BLOOD BORN
Book 1 of The Blood Prophecy

Waking up in a coffin hungry for blood is only the beginning for sixteen-year-old Ava Blue. When Chance Caldon, the hottie who dug her up, tells her that she’s half vampire, Ava’s world really turns upside down.

Half vamp? Ava can’t believe it...she doesn't even know what that means! Not until Aldric, a thousand-year-old vampire, shows up and tells her it’s true--and that he’s the one who turned her. Then Ava truly begins to believe what she is. Now she has to deal with a sudden and powerful bloodlust, the desire to see Aldric dead, and her growing crush for Chance. Ava knows she's a monster now, she can feel it; and her life is over.

But redemption isn’t lost. Aldric is giving her a chance to regain her humanity. The price? Kill a hundred vampires, or remain a bloodsucker forever.

So Ava sets out to get her life back. But killing vampires begins a battle that could destroy everything she is working toward. In the end, Ava's decisions will forever change her life and the lives of those she loves.


Praise for BLOOD BORN:

"Full of secrets and twists, Manning's action-packed YA debut is suspenseful and passionate. I devoured every word, and I'm still hungry for more Ava Blue and Chance." 
~ Trisha Wolfe, author of DESTINY'S FIRE

"BLOOD BORN proves that there are still new great vampire stories out there. With its great cast of characters, refreshing mythology and unique spin on vampire lore, Jamie Manning has created himself a stake in this successful genre." 
~ Lani Woodland, author of INTRINSICAL and INDELIBLE

"With a compelling vampire mythology and unique story, Ava's quest to come back from the undead kept me turning pages--and looking over my shoulder--late into the night." 
~ Angela Corbett, author of ETERNAL STARLING



BLOOD AWAKENING
Book 2 of The Blood Prophecy

Ava’s life went from bad to worse the night Chance became a vampire.

He won’t have anything to do with her. Ava understands why—because he blames her—but it doesn’t mean she likes it.

And it doesn’t help that she’s starting to feel something for Erik, the boy who once wanted her dead. Especially when Chance decides that he does still love her, and wants her to be with him for eternity.

But Ava wants nothing more than to be human again. At least, she thought that was all she wanted.

Now she has a choice: Humanity…or forever as a vampire with Chance.

Her best friend Kayla has a plan to distract Ava from her boy troubles, and they go in search of Kayla’s missing dad. A great idea, but one that brings Sebastian back into Ava’s life, along with his evil Maker, Zyris.

Sebastian and Zyris face off against Ava and her friends, resulting in Ava making yet another choice that changes the course of everyone’s lives, and leaves her wondering if being human again is really worth losing everything.
