She attends Transylvanica High School–one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist.

Kula has no problem with the human-vampire bonding because she has always believed in equality among the living and the living dead. But she is caught completely off guard upon learning that she is the half human daughter of Count Dracula, leader of the oldest and most powerful vampire clan.

She soon discovers that there are some sworn to protect her and others out to get her.

Someone is killing vampires and Kula fears she may be on the hit list. Staying alive becomes a priority as she adjusts to her birthright.

From R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of the young adult vampire novel, COUNT DRACULA’S TEENAGE DAUGHTER, comes the exciting book two in the Transylvanica High series, OUT FOR BLOOD.

Sixteen-year-old honor student Kula Lockhart is in her second year at Transylvanica High School in Harbor Heights, Michigan. It is one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist.

Kula recently learned that she is the half human, half vampire daughter of Count Dracula. This has made her a target for those who hate her powerful Dad and vamps in general.

As she comes to terms with her heritage and newfound abilities, things begin to heat up between Kula and her mortal boyfriend, Eriq Pratt. She also has her vamp guardians Ivan and Amelia, as well as several human and vampire friends, to balance her evolving life and times.

When Kula suddenly finds herself being pursued by a new handsome half vamp at school, Sebastian LeBlanc, she is strangely drawn to him, even if her heart belongs to Eriq. Yet Kula can’t help but wonder if it is more than coincidence that Sebastian just happened to arrive in town at around the same time that a vampire or vampires began killing humans. Could Sebastian be behind these vicious attacks?

Another new vampire, Gabryela Roswell, befriends Kula, but has a hidden agenda.

In the meantime, Kula has competition from an attractive human girl, Yvonne Elwood, who has her eye on Eriq. She also has to deal with the gorgeous and mean-spirited cheerleader vamp, Jacquelyn Brossard, a member of the rival Doerzic clan.

As Kula grapples with these issues and the changes in her life, she tries to learn more about her mother, who died in childbirth, from the only person who can give her answers–her dad, Count Dracula.

Fans of popular teen vampire and paranormal fiction series such as Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, and Vampire Academy will love OUT FOR BLOOD in this captivating series.

OUT FOR BLOOD (Transylvanica High Series #2)

PROLOGUE

 The guardians, Ivan and Amelia, stood side by side on Lookout Hill enjoying the landscape below. The waning days of summer would soon give way to autumn. They took it all in for a moment before turning their focus to Kula, the half human daughter of Count Dracula, of whom they were assigned the task of keeping out of harm’s way. It was not easy, but it had to be done.

“She’s gotten so much stronger, so much more confident in the past ten months,” Amelia said.

“I know,” Ivan responded. “Wish we could take credit for it, but the truth is it was her destiny all along. We just helped guide her in the right direction.”

“True, but she still faces many more challenges,” noted Amelia. “The United Front Against Vampires will never stop going after her and the rest of us.”

“Let them try,” Ivan said. “We’ll do whatever is necessary to protect our species—and, of course, Kula.”

“That should definitely keep us on our toes.”

He smiled at her. “Maybe not always.”

She smiled back. “Perhaps not.”

They both concentrated till their eyes reddened and fangs sprouted from their mouths. In an instant, they had turned into vampire bats, flapping their wings to stay afloat.

Leaving behind Lookout Hill, they flew over the valley, taking advantage of the freedom they were afforded as creatures of the day and night, before returning to earth and resuming their lives among the living.

* * *

Neither was aware of another vampire bat that had carefully remained hidden behind some bushes, watching and waiting for the creatures to reappear in human form and walk away.

Only when they were at a safe distance did the bat come out of hiding, flapping its wings effortlessly before rematerializing as a vampire. Fresh blood dripped from its fangs and its eyes burned red with a yearning for more. It took a deep breath and managed to hold the temptation in check for now. Violating the sacred oath against the new norms of society that outlawed taking what was needed from mortals was a dangerous path to go down. But some things couldn’t be helped.

Yet the vampire was able to resist any such urges as its bloodsucker attributes began to change and the appearance of a human took shape. Even then, it still took a moment or two longer for the vampire to regain the equilibrium necessary to function as normal as possible. It would stay that way only until the overpowering urge to act upon one’s natural instincts as a vampire once again took over.
