Vampire Blood by Kathryn Meyer Griffith
« on: June 29, 2011, 11:05:24 AM »
Behind the lovely façade of a grand old theater…a bloodthirsty vampire family lurks and kills.     

"For years the vampire family lived in the shadows, hidden by the night and people’s disbelief; feeding on animals or throw away people who would never be missed. But as the family moves into an old theater, and uses it to cover up their crimes, the youngest of them are restless and determined to live as they like. Reckessly. Killing and feeding when and where they want. Feeding on who they want. Only the oldest vampires have managed to keep them in check. But no longer.

Unaware of the nightstalking menace, the townspeople of Summer Haven, Florida, blithely go about their daily lives until, one by one, they begin to disappear.  Screams are heard in the night. Fear grows. But the lost are never found…alive.

But Jenny Lacey and her father, who are hired to renovate the old Grand Theater, can’t escape when they find themselves caught up in the middle of the vampire’s war. And, in the end, it’s up to Jenny, her brother and her ex-husband to get rid of the bloodthirsty fiends that are destroying their town…if they can. "
 
Excerpt

"The creature’s fur rippled like velvet over iron. There was the crack of bone, a tearing of skin, as it reshaped before his eyes from a wolf into a sylphlike woman with long flowing blond hair, a stone white face, blood red lips, and vicious black eyes that narrowed in triumph. She spread out her hands and slightly bowed her head as if to introduce herself. She was beautiful and yet evil emanated so strongly from her that it tainted that beauty.

“Jesus help me,” her victim prayed. Then something snatched him high into the air, his feet dangling into nothingness; knocking the wind out of him and smashing his ribs. He glazed up with glassy eyes, his mind leaving. Nothing can help you now. The words echoed in what remained of his mind. You’re going to die…"
