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.

"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!!!"

"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
