"Vampires, Immortals, Bacchae—they’re all the same. The name may change, but their appetites never do."
Ever since archaeology student Serafina Finch found an ancient Roman amulet on a dig in Italy, she's been having dreams. Strange dreams that leave her with an eerie sense of foreboding. But between a busy college schedule and a boyfriend she's hoping to marry, she doesn't have time for strange.
Then a mysterious cult takes an obsessive interest in the artifact. Serafina finds her life in chaos as she's thrown into the supernatural world, where Immortals and witches alike claim ownership of the amulet. Her amulet.
As her connection to the amulet grows, she discovers a dark secret about her past. Serafina realizes she must protect the powerful relic at all costs—even if it means losing one of the people she loves most.
“Invisible. Powerful. Immortal. We are Bacchae.”
BIRTH OF THE BACCHAE is the first book in the Immortal Relics series, a New Adult Paranormal Fantasy series exploring the origins of vampire lore in a modern setting.
"I was surprised by how I got "sucked" into this book (pun intended)! I have to be honest, this is not a genre I usually read but, once I started, I couldn't put it down. I reached a part in the book when I had to know what happened - even if it meant staying up late and reading into the morning. I was very satisfied with the result of book one and can't wait to "sink my teeth" into book two!! Great read and well worth your time." - Linda K.
"The plot was original, the characters great, the setting was vivid. I basically read it all in one sitting. I have not been sucked into a book like that in a long while. I can't wait for book 2!" - Martin W.
