Michelle DePaepe has just released her first young adult paranormal romance, Vampire Music. I was lucky enough to beta read this novel, and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Here is the synopsis:
Kristal falls in love with Saxon the first day she lays eyes on him, but someone or something is torturing him, and she fears for his life. When Saxon’s uncle from Romania sends him an electric guitar for his sixteenth birthday, there’s no doubt that he has a beautiful voice to go along with his musical talent, and their relationship is going well until Valentine’s night when he disappears. Dealing with the stress of his disappearance and her parents’ divorce, her own demons begin to drive her into the dangerous arms of anorexia. Three years later, Saxon returns, but he has changed. He’s a successful musician in a band called Dragos; he also wants nothing to do with her. Kristal is heartbroken, but even though her body is weakened, her will is not. She vows to find out the mystery behind Saxon’s changed behavior. Even learning about his dark side is no deterrent to her quest to be with him. On the night of what may be his final concert, they face the greatest challenge to their love…and their continued existence. Neither one is prepared for the showdown with the queen of the Dark Ones.
