DAMNED: A Crusade Novel – Available August 30th!

Both Debbie and I are thrilled that Damned: A Crusade Novel is coming on August 30th. We had such a great time writing this book, and hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it.

Come find out what happens next with the Salamancan hunters in their struggle against the vampires who have taken over the world. The danger has never been greater as Jenn, Antonio, Jamie, Skye, Holgar, and Eriko are forced to make decisions that force them into situations that will change them forever and could put everything they have worked for at risk.

Antonio de la Cruz

There is a fine line between love and sacrifice….

Antonio would do anything for his beloved fighting partner Jenn. He protects her, even suppresses his vampire cravings to be with her. Together, they defend humanity against the Cursed Ones. But tensions threaten to fracture their hunting team and his loyalty—his love—is called into question.

Jenn, the newly appointed Hunter, aches for revenge against the Cursed One who converted her sister. And with an even more sinister power on the rise, she must overcome her personal vendettas to lead her team into battle.

Antonio and Jenn need each other to survive, but evil lurks at every turn. With humanity’s fate hanging in the balance, they must face down the darkness…or die trying.
