We recently read Elle Jasper’s first Dark Ink Chronicles book Afterlight (read the spoiler-free review) and its blend of vampires, voodoo and cataclysmic lust had us begging for more by the end. We didn’t the the full emotional wrap-up at the end of Afterlight, but as we predicted Jasper has more in store for us in book 2 Everdark. We’re going to get high-intensity relationship drama, cool new abilities for our heroine Riley and more bad guys who need the beat down.
The official blurb is below, but to expedite things Jasper posted an excerpt from Everdark. And, we want. Everdark, the second Dark Ink Chronicles book, is set for release on June 7, 2011, through NAL/Signet-Eclipse. And, oh yes, we’ll be picking up a copy. How about you?
Curse the darkness…before it curses you.
Tattoo artist Riley Poe thought she knew the shady side of Savannah—until her brother was taken by a cult of vampires. Allying herself with hot-blooded vampire Eli Dupré, she got her brother back. But her courage—and her one-of-a-kind blood type—made her an irresistible temptation for some very bad bloodsuckers.
After barely surviving an ambush by enemy undead, she has inherited certain traits of her attackers: heightened senses, lightning reflexes, unreal strength. Eli trains Riley to use her new vampiric tendencies, teaching her control and skills she’s never imagined needing. But when a new trait—a telepathic link with a rampaging vampire—manifests itself, Riley knows she has to put her new skills to the test to stop the killer before he strikes again.
Long used to taking care of herself, Riley has trouble asking for help, even from the powerful vampire she loves….
