Blood doesn't just make her who she is but what she is. Can her blood also define what she becomes?

As if being a sixteen-year-old vampire isn't hard enough, Tessa has just enough human genes to make her a virtual outcast among her own blood relatives. She's always known she's different from them, her talents nothing special. If only she could get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and not mind all the blood.

When fitting in and discovering her own unique abilities like the rest of her clan possesses doesn’t seem possible, given her graceless lack of vamp magnificence, she decides to turn her back on the world she knows and embrace life as a human teenager. She attends high school, experiences peer pressure, and finds a boyfriend. Jared stirs something in her blood. He's smart and fun and cute, and, for the first time in her life, Tessa feels like maybe she can become who she's meant to be.

But Tessa's hope-filled dreams turn into a nightmare when a clan of vicious vampires who want things to go back to the Old Ways attack the movie theatre she's having her first date in, and Jared falls into their hands.

Torn between two vastly different worlds, just as she's always been, Tessa realizes to save her boyfriend and discover who she is and what she's capable of, she has to find a way to awaken the potential of the blood that flows in her veins…somehow.

Sixteen-year-old Tessa finds herself at the center of a war that a violent faction of vampires who want a steady supply of humans to feed from has started. Her boyfriend Jared has been kidnapped by the vicious vamps, and, without the unique genetic abilities the others in her peaceful clan possess, her only option is to rally friends and family to help her rescue him. In the process, they uncover a secret that disrupts everything they've ever believed and known.

The youngest of his ancient line, eighteen-year-old Cody, descends from a race of flyer vampires. When Tessa is imprisoned by the vampires holding her boyfriend, Cody's only thought is getting her back. She's the kid sister of his best friend…but the conflicting emotions he feels at her plight suggest that maybe she means something more, much more, to him.

Jared assumes his life is forfeit at the hands of the vampires who have nefarious plans for him and the other humans they've caged with him.  When another clan of vampires rescues him, he's left with no idea who to trust. The last thing he expects is for the girl he was falling for prior to his kidnapping, Tessa, to be one of the vamps. But, since she's also imprisoned, does that mean she's a good one? His life is turned upside-down as his beliefs about the world as he's always known it are drastically altered.

A war between humans and good and bad vampires is on the precipice of breaking loose all around Tessa, Jared and Cody – a war that promises to show them no mercy.

Warning - there is some swearing and this book ends with a cliffhanger ending! Book 2 (Deadly Designs picks ups where this one ends off.)  

Drawing is her world...but when her new pencil comes alive, it's his world too. 

Her... Storey Dalton is seventeen and now boyfriendless after being dumped via Facebook. Drawing is her escape. It's like as soon as she gets down one image, a dozen more are pressing in on her. Then she realizes her pictures are almost drawing themselves...or is it that her new pencil is alive? 

Him... Eric Jordan is a new Ranger and the only son of the Councilman to his world. He's crossed the veil between dimensions to retrieve a lost stylus. But Storey is already experimenting with her new pencil and what her drawings can do - like open portals. 

It... The stylus is a soul-bound intelligence from Eric's dimension on Earth and uses Storey's unsuspecting mind to seek its way home, giving her an unbelievable power. She unwittingly opens a third dimension, one that held a dangerous predatory species banished from Eric's world centuries ago, releasing these animals into both dimensions. 

Them... Once in Eric's homeland, Storey is blamed for the calamity sentenced to death. When she escapes, Eric is ordered to bring her back or face that same death penalty. 

With nothing to lose, can they work together across dimensions to save both their worlds?
