This is a tidbit from a novel I'm writing as part of the new Romance with Bite vampire series. The story will first appear in a the Halloween in Savannah boxset and then be offered as a single title.
“It’s worse than we first suspected. The order has targeted several young witches who have yet to join a coven for protection. Our Oracle said they plan to execute at least one in Savannah Georgia on All Hallows Eve.”
Etienne expelled a heavy breath as if exhausted by the topic. “Every time I cut off one head of the monster, two more rise. Humans are such hateful beings. Anything that differs from what they consider the norm is fair game for attack. I too have received news of Savannah. Krystal Le Beau told me that the two of us were needed there. Her gift is one I’ve learned to heed. Inform our breather at Hotel Indigo we shall arrive tonight. Oh, and pack a costume. It looks like we will be in attendance at the All Hallows Eve Ball.”
Darius inclined his head. “Which weapons would you like packed? Swords or tranqs?”
“Swords. I know the evil that leads this group. There is now need to show mercy nor question them.”
“Yes, Sir. I will take care of everything and be ready to leave within the hour.”
“Thank you, Darius.” With that, Etienne turned back to his garden and smiled.
