His life is not his own again - The Devil's Liege by Danielle DeVor

"Absolutely loved it! [...] I enjoyed the suspense and mystery that was woven into the plot. The story was fast-paced and easy to read. The different twists that the book takes keeps you wondering what would happen next. The ending threw an interesting loop and left me highly anticipating the next installment." - Goodreads


Being a vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be- in fact, it kind of sucks.

After surviving his duel with Lilith, Mathias thought that he could relax. That is until he discovers that, Nossy, the new king, has been kidnapped.

When the investigating vampires seem to have no clue how to rescue Nosferatu, Mathias must step in. Everything is peachy until Mathias is named the next new king in order to stop the man behind Nossy’s kidnapping from taking over the throne.

Suddenly, his life is not his own again, and Mathias must make a choice: risk his life to find his friend, or sit back and watch disaster unfold.

My Vampires
 by Danielle DeVor
If you’ve read Tail of the Devil and/or the sequel, The Devil’s Liege, then you are pretty aware that I have used some characters from pop culture and turned them upside down. Here’s a breakdown of the main characters listed in alphabetical order.

Azazel- Mysterious figure introduced in The Devil’s Liege. May or may not be trustworthy. Looks like a vampire and acts like one, but there is more to him than Mathias knows.

Lestan- Lilith’s on again off again consort. He refused to help Mathias when Lilith caused Mathias’ death the first time.

Lilith- Now former queen of the vampire world. Created by God to be the wife for Mathias, but was stolen from Mathias by Adam. Was a conscientious ruler until she went mad and tried to torture Mathias to death. Now deceased.

Mathias- Both vampiric teenager and past-life famous ruler of the vampires. Known for his impressive bloodshed on the battlefield. Now, known for aiding in the death of Lilith.

Nosferatu (Nossy)- Son of Lilith. Was born of her after she mated with a bat in bat form. Nossy is self-conscious of his appearance. Killed his mother when she tried to kill Mathias a second time.

Stuart- Half-brother of Nossy. Friend to Mathias. Watched Mathias die a horrific death when he was a mere six-years-old

Tallus- Former speaker for the Order of the Dragon (The governing body for the world of vampires. Comparable to what Parliament is to the Queen of England.) Now deceased.

Vlad- Otherwise known as Dracula. Friend to Mathias and the one who saved Mathias’ life in this current incarnation. Is also the head of the school for vampires called The University-- which is the cover for the location of the Order of the Dragon.

Xiao- Chinese snow demon who was brought into the sight of the vampires when Tallus asked her for a favor. She has a huge crush on Mathias even though she is centuries older than he in this lifetime.

About the author:
Danielle DeVor spent her early years fantasizing about vampires and watching “Salem’s Lot” way too many times. After living briefly in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she moved back to her hometown to write. When not writing and reading about weird things, you will find her hanging out at the nearest coffee shop, enjoying a mocha frappuccino.

Danielle has been on a writing roll this year! With the release of Tail of the Devil, Constructing Marcus and Sorrow’s Point she already has three books out.
