The Stregoni Sequence
Vampires. Memory Charmers. Wicked Sorcereresses. Genies.
The Stregoni Sequence is a Christian fantasy trilogy that takes classic fantasy beings, mixes them up with some original ones, and places a new spin on them–including telling the tale of the very first vampire. In each of the three books, one or more characters is under a spell which must be broken, adding a bit of a dark fairy tale feel. While the books are connected, each can stand alone as its own tale.

What it’s about: He leaned his head close to my ear and whispered, “Are you afraid?” Emma had had more reason than any other time of her life, even when facing one of the rampages of her drunken father. But she wasn’t afraid. And that was odd, because although Aaryn, the person asking her that question, was her best friend, he was also a vampire. In fact, she was surrounded by hundreds of vampires. But they weren’t your typical vampires. They were Stregoni Benefici, the good kind. Nor was Emma your typical fairy. She was the Golden Healer, and she alone could save the Stregoni Benefici from the Dark Enchantress. But can Emma figure out the Dark Enchantress’ secret and defeat the evil vampires without destroying the good ones as well, without destroying Aaryn?
