had no intention of letting her shut me out. I was going to let her think for the slightest of moments that she had won this argument. I turned to walk away when I heard, “Ali-gator.”
I turned around and as Gabriela was shutting the door asked, “What did you just say?”
Gabriela rattled off something in Spanish before saying, “I didn’t say anything.”
“Yes you did. You whispered ‘Ali-gator.’”
“Um, no I didn’t.” “My husband used to call me that.”
“Okay lady, you’re losing your mind.” She twirled her finger next to her temple as she whistled cuckoo.
If I could have breathed fire I would have in that moment. I charged Gabriela but before I could reach her I felt like I had hit a brick wall. I placed my hands out in front of me but they couldn’t cross the threshold. Gabriela’s smirk irritated me.
“I told you I wouldn’t let you enter,” she taunted and slammed the door.

Amanda's 4 Star Review

This book picks up where the first leaves off and you are following Allison on a path to find her husband Matt, and kind of answering questions about her own self.   Then there's Vincent... ohh Vincent... he makes me want to keep reading... I find myself torn between Vincent and Matt though. I want Allison to happy.   This book has twists like a rollercoaster.  You don't know its about to turn and wham!!!  It kept me off my seat the whole time.  Great Job Kelly!  Bring on the next book :)
