Passing on the Book Love

I recently finished this book and LOVED IT!

Pale Immortal
by Anne Frasier is spellbinding, captivating, creepy and definately not predicable. It's a vampire novel, yet not. It's suspense with a twist. It's so amazingly well written that I couldn't put it down and took to my bed *coughcough* so I could read it uninterupted. That, my friends, is the mark of a good book, lol!

View the Pale Immortal music video below for a good feel of the novel. Then rush to your nearest Borders, B&N or indy bookseller, or hope on Amazon to order this book. And don't be surprised if you need to keep the lights on while you read it. And visit Anne's website and her blog for more information about Pale Immortal and her other spine tingling books. I also suggest you listen to the soundtrack and mp3s, read the first two chapters, and learn more at:

Oh, and side note - Amazon only has 5 books in stock! But are of course ordering more. Go Anne!

Here's a synopsis of the book:

Welcome to Tuonela, a sleepy Wisconsin town haunted by events of 100 years ago, when a man who may have been a vampire slaughtered the town's citizens and drank their blood. Now, another murderer is killing the most vulnerable...and draining their bodies of blood.

Evan Stroud lives in darkness. The pale prisoner of a strange disease that prevents him from ever seeing the light of day, he lives in tragic solitude, taunted for being a "vampire." When troubled teenager Graham Stroud appears on Evan's doorstep, claiming to be his long-lost son, Evan's uneasy solitude is shattered.

Having escaped Tuonela's mysterious pull for several years, Rachel Burton is now back in town, filling in as coroner. Even as she seeks to identify the killer, and uncover the source of the evil that seems to pervade the town, she is drawn to Evan by a power she's helpless to understand or resist....

As Graham is pulled deeper and deeper into Tuonela's depraved, vampire-obsessed underworld, Rachel and Evan team up to save him. But the force they are fighting is both powerful and elusive...and willing to take them to the very mouth of hell.
