Vampire Elite

Part 1. Prophecy

Part 2. Keepers of the Key

What will he do if saving his people means destroying the woman he loves?

A millennia-long war between two immortal races is about to come to an end. Long ago, the Vampire Elite began capturing the immortals called the Amiti, attracted by their unique blood properties. Now most Amiti live in underground cells, forced to serve as vampires’ bloodstock. The few surviving free Amiti, preparing a final strike, have declared their Queen a traitor. Her execution makes possible the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna, who will inherit her mother's mystical powers. Working with the Keepers of the Key, Arianna may be able to eliminate the vampires, once and for all, from the face of the earth.

The new Queen is the last hope to save her dying race

and she's ready to fight to the last drop of her blood.

 But the King of the Vampires has other plans.

 What neither expects 

is the passion that erupts between them.


Vampire Elite is an epic story of a bitter conflict between two immortal races, and the effect of that conflict on everyone living in its grip. The characters are driven to love and betrayal, vengeance and sacrifice in a world without easy black-and-white answers.

            Based on an ancient Egyptian legend, packed with action and intrigue, Vampire Elite will pull you into the entrancing world of immortals and open new portals into their hidden universe.

The Story Told by Irina Vampire Elite began unfolding in my brain two years ago. I finally put it on paper. It just came to me at a time when I felt really challenged. My husband had a stroke and I was doing everything to help him to deal with his depression and the loss of his mobility. At the same time I was preparing for my licensing exam in clinical psychology and was working full time as a psychologist with people with mental illnesses and drag and alcohol addiction problems. The pressure was intense. That must have been the catalyst for my mind to begin taking me into an alternate reality filled with unique and powerful people. These people were also going through challenges. Their challenges were much greater than mine so my own felt like a piece of cake compared to theirs. The story was unfolding as a sequence. It was a movie playing in my brain. It was happening when I was driving, sitting in meetings (extremely boring) or doing housework, which I do automatically. I was also dreaming about it and making notes in the morning. The characters were coming to life, events were happening with lightning speed. It seemed as though I was living in two parallel worlds. In this world I was Irina with all my responsibilities; in the other world, I was four people simultaneously: Simone, Arianna, Theores and Anock. It was beyond thrilling. I’ve always been intensely interested in other people’s inner worlds. That is why I chose psychology as my profession. But one thing is listening to the people’s stories and being empathic during the therapy sessions and completely another experience is to actually live a life of your characters, even in your imagination. One day the story abruptly stopped and it did not matter how hard I tried to push it forward it just would not happen. It had a life of its own. Then there was a constant nagging thought in my brain that I had to breath life into this story by writing a book. I was insecure about my proficiency in English and that caused my on-going resistance to even think about it. But the annoying thought about not writing was becoming unbearable. It was eating me alive. So I sat down in front of my laptop and began typing. In a few days the first few chapters of Vampire Elite were born.
