Pytes live in a world where their immortality, strength, speed and ability to withstand the sun should make them gods on earth. Instead they are forced to live in fear. Their ability to create a stronger more powerful army of vampires has Master Vampires all over the world waging wars to find them and Sentinels determined to get them.
Even as they fight for their freedom they know that one day they’ll have to choose a side….
Thousands of years ago a war was started on earth between God and Lucifer after Lucifer left the confines of Hell to steal much needed human souls.
Out of anger, God punished Lucifer, sealing him in Hell and away from his children. God decreed that as long as there was even one human soul left on earth, Lucifer could not leave Hell. Knowing that he couldn’t outright destroy God’s precious children without feeling God’s wrath, Lucifer did the only thing he was allowed, he released one Vladerc demon on earth.
He used God’s rules against him not caring that once the demon was released he could not release another. It didn’t matter. He’d chosen well. The Vladerc demon not only fed on humans stealing their souls, but the demon could also turn humans into hybrid Vladercs who would steal more human souls until only his demons inhabited the earth freeing him. Free Will stopped God from interfering on Earth leaving Lucifer’s demon to spread his disease.
Or so he thought….
Using the rules to his advantage God sent five of his elite Angel warriors to earth every ten years. To keep them from becoming too powerful or easily detected by Lucifer’s children he split their souls in half and merged each half with a human soul. He named them Sentinels for they protected his greatest treasure, his children. He blessed them with longevity, strength, speed and the only thing he could think of to thank them for their sacrifice as well as keep them loyal to him….
A soul mate.
Every neighborhood, whether it’s located in the best part of town or across the tracks has one very important thing in common: they all have the one neighbor that you wish you could club upside the head, throw in the back of your trunk, and dump a hundred miles into the woods all while giggling hysterically and promising yourself that this time would be different, this time he wouldn’t find his way back.You know who I’m talking about.
It’s the person that steals your newspaper, lets his dog walk on your freshly mowed lawn, blasts their music at all hours of the night, steals your parking spot, leaves their alarm clock blasting twenty-four seven and just annoys the living hell out of you. What if I told you that this person really wasn’t so bad once you got to know him and that by the time I’m done spinning you a tale that not only will you find all of his quirks endearing, but that you’ll fall head over heels in love with him? What would you say then?
Don’t believe me? Well, I guess there’s only one way to find out. Check out my Neighbor From Hell series and see for yourself
