"I can smell explosives and fire. I am covered in blood, and I’d love to say it’s mostly the blood of my enemies, but actually I think it’s half-and-half at best."

Anushka "Noosh" Rossetti is an overqualified and bored small-town librarian until the day a dark, handsome, and mysterious stranger shows up at the children’s reading hour. She is amazed that he shows an interest in her, but quickly falls for the man who introduces himself as Alexandru Solin. After he disappears out of her life she thinks she is doomed to return to monotony—until suddenly he returns, announces that he is a vampire, and says he needs her: he will explain all if she just goes back to his place with him. By choosing to go with him, Noosh makes the first of serious of dubious choices, although they seem right (or at least fun!) along the way. A weekend of amazing vampiric sex and equally amazing revelations about the world of the am’r (as the vampires call themselves) ends in Noosh "going for" an irreversible decision: to share blood with Alexandru ("Sandu") a third time, tying herself to him.

Sandu yanks Noosh out of her boring old world—and indeed, out of the human world entirely, as he takes her (literally) underground to a meeting of am’r—there is a huge crisis in the am’r world and Sandu says Noosh’s skills as archivist and information scientist make her valuable to them. Noosh begins to explore her vibrant and intense new reality, but just as she discovers that Sandu has not told her the whole truth, she is kidnapped by Mehmet, Sandu’s rival and oldest enemy. Mehmet turns out to be terrifyingly insane and yet a powerful leader of a new movement—and Mehmet wants Noosh for his own purposes. Noosh finds herself changing as she is forced to keep up with the spiraling consequences of her choices: she must confront the violence and inhumanity of the world she has chosen, learning the rules of a whole new kind of life quickly enough to survive without her lover or friends. Just when Noosh thinks she has lost everything, she gets the opportunity to finally get personal revenge and to help Sandu achieve victory over his oldest foe. Amid the explosions, fire, and bloodshed, Noosh finally starts to find a place for her new self in the world of the am’r, in a life she never expected but in which she can truly thrive.

Raven’s Notes:

One of the sex scenes in this book I dreamed one night, with a lot of the backstory just appearing in my head like I’d always known it. When I woke up in the morning, I rushed to write it all down. When I finished, I thought, I want to keep going with this; I want to know what happens to this character. I’d written lots of short stories, but never actually completed a novel. So I pressed on, and it took a long time, but finally I had finished my first novel. But during the writing of the novel, it became very clear that it was going to have to be a trilogy, that Noosh’s story couldn’t be told in just one book.

I started writing this book just for me. And it was a great escape and distraction during some very hard periods of my life. Now I realize how much I want it to be a satisfying escape for everyone else. I hope that people are distracted from their own hard times when they pick it up. I hope they love the journey in reading it as much as I have in writing it.
