A different kind of vampire book by Iuliana Foos
We all have a certain image in our minds when it comes to vampires. I guess being born and raised in Romania had been a decisive factor in creating my own.
Vampires had been illustrated from merciless, bloodthirsty monsters to cursed and twisted souls, to sexy lovers turning into bats. I honestly disagreed with all of the above.
Visiting Dracula’s Castle in my early teens, opened my eyes to different possibilities. Walking the dark and dingy corridors, the stone rooms with small openings for windows and the spiraled, tight stairs helped me envision them. It was then when I decided they must look and act a lot like us, humans.
Around the age of sixteen, when most girls become experts in fashion and makeup, I dove into the possibility of extra-terrestrial life. For me, there is no question about it. Life exists beyond our world, most probably different from what we might know and accept.
It was just a matter of time to put vampires and aliens in the same sentence. Two of my favorite fiction beings, besides dragons and elves, had to be somehow linked.
What if vampires had been brought to Earth by aliens? The question first sparked in my mind before I even finished high school. It took me thirty years to answer it.
The ‘Bloodline’ trilogy is a vampire’s lineage saga.
In the first book, Bloodline Origins, I focused on the present time, with incursions in the distant past, the beginning of their existence. As a perfect mix of aliens and humans, my vampires have special abilities and characteristics specific to both species.
Ana, the main character, takes the journey to self-discovery and complete transformation. Passion, heartache, doubt, and determination are mixing into a love story that will mark just the beginning.
The second book, Bloodline Destinies, takes us five hundred years into the future. After a devastating flood caused by the crash of an alien ship in one of our oceans, civilization is forever changed. A new subspecies of blood drinkers, GEMs (genetically modified individuals) appears and counts for a quarter of the existing population.
Theodor, a cold and dark vampire nicknamed Theofrost, learns the power of destiny. Faced with a choice between love and ambition, with lives on the line, his choice could cost him everything.
The third and last book in the series, Bloodline Revelations, to be released in August 2019, wraps up the series. A year after Theodor’s adventures, his sister Theodora, is in the spotlight. The aliens who first created the vampires are back on Earth, threatening our civilization.
She will have to choose between the man she loves, and the existence of the human race.
