Birthdays and Books - Meridian Six.

It's my Birthday today! I'm *cough* 21 and a bit, again *cough*, and as usual I'm treating myself to some books (Best Presents EVAH! :-D)

First up is this awesome novella - Meridian Six - published today by the awesome Jaye Wells, in honour of my birthday*!! (Read on for a giveaway!)

Woot!! Happy Book Birthday, Jaye! 

So here's the skinny . . .

Meridian Six remembers the days before the Troika enslaved humans. She also remembers her mother, a freedom fighter who was murdered in the final battle between humans and vampires. But it is her mother's final words that have haunted her: 

Never stop fighting, Carmina. Red means life.

In the years since her mother's death, Meridian Six has been used as both a propaganda tool and a blood slave by the Troika. She's withstood their indignities because they were better than breaking her back in a labor camp or bleeding our in a blood camp. But when the abuses finally go too far, she decides to run towards freedom and her mother's red light. 

On the other side of the light, she finds the Sisters of Crimson. They help her like her mother promised, but they also hand her to the human rebels, who have their own plans for the daughter of the race's famous freedom fighter. The vampires used her famous name to keep human slaves biddable, but now the humans want to use it inspire a revolution. 

Meridian Six is about to learn that when the world is at war, freedom is a luxury paid for with blood.

Sounds THRILLING, right? And it is! Everyone's gonna want to read this one! :-D

Happy birthday - and what a wonderful day to celebrate in London. Sun is shining and most people seem to be in good moods! :-)

Books are the best presents - but I'm sure we're supposed to be giving you one rather than the other way around! Still I'm not complaining as I adored the Sabina Kane series and really want to read Meridian Six! ;-)
