Hi all, I'm
Ladybug Lin and I'm back again with another SPICY HOT Pick of the Week from the
SMOKING side of the Muse Catalog of Reads...and today I have the debut of a new vampire series (drum roll please) Kat Holmes'
Hekate's Web Series.
Everybody KNOWS vampires are the stud muffins of today's GOTTA have dreamboats...and none know that better than one of the Greek Goddesses from way back when...
Good Old Hekate. Does anyone know what Hekate is the goddess of?
Yeah I know, those buggers are into lots of things, so keeping track is a pain in my
ambrosia. Okay I admit it. I had to actually look it up...cause unlike Aphrodite, the goddess of the love thing, or Artemis, the queen of bows and arrows, Hekate isn't as well known...not that she isn't well known to that Muse It Up Greek Pantheon genius
Kat Holmes, but I'm not Kat...so off I went to look it up.
Hekate is the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, and...
OHHHH...that makes sense...doesn't it? Vampires rule the night so who better to have created and then control vampires than the goddess of the night. See how brilliant Kat is?
Anyway, Hidden is the debut of her Hekate's Web Series and will introduce you all to a female vamp unlike any female vamp you've ever come across ANYWHERE...in fact she's unlike any female vamp VAMPS have ever come across...which is going to make things really uncomfortable in a whole LOT of ways for the good vamps and the not so good vamps.
Hidden...the title tells you a lot. Lilith is technically a baby vamp. For the past 30 years she's been...well...HIDDEN while she cooks...under the watchful eye whether he wants to watch her or not, of a water demon Royce. Royce is caught
in the goddess's web....we don't know why, not yet, anyway...just that he hates vamps, but he's in Hekate's debt, so watching over Lilith while she...cooks...is part of how he's paying his debt off to the all powerful goddess.
Lilith is going to set the vamp world on it's fangs, and several other organs.
This is one hot, hot chick, and she's only going to get hotter. Question is, who can match her sizzle for fanging sizzle?
She felt so cold. She didn’t understand it and she couldn’t seem to make her mind work. Where was she? What happened? Why was she so damned cold? Slowly opening her eyes, fear coursed through her. Sweet Hekate, I’m buried alive! Panic gripped her. Then she remembered and dread took over. That man, that vampire, he killed me! But, why am I awake in my grave? Oh shit! No, don’t tell me he turned me, made me a filthy parasite? Please Hekate, no! She closed her eyes, made herself stop and take stock of the situation. She noted she didn’t have a heartbeat, her skin was cold and clammy, and she didn’t need to breathe. Yep, he’d definitely made her one of the undead. She didn’t want to be undead. Okay, think back to the old folklore about vampires. You don’t have to be one forever. You have a couple of options open to you.
She could get herself staked, she could meet the sun, or she could be set on fire and burned to a crisp. She could ask a priest to dump holy water on her. That was supposed to work, too. And silver would work. Wait, no it wouldn’t. Silver would hurt like hell and immobilize her, but according to the stories silver didn’t kill vampires. Neither would garlic or crosses, they’d only repel and burn her a bit.
Also, she’d no longer have a reflection and would forever be frozen at the age she was when he turned her, never to change in appearance. Damn it, this sucks! In more ways than one! Opening her eyes again, Lilith could no longer bear the close confines of her grave. She began to claw at the dirt above her head. She kept clawing and clawing until at last she saw a glimmer of light and pulled herself up through it. She was ravenously thirsty. She felt almost mindless with hunger. Crying out in pain, she pulled herself free from the grave at last.
Till next week, this is Ladybug Lin reminding you, you're not complete until you've become part of the Muse Family of Reading Bugs.
