Being different is never easy, especially when you’re a vampire.
Ashlyn is far from normal. She was born a vampire, a trait that makes her utterly unique. Knowing this, her family strived to keep her existence a secret. Tragedy forces her from hiding and hunger drives her into the open. Unfortunately, living in a world that has accepted, embraced, and yet still fears the supernatural is never a good place to stand out. Especially when the one who notices you wants you dead. The only people who can save her want to use her as well, but she’s left with little choice. Ashlyn joins the FBI and becomes torn between two worlds. She can either be a monster, or she can help destroy them.

Ashlyn Thorn is a breath of fresh air! After 17 years of a sheltered life, due to her vampiric tendencies, she is tragically left on her own.So, alone and unsure of herself what does our young fanged friend do? Does she find herself a beguiling young man to save her from her woes? Hell no. This girl comes from the depths of Sean Hayden’s twisted imagination, fully equipped with a foul mouth and a badass attitude…eventually. She is not your average “damsel in distress”. After a few hiccups, and who wouldn’t find themselves in a bit of trouble when they’re loose and unsupervised in the big bad world, Ashlyn finds herself in a rigorous supernatural boot camp, preparing for an Elite position with the FBI. This promises to be an intriguing series and I cannot wait until the next book!
