In CHOSEN (Book #4 of the Vampire Legends), Rachel Wood wakes after having just taken the leap of faith with Benji with the Blue Tablet. She searches for him, amazed she is still alive, only to find that he did not fare as well: he is mortally injured. And with only days left to live, he needs her help to survive. He needs her to find the ancient Red Amulet, the only element known to be able to heal a vampire.

Rachel embarks on a journey to save her love—a journey which will take her deep into the heart of the gravest danger. She will have to confront rival covens, and to search far and wide as she follows the trail of clues. It leads her to Hunter, to Benji’s parents, who still live in an ancient castle in Maine, on a remote island. And it leads her back home, to her family and friends, who she will have to confront once again. Her journeys take her into the heart of fraternity parties, and of old houses with hidden secrets and ancient books.

In the meantime, Rob is now a fully turned vampire—and he has never given up his feelings for Rachel. In fact, as a vampire, they are even more intense. He will stop at nothing until he finds her and has her again. Along the way, he will leave a trail of devastation, out of control with his newfound vampire powers and his lust to feed. He will confront Arielle, Rachel’s brother Marc, and even track down her sister Sarah at her dorm room in Syracuse. He will stop at nothing to find Rachel.

But Rachel is on an urgent mission herself, to save Benji, and it may be too late. When her mission finally ends, she will be left with a choice, one that will force her to choose if she will make the greatest sacrifice of her life. Is she willing to give up her life to save her one and only true love? How much is she willing to sacrifice?

CHOSEN is book #4 of the Vampire Legends series (following SWORN, TAKEN and BITTEN), and is also a standalone novel.

Book #5 in the series-AWAKENED--is now also available!

BITTEN is Book #3 in the Bestselling series THE VAMPIRE LEGENDS, which begins with SWORN (Book #1)--a FREE download on Play!

In BITTEN (Book #3 of the Vampire Legends), Rachel Wood wakes to find herself in an ancient castle, all alone. She wakes to realize she is now a vampire.

Rachel searches for answers. She wants to know where she is, how she got there, where Benji is, and what will become of her. She wants to be human again, to go back home, to make this all go away.

But it’s too late.

She meets other vampires in the castle, makes new friends, and begins to learn what it’s like to be a vampire. She learns that she has powers she never imagined possible.

But all that is not enough. She longs for home, for her high school, her friends. And she escapes.

She heads back and sees all of her friends, and fights with her parents, and goes back to school—and tries to settle back into normal life. She even meets up with Rob again, who still has feelings for her, and who invites her to the big Halloween ball.

But normal life is not meant to be for Rachel anymore. She is changing too fast, and she can’t control what’s happening to her body. She comes to realize she is not the same person she once was. After her home is ransacked by an evil coven, her parents kick her out of the house for good, leaving her nowhere to go.

In the meantime, Violet and her people are coming after Rachel, determined to use her to find and kill Benji. Benji is searching for the famed Blue Tablet that might save them all from the coming war. And Rachel, when she learns how in danger Benji is, realizes she has to be by his side. She will stop at nothing to be with him—even if that means having to choose between life and death.

BITTEN is book #3 of the Vampire Legends series (following Book #1, SWORN and Book #2, TAKEN), and is also a standalone novel.

In AWAKENED (Book #5 of the Vampire Legends), Rachel Wood wakes in Benji’s arms—except there is one problem: she cannot remember who Benji is. Heartbroken, Benji lets her go, as she insists on leaving him and returning home. Rachel arrives back in her home in Pennsylvania, and her dad and brother Mark are shocked to see her. She is even more surprised at their reaction: she can’t remember what happened exactly, but she feels sure that she was only away for a single night. Why is everyone acting so crazy, so surprised to see her? Rachel, not remembering anything else, insists on resuming her normal life. She insists on returning to her old high school in Pennsylvania, where she runs into all of her old friends, who are equally startled to see her. A new love interest arrives in her life, while she tries to shake dreams of strange omens, and of Benji, who she still doesn’t remember. She also tries to fight these strange hunger pangs that are overtaking her. In the meantime, Rob is as set as ever on finding Rachel, and he crosses the world, wreaking destruction, to get her. Benji, too, is determined to save her, to make her remember their love—while Hunter and Penelope and Matilda are on a mission to find the Waverly Tablet and prevent Violet from conquering the world. It will be a race to the end while all these forces try to converge on Rachel. But by the time they reach her, she may even be gone herself... Will Rachel remember her true love? What choice will she make? AWAKENED is book #5 of the Vampire Legends series (following SWORN, TAKEN, BITTEN and CHOSEN), and is also a standalone novel.

"Move over Twilight! Here comes Aaron Patterson!"
--Joshua Graham, bestselling author of Beyond Justice and Darkroom

"I was surprised by how much I really, really liked this book. I have not jumped on the whole "fallen angel" bandwagon, just as I didn't jump on all of the vampire stories that came out after Twilight. This is not your typical fallen angel story. It is one that has left me breathlessly waiting for the next one in the series. Hurry up please!!!"
--Sandra Stiles

"It takes rare talent for a man to write a novel from a male POV and have it published to great critical and commercial acclaim. But it takes a miracle for that same male, or in this case males, to write a novel from the POV of a teenage girl and have it turn out as incredibly as did the new StoneHouse YA by Aaron Patterson and Chris White, AIREL. From the first sentence, I felt compelled to dive into this young woman's story and just as importantly, I felt like I personally knew her, which means I laughed, stressed and cried right along with her. A beautifully written and crafted fiction about teenage innocence, faith, loss and love. A must read for teens and adults alike."
--Vincent Zandri, International Bestselling Author of The Remains, The Innocent, and Concrete Pearl

"I am happy to say that this novel is one of my favorites of its kind. I never thought I could read a novel like this and be so swept away! I am always willing to try new books, but I usually steer clear of this kind of novel. Not anymore! Not when I can be so engrossed into the character's story, like I was with the beautiful AIREL, that before I know, it's over. I kept turning the pages , wanting to, no-NEEDING, to know what was going to happen next."
--Molly Edwards, Willow Spring, NC
