As a journalist, Cassidy DiRocco thought she had seen every depraved thing New York City’s underbelly had to offer. But while covering what appears to be a vicious animal attack, she finds herself drawn into a world she never knew existed. Her exposé makes her the target of the handsome yet brutal Dominic Lysander, the Master Vampire of New York City, who has no problem silencing her to keep his coven's secrets safe…
But Dominic offers Cassidy another option: ally. He reveals she is a night blood, a being with powers of her own, including the ability to become a vampire. As the body count escalates, Cassidy is caught in the middle of a vampire rebellion. Dominic insists she can help him stop the coming war, but wary of his intentions, Cassidy enlists the help of the charming Ian Walker, a fellow night blood. As the battle between vampires takes over the city, Cassidy will have to tap into her newfound powers and decide where to place her trust...
The City Beneath by Melody Johnson
The City Beneath is a swift moving paranormal adventure that lays deep in the depths of New York City.
Cassidy is your every day journalist looking for the next best scoop when her world collides with Dominic Lysander, master vampire. Dominic tells Cassidy that she is a “night blood”. He gives Cassidy a choice, join his clan and eventually become a vampire or be silenced forever.
Just when she thought there was no escape, Ian arrives. He claims also to be a night blood and wants to destroy all vampires.
There is a war brewing deep within the vampire clan. Cassidy must decide if the enemy she knows is better than the unknown.
Lots of machinations, unexpected plot twists and a somewhat love triangle highlight this new series' plot.
Great potential for a marvelous urban fantasy, Melody Johnson's new series Night Blood is one to watch.
