Amaliya wakes under the forest floor, disoriented, famished and confused. She digs out of the shallow grave and realizes she is hungry…
… in a new, horrific, unimaginable way…
Sating her great hunger, she discovers that she is now a vampire, the bloodthirsty creature of legend. She has no choice but to flee from her old life and travels across Texas. Her new hunger spurs her to leave a wake of death and blood behind her as she struggles with her new nature.
All the while, her creator is watching. He is ancient, he is powerful, and what’s worse is that he’s a necromancer. He has the power to force the dead to do his bidding. Amaliya realizes she is but a pawn in a twisted game, and her only hope for survival is to seek out one of her own kind.
But if Amaliya finds another vampire, will it mean her salvation… or her death?

I'm not big on CGI, and the gore is a bit much for my taste, but the cover is definitely striking. I liked the first cover a lot, but I had issues with the font. But anywho, who cares what I think?
Would I buy it?
Umm, I think I already own an ecopy, but I'm not sure. (I have no idea why I haven't read this already.) I don't know if I could have the physical copy in my house because my daughter has way too active of an imagination and wouldn't be able to sleep at night if she saw it. I guess that's a good thing for a horror novel, right?
