It includes all three books in The Rebel Vampires series by USA Today bestselling author Rosemary A Johns and is over 1,000 pages of spellbinding supernatural worlds, dark vampire romance, and seductive adventure. 

Once I was like you; I was human. Then the dark came for me: a secret Blood Life.
Light, a rebel vampire of the Blood Lifer world, has been hiding in the shadows of paranormal London since Victorian times. His only company? A savage Elizabethan Blood lifer. And he’s keeping a secret from her that breaks every rule…

Ruby’s fangs grazed my throat. “This is the next step into the light, even though we dwell in the dark. Are you ready now, dearest prince?”

I gripped Ruby by the shoulders, whilst she traced the blood from my lips. “I’m not a prince. I’m a rebel who doesn’t play nicely with others.”

“Then will you let me be your guide to this new world?”

I smirked. “As long as we can eat the earth whole.”

The vampire, anti-hero, and lover LIGHT from the REBEL VAMPIRES trilogy, celebrates his second birthday today!!

It’s been two years now since the first book in the trilogy – BLOOD DRAGONS – was first published.

Light’s been busy: he’s had a rock anthem written for him, had his own awesome video trailer, an audio book, Rebel Gear, and he’s won and been shortlisted in a number of awards, including the Wishing Shelf Book Awards, the IAN Book of the Year, and the International Rubery Book Awards.

He’s also sparked the entire REBEL VERSE, now starring Violet and REBEL ANGELS.

I’m hosting a READALONG this week of BLOOD DRAGONS, BLOOD SHACKLES, and BLOOD RENEGADES. So, send me your favourite lines, questions, or comments as we read the trilogy together!

What would you do if you had 14 days before you died?

Captain took one step towards me, his body vibrating from his jaunty strawberry blond peak of hair to his quivering knees. ‘Your nonconformity has ceased to be cute. If I can’t break a legend, do you know what I do?’

‘Send it home with a pat on the head?’

‘I snuff it out.’

Then Captain shoved. Not hard – for a Blood Lifer. This building, however, hadn’t been designed for Blood Lifers.

Crack – the glass shattered in one long sharp line, before spiderwebbing out.

Then I was falling.

Blood Renegades Dare to venture into the thrilling pages of BLOOD RENEGADES and lose yourself in the story of Light: the British vampire who is a lover, rebel and anti-hero.

He must make the ultimate choice: safety and slavery in the shadows, or freedom and death in the light…

I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

I’m grateful for my awesome readers, ‘Rebels’ and supporters.

They say writing is solitary. But you’re only alone for the time you’re lost in the world of the first draft. After that? The book becomes your readers’, and the passion of those around you is what – as a writer – helps you fly.

So… THANK YOU. You know who you!

 

Escape into BLOOD RENEGADES.

GUNPOWDER, TREASON AND PLOT – Why Fire Inspires My Books

Last night in Britain it was BONFIRE NIGHT: or the night over 400 years ago that Guy Fawkes and 12 other young men planned to blow up Parliament…and the King.

It’s a violent story of religious persecution, traitors, and betrayal. With 36 barrels of gunpowder.

When the plot was foiled the night before, Londoners lit bonfires to celebrate.

Later, effigies of Fawkes – ‘Guys’ – were burnt on the bonfires.

Why am I telling you this tale?

Because it still inspires me. Fire weaves throughout my books. Its power, danger and thrill.

BLOOD RENEGADES is built around a bonfire, with the vampire Light being the ‘Guy’:

I’ve always been attracted to the flames. That moment when the voice inside whispers to throw yourself on the bonfire, until you’re consumed Guy-like.

BLOOD RENEGADESBLOOD RENEGADES is also a violent story of persecution, traitors and betrayal. It’s written as a modern day terrorist inquiry: what’s the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter?

Who decides?

Light – a vampire anti-hero, who’s struggling for redemption and recovering from slavery – finds himself with the power to light the fuse and burn the world.

Yet if he doesn’t, then he’ll be the one burning at the end of his trial:

I glanced down through the glass to the courtyard below.

There was the bonfire, with the stake and ropes to tie me all pretty ready to roast for Easter.

 

BLOOD RENEGADES

Fire fascinates me:  in BLOOD RENEGADES, it’s Light’s familiar friend, weapon, and enemy.

Light plays with it, fights with it and is hurt by it. And if he doesn’t win the trial, he’ll be burned to ash by it…

Find out what happens to Light here.

3. Blood Shackles by Rosemary A Johns. A dark fantasy in which a vampire is hunted by humans, and bought by his enemy’s daughter. In this world, the vampires are the slaves and the humans are the masters.

2. Anno Dracula by Kim Newman. A fantasy alternative universe, in which the vampires conquered England and now hold the power. Uses real historical characters, mixed in with the fictional.

TODAY ONLY 0.99 SALE – Blood Renegades

Rebel Vampires - Blood Renegades

BLOOD RENEGADES – the latest release in the award-winning REBEL VAMPIRES series – is 0.99 for today only!

Accused of being a traitor, Light’s offered a deal by his vampire interrogator: one secret a night.

Secrets. They stain. Fester. And ultimately? They corrupt.

In BLOOD RENEGADES, Light must make the choice between revealing his darkest secrets – one every night – at first to win back what’s been stolen from him and then for the chance to win his own and family’s freedom.

‘Even I am not the original. Freedom is in our bloodline. Our blood. If that makes us rebels…then in faith every Blood Lifer here is a rebel. We are all family now.’

If he doesn’t play the game and entertain Liberty – the ruthless Blood Lifer interrogator – then in fourteen nights he’ll burn at the stake.

Reckon I’m one to go quietly with bastard death? When you tie me to that stake tomorrow I won’t stop fighting, until the flames have ghosted me to ashes.

But who is truly playing whom..?

When I was a kid, I read ONE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS (THE ARABIAN NIGHTS).

I was entranced by the story of Scheherazade, the brave heroine who tricked a king. Scheherazade stopped the king beheading her (and any other woman) by telling him a compelling story, which always ended on a cliffhanger.

The King let her live another day, just so he could hear the end of the story. At the end of a 1,000 stories, the king had fallen in love with Scheherazade, making her queen.

BLOOD RENEGADES has the same structure – except it’s over fourteen nights.

This ancient folk tale – and the power of storytelling – caught my imagination as a young writer.
