Blood Awakening (The Fallen Kingdom, Book 1)
In a world beneath our own, creatures of horror thrive in the darkness. A vampire dynasty flourishes in the subterranean kingdom of Herset, where humans are kept as livestock, fountains flow with the blood of enemies, and an undying Pharaoh rules ruthlessly.
Creed is a darkling: a half human, half vampire. Born in the human Farms of Mevka, that is a past he'd rather not remember and he's determined to leave it behind him elevated to a higher status than any darkling before him. He's gained the trust of the Pharaoh himself and privileged to guard the royal family, his newest charge is the Pharaoh's rebellious and spoiled daughter, Princess Iset.
Princess Iset has come upon her Blood Awakening, the time female vampires begin feeding on blood for the first time and must choose a mate, and the Pharaoh has already chosen a suitor, a wealthy vampire lord, Dagan, who farms humans, but Iset has her fangs set on her darkling guardian and cannot resist her dangerous desires.
Leanna is a human concubine to the Pharaoh, a fate she has long come to accept, until a window of opportunity presents itself in the form of the Pharaoh's own son.
