Every thousand years the Vampire Queen selects a new body, always the fairest in the land, and this time she's chosen Snow White.

Snow isn't an ordinary girl. She doesn't know that yet.

When Snow gets bitten by a Hunter, her life is thrown into a whirlwind of change where instead of worrying about what to eat, she has to fight not to drink the blood of fellow high school students. She becomes a revenant - not quite human, not quite vampire.

With the help of an eccentric old Professor, his seven adoptive sons, and her best friend, Snow learns to control her blood craving. Sort of. She drinks a bloodlust tea, but she'd rather drink from her Hunter.

Or, a human.

She also discovers a whole other realm, one filled with fairies, dragons, and magic. And not only does the Vampire Queen want her, but there's a pendant called the Seal of Gabriel created for Snow by the Vampire Queen's twin sister. And Snow's supposed to use it to restore balance to all magical creatures. Including vampires.

The Inevitable Bloglovin Post

I'm always a bit late for everything, but let's just get this out of the way . . .

Google is shutting down Google Reader. As of July 1 this year, we will not be able to access it, so everyone's talking of alternate ways to subscribe to someone's blog.

Some alternate subscription ways I already had are Feedburner (on the sidebar), Linky, and Networked Blogs. Another alternative would be RSS. You can either subscribe through the page connected to email subscirbtions, or the feed I burned solely for to be used for RSS. Find the email feed here and the RSS feed here.

But because Feedburner may or may not be taken down by Google somewhere in the near future, and because I've personally had a few problems with it, I've got to provide an alternate way for you to subscribe, don't I? This is where Bloglovin comes in. Bloglovin's quite simple, and fairly easy to use. Your fave blog doesn't have Bloglovin? Don't worry; you can still subscribe to them through Bloglovin. You can subscribe and unsubscribe to someone's blog quite easily, and can choose to have emails sent straight to your inbox. For the emails, you can choose to have a daily email of a compilation of all the blogs you have subscribed to, an email whenever a blog post is posted, or none at all. Easy? Then subscribe to Lust For Stories below!

In the Arena, you're either a killer or a victim.

If survival meant murdering an innocent person in cold blood every week, could you do it? Are you able to stick the knife into your opponent's heart while they look at you with fear in their eyes? Life in the Arena turns everyone into sinners.

A homeless boy is kidnapped from the streets and finds himself imprisoned in a far more horrifying place: The Arena, a place where teenage boys fight to the death for the pleasure of various lowlifes.

The Arena is the brainchild of Ryker, an ex-convict addicted to alcohol, gladiatorial-esque combats, and money. When not devising new ways for boys to kill each other, he’s ruling his small empire with a ruthless fist, rewarding his guards with sex slaves and punishing those who oppose him with barbaric executions.

Renamed Dog, the boy from the street proves to be an excellent fighter and finds himself surviving week after week, but as he leaves a trail of bodies in his wake, the ghosts of slain boys haunt him and the violence threatens to wake a beast inside him.

Allegra, a slave girl in the Arena and a victim of Ryker's constant abuse, is his only key to salvation. She has lost everything already -- her family, her innocence, and her dignity -- while her will to live hangs on by a thin thread. Can she save Dog's humanity before she too succumbs to the horrors of the Arena?

Seeking to defy Ryker as Dog rises to power as his champion, the stage is set for something to give in this murderous world of young combatants.

A tale about survival, tragedy, and human perseverance, the Complete SHADOW OF WRATH is the first book in the Sins of the 7 series.
