The Fall of Darkness – A Vampire Urban Fantasy Novel

The Fall of Darkness is the third in the edge-of-your-seat vampire urban fantasy series Bad Blood. In this gritty third part, Alexa becomes vampires’ only hope to preserve their way of life, a burden too heavy for an already broken girl. The Fall of Darkness continues the story of The Edge of Hope and The Breaking of Bonds, so I recommend reading the books in order to get the best possible experience.

Coming July 2018.

The most dangerous trials always hit when you’re at your weakest.

Every time Alexa puts herself back together, something worse hits her and sends her back to the bottom of the abyss. As she struggles to make sense of the pieces of her shattered life, a new threat emerges.

Vampires, baseborn and trueborn alike, suddenly find themselves in mortal danger, a state they are poorly equipped to handle. Everyone turns to Alexa for a solution, but what can one broken girl achieve when she’s faced with a power so great, it sends fear down her spine?

With no time to recover from her turmoil and the fates of two worlds weighing her down, Alexa needs to find strength where none remains. If she fails, darkness falls.

The Fall of Darkness concludes the thrilling vampire saga Bad Blood. If you like urban fantasy adventures, compelling characters, and high-stakes adventures, then you will love the explosive finale of Alina Popescu’s vampire series.

The Fall of Darkness – An Excerpt

It was too early for the club, so I went to the High Council’s Mansion; maybe they wanted a report or something. Or better yet, maybe Hesrah was on Earth. I could have used some girl time right about then. The traffic was murder, so it took a while to get there.

I ran into Anhubis in the mansion’s parking lot. He came over to greet me and kiss me on the cheek. As we both love Hesrah, shared a love for irony and sarcasm and often acted like smartasses had slowly lead us to discovering we did in fact like each other a lot and we had become good friends over the past months. Silver lining, I thought, and smiled to myself.

“Thought you were drowning your sorrows in junk food and crappy movies,” he said, giving me his best smirk.

“Surprisingly, junk food is not as soothing for vampires, although it still tastes great. Plus, they haven’t released that many crappy movies in the past year or so.”

“You got bored, didn’t you?”

‘Spot on.” I said and hugged him. “You get me, I am so grateful for that.”

“So what now?” he asked, crossing his hands over his broad chest.

“I’m exorcising demons. I’ve made up my mind!” I nodded once, and raised my chin up, planting my feet and leaning forward.

“Demons? As in plural? That’s interesting.”

“How so?”

Anhubis tilted his head and rubbed his chin. “Hmm, let’s just say I’d like to know who else besides Louis you are trying to cast away.”

I paused for a second trying to gather my thoughts. Why did I use the plural?

“Ha, so there are more demons,” he said laughing. And then it hit me the one thing that gave me away was not the plural, but the fact that I didn’t have a dismissive, quick enough reaction. Stunned by such a simple remark, I was clearly off my game.

“Umm, no. I just didn’t know how to answer that. I mean… saying I’m going to exorcise a demon seems a lot less dramatic.” I shrugged, but couldn’t bring myself to meet his eyes.

“Oh, give it up, Alexa. Don’t be a sore loser, So, Anthony?”

I just shook my head and said nothing. Letting him believe whatever he wanted was far better than giving more away. “Is Hesrah here?” Yes, distract him, that was my best play.
