The Evolution of Sarah

When I started writing Fade to Black, Sarah was a very angry person. I mean, you would be too if you were attacked and changed into a werewolf against your will. She was a survivor, and she made sure that no one would ever make her a victim again. So of course the events in the final chapters of Fade were going to rock her world (sorry, no spoilers). When it came time to write the sequel, Malevolent Dead, I knew that Sarah was going to be shaken from her discovery. She wasn’t going to be as strong as she was before, but I wasn’t sure by how much. Sarah had relied on her anger and rage for the better part of five years. Six months wasn’t going to be long enough to put those feelings aside and be comfortable in her own skin. Don’t get me wrong, she was still Sarah. She could still fight and be strong when she needed to be, but don’t trust her to make big decisions after the events in Fade to Black.

Malevolent Dead picks up six months after the events in Fade to Black, and Sarah is starting to feel like she has her life back. Trust a vampire to ruin everything. She never dreamed that another vampire would arrive, disputing Damian’s claim over the throne to Charleston, SC. To make matters worse, he is no ordinary vamp; he’s a vampire necromancer. He’s exceptionally hard to kill and Sarah is going to have to do whatever she can to keep those that she loves safe, even if it means doing the unthinkable.
