The Search by Kelley Grealis - Blog Tour & Giveaway!!



 The Search (Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series)

Allison Carmichael is thirsty for blood and hungry for answers. 


Lured away from her illicit extracurricular activities by news about her kidnapped husband, Allison rejoins her adopted family that’s promised to help her find him. Allison's search is detoured, however, by sinister vampire politics, the seeming good will of her fanged family, and the return of her nemesis. Circumstances unfold that shatter the foundation of her world. 
In order to successfully play the game she has been thrust into, Allison must battle loss and betrayal and accept unexpected love. 

THE SEARCH is on for answers, but when answers are found, will they be what Allison was looking for?

We reached the apartment and I punched the security code into the keypad as I steadied Joe with my left arm. The lock clicked and I pushed the door open. We entered the dark apartment, the only illumination coming from the cityscape visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Which city, I hadn’t a clue. I’d traveled to so many cities over the past several months that they all looked the same. This was just another metropolis with an overabundance of skyscrapers, congested freeways and plenty of places like the lounge to inconspicuously pick up an easy meal, like Joe. 
“Where’s the light?” Joe groped the wall in search of a switch. 
“We don’t need light.” I grabbed Joe by the shirt and pushed him against the wall. I pressed my body against his as I kicked the door closed with my other foot. 
“I like it. A woman who takes control and knows what she wants.” 
“I know what I want, alright.” 
Joe panted with anticipation. I could feel his heart beating beneath his shirt, now damp with perspiration. I yanked at his collar, exposing his neck. Though the room was dark, my eyes could see the vein thumping under his skin with every beat of his heart. I licked his neck and the saltiness was enough to make the venom angrier. It swirled more powerfully in my stomach and steamrolled through my veins. Desire was flush throughout my body; I yearned for nourishment. My legs tingled with anticipation. I opened my mouth and felt my fangs emerge; a drop of venom numbed my tongue for a second. I threw my head back, ready to strike when the light flicked on. 
“What in the hell?” I shouted at Joe, assuming he had found the light switch. 
It took his mortal eyes a few seconds to adjust to the surroundings, which was enough time for my fangs to retract without him noticing. Joe rubbed his eyes with both hands and I realized he couldn’t have turned on the light; the switch was out of reach. I turned around. 
“Hello, Allison,” a female voice greeted from across the room. 
“Marlo?” I was shocked by the unexpected appearance of the woman I had once, not too long ago, considered like a sister. 
I was given this ebook free for an honest review.
I absolutely LOVE to read Kelley's work!  It's so well written and presented!  I love the way she weaves the story!  As you are reading the words really just jump right out at you and entwine you into the lives of the characters!
The Search is the second book in the Descendants Series, and it picks up immediately after the first book leaves off.  We find Allison is searching for her husband, and learning more about Vampirism.
I really love Kelley's take on Vampirism and her twists involving the biblical background, and we see much more of both in this installment.
Don't worry, you'll see more of Vincent as well!
I would give this more than 5 stars if I could! You simply MUST read it!!

You can find book one in the series for sale as well.
