The writing strength alone gives me ample reassurance that this potentially plot-heavy series is in the right hands. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment." —Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

The final entry in award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason's International Bestselling Gardella Vampire Hunter Series. "Vampires have met their match with Victoria Gardella,"* but now the huntress faces an even greater evil as London is besieged by malevolent entities no mortal was ever meant to encounter... Directly descended from the very first vampire hunter in the Gardella family, Victoria knows she must continue the lineage so humanity will have protectors against the undead. While Sebastian Vioget appears to both the perfect warrior and lover to ensure the Gardella Legacy, Victoria cannot forget Max Pesaro--the former slayer still haunted by the vampire queen Lilith's obsession with him. But it is Lilith's obsession that may save all of humanity. Demons, enemies of both mortals and the undead, have found their way to earth. To defeat them, vampires and slayers must fight side by side. But Lilith wants Max in return for her cooperation--a small price for the world, but too high a price for Victoria. "Addictively readable." --The Chicago Tribune *Kady Cross, bestselling author of The Girl in the Steel Corset

Learn what it means to start in medias res.Weak Construction-It sneaks in at the level of words and sentences, and rears up in up in the form of passive voice, ing verbs, and misplaced modifiers.Too Much Backstory-the bane of many manuscripts. Backstory has its place, but too often it serves as an info dump and bogs down pacing.POV Violations-Head hopping, characters knowing things they can't know, and foreshadowing are just some of the many POV violations explored.Telling instead of Showing-Writers have heard this admonition, but there's a lot to understanding how and when to show instead of tell.Lack of Pacing and Tension-Many factors affect pacing and tension: clunky passages, mundane dialogue, unimportant information, and so much more.Flawed Dialogue Construction-Writers need to learn to balance speech and narrative tags and avoid "on the nose" speech."Underwriting"-just as fatal as overwriting.

Don't be left in the dark. Learn what causes these flaws and apply the fixes in your own stories. No one need suffer novel failure. You don't have to be brilliant or talented to write strong fiction. You just need to be forewarned and forearmed to be able to tackle these culprits. And this book will give you all the weapons and knowledge you need.
