Vampire Classmates (A Transylvanica High Short)

R. Barri Flowers
Free sample

From R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of the Transylvanica High series, featuring the young adult vampire novels, Count Dracula’s Teenage Daughter and Out for Blood, comes the prequel short story, Vampire Classmates. 

Seventeen-year-old Lydia Knight is about to start her senior year at Transylvanica High, one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist.

She is a bit leery about her cousin, Roland DuPree, eighteen, coming to live with her and her parents in Harbor Heights, Michigan, with his dark clothing and odd behavior. But since he is family, she has to tolerate him and even accept the fact that her best friend, Mandi, is attracted to her cousin.

Roland DuPree wasn’t exactly thrilled to be leaving Owl's Bluff, Oregon to spend his senior year at Transylvanica High. But he understood why he had been forced to relocate. Unbeknownst to Lydia, Roland is a teen vampire who had literally bitten off more than he could chew in Owl's Bluff.

Now he is trying to fit in with Lydia and her friends in a new community. But following the rules had never been his strong suit, especially with a craving for fresh rather than powdered human blood, and a potentially ripe for the biting target in his cousin’s attractive friend, Mandi.

Included with this entertaining paranormal short are excerpts from the first book in the Transylvanica High Series, Count Dracula’s Teenage Daughter; as well as excerpts from the author’s young adult haunted house mystery, Teen Ghost at Dead Lake, and teen time travel mystery, Danger in Time.

These and other titles from R. Barri Flowers are available in eBook, print, and audio.

Teen Haunted House Mysteries Bundle contains two complete YA
ghost mystery novels by bestselling author R. Barri Flowers, including Ghost
Girl in Shadow Bay and Teen Ghost at Dead Lake.


Girl in Shadow Bay


Three years after her father was
killed, sixteen-year-old Peyton Delaney, her mother, Melody, and new
stepfather, Vance McIntyre, relocate to Shadow Bay, Minnesota and move into an
old Victorian. They are unaware of the house's dark history--fifty years ago, a
jealous husband snapped, murdering his wife, her lover, and sixteen-year-old daughter
before killing himself.


But when Peyton begins to have
nightmares about the crime and is haunted by a ghostly teenage girl named
Caitlyn, she begins to investigate with the help of the caretaker's cute son,
Bryant. As the two delve into the supernatural mystery surrounding the house,
they discover that the events that led to the tragedy of fifty years ago are
somehow intertwined with the present. In other words, history is repeating
itself and Peyton, Bryant, and their parents are being drawn into a disturbing
case of jealousy, possession, revenge, and murder, while seemingly powerless to
prevent the inevitable from taking place all over again.


Caitlyn is a ghost who has had to
relive the nightmare of being murdered by her father for half a century. When
Peyton and her family arrive at the house where Caitlyn’s spirit has remained
trapped, she feels a connection to Peyton and knows instinctively that it will
take the two of them to not only free Caitlyn at long last, but to prevent her
tragedy from becoming one that Peyton too must endure.


Teen Ghost at Dead


When sixteen-year-old Paige Preston and her mother relocated
to Dead Lake, Michigan, they were unaware that a seventeen-year-old previous
resident of their house had killed himself by jumping off a cliff into the lake
six months earlier. But was it really suicide?


Noah Snyder is a ghost. At least he thinks so. Only he's not
sure how he died. He recruits the attractive Paige to help him get to the
bottom of the mystery so he can move on. Before he died, Noah was the captain
of the boys swim team and popular at Dead Lake High School. He had also
suffered from depression after losing his father when Noah was just a boy.


Paige, who had initially believed she was dealing with an
imposter Noah, is stunned to find out that he is a real ghost and that there
were more than a few people who may have wanted him dead. Being attracted to a
cute teen ghost is no small feat as Paige tries to adjust to life in a new town
and help unravel the mystery of his death. In the process, she soon finds
herself in danger, as someone wants to keep a deadly secret at all costs.
