New Release: Datura by LM DeWalt

This month, we’re very pleased to present the second in The Quest For Reason series – Datura by LM DeWalt. This book follows Lily as she tries to cope with the drama of finding a new family and love only to have it all taken from her by the one she had loved for so many years. While Lily is a vampire, what makes this book so real is that she has all the feelings and emotions that we all share – the desire for happiness and fulfillment but an overwhelming feeling of being totally undeserving. She’s as real as anyone we know. All the characters that DeWalt paints are as real as she is and it is fascinating to watch them all interact in a supernatural way in this very successful series. Both Lily & Datura have been released in English and Spanish. You can also find the English versions in both print and digital editions wherever you like to buy books.

Datura

After nearly a century of wandering the globe alone, Lily finally has everything she never knew she wanted, family, friends, and most of all, their love. As Lily attempts to start her new life, in the lively streets of Lima, Peru, she feels she is constantly being followed. With Ian, her first love and maker, now gone, who is left to destroy the happiness she has finally found? Someone still longs for Lily’s destruction. Vengeance or jealousy threaten to destroy her, and Lily must summon all the strength she can find to protect everything she cherishes against vampires, hunters, and witches.

New Release: Lily by LM DeWalt

As we grow, we are proud to release books that are welcomed by readers. In the case of Lily, we are re-releasing a novel which has had a great response from the young adult community. Originally released in 2010, Lily has undergone some changes, sporting a new cover and is now available in print. This is all done in anticipation of the release of Datura, the next in the series. Lily is a lonely vampire, unwillingly brought into her existence by a selfish maker. Unaware and uneducated, she meanders through life, lonely and yearning for someone to love. The beauty of this story is that it mirrors what we all go through, the search for friends, the desire for acceptance by our peers. Lily’s story is our own and it is what has made this book a success.

Lily is a tragic and lonely vampire, unwittingly brought into her existence by Ian, a selfish but beautiful maker who has captured her heart for decades, even though he left her with no compass on how to navigate her strange new world. When she meets a coven of vampires that takes her in and treats her like family, all she thought she knew is brought into question. Things are further complicated when she finally finds love – Christian, a human man. Just when she’s finally found happiness, Ian reappears, threatening to destroy everything Lily holds dear. When he once again removes all her choices, Lily is thrown into a world where Ian’s ongoing sins are unstoppable and her family and newfound love seem lost forever.
