This books is the first in a series, a teen paranormal fantasy that offers a satisfying read for older and younger alike.
They don't call him Jackpot for nothing.
Jack was barely seventeen when a werewolf slaughtered his parents and ripped his throat out. Lucky for him, there were vampires nearby. Summer liked him on sight, so she infected him and gave him new life as a vampire. His only remaining family, a younger brother, buried him and tried to move on. Jack couldn't. His body and heart remained frozen in time, and that's why he does it, why he takes a trip home every year. Feeling nostalgic, he walks through the house and touches his former possessions. Then he visits the cemetery and stares down at an empty grave with his name on it. This has been Jack's life for ten years... but this year something incredible happens.
Jack is at the cemetery when he sees a beautiful girl about to get killed by a werewolf. Misunderstanding the situation, he jumps in to save her and is wounded. He watches in awe as she kills the werewolf with a gentle touch. This is Silver, THE werewolf hunter, and she didn't need his help but still appreciates it. Unfortunately for Jack, a single scratch from a werewolf can kill a vampire. As far as he knows, only a few have survived it.
And that is why Jack is stunned to wake up the next morning. The second thing to shock him is the realization that his fangs are gone. Sunlight touches his face for the first time in a decade. He has a second chance to live. This is a miracle.
Not so fast, Jack. He tries to return to his old life, but the people around him won't let him pretend to be normal when the supernatural is everywhere. His brother is a hunter, the English teacher is a werewolf, and his new girlfriend can suck the souls of werewolves right out of them. Scary, huh? If he was still a vampire, he might be worried.
His brother Billy is now older than him and wants to tell him what to do. This does not sit well with Jack. His vampire friends refuse to leave town without him. They want to turn him into a vampire again. Not going to happen. Not if Jack has any say in the matter. Being a vampire sucked. Sorry. No other word for it.
Every time he starts to feel normal, something happens. An innocent boy is infected by a werewolf. He finds out an unbelievable secret about his parents, and Silver insists it is his destiny to wipe out werewolf kind. She has this weird diary that was written thousands of years ago, and it clearly states a vampire will turn mortal. That has to be Jack, right? Then this former vampire is supposed to develop incredible powers so he can kill the head werewolf. Jack just wants to make it to graduation in one piece.
Silver has a magical stone in her possession. It can kill the head werewolf with a single touch. Problem is, Jack has another werewolf in mind to use it against. He's found the werewolf responsible for killing his parents. The stone can only be used once. Silver pushes him to use it on the head werewolf, but Jack kind of likes the guy. She insists the diary is true (it's filled with prophecies) and the head werewolf is about to build an army that will eventually destroy the world.
What will Jack do? Will he use the stone for revenge? Or will he choose to save the world from the possibility of war with werewolves?
Vampires Rule is an action-packed teen paranormal fantasy with wraiths, vampires, and a faerie. This is the first book in the series. Werewolves Rule is book two, and Shifters Rule is book three. They are both available. Wizards Rule and Mortals Rule are not yet out, but will be in the near future. (As I am writing this it is 2014)
