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.
