As the descendant of a centuries-old cult, Mina Coffin was never promised an ordinary life. The only things that keep her alive are drinking from open veins and keeping secrets. But truths drip from her lips like blood, and trust is a dangerous thing. Will falling in love with a man with killer instincts, being hunted by an ex-girlfriend with fangs, and a perilous accident collapse the peaceful life she built after years of turmoil? It will take a fight with her inner demons and the sacrifice of the ones who love her most to learn how strong she really is. Mina’s journey is long and gory, but it’s worth it. Even if she needs a few daggers and a lot of blood to find out.
Praise for Bloodborn
“Elegant writing, excellent characters, and creative laws of the faith and necessity of the scriptures will keep your teeth sunk into Bloodborn from start to finish.” – Gillian Dowell, author of Paracosm, Found By Forbiddance, and Hello, Dove.
“Vampire lovers, rejoice! Kemler has woven a delightfully dark tale that will make vampire lovers nostalgic for the stories which made them love the undead in the first place.” – Stephanie Escobar, author of A Song Beyond Walls
“I tend not to be surprised by books very often, but Bloodborn is a rare and bloody little gem that floored me completely.” – Christopher Stanfield, author of The Girl in the Storm, The Woman in Darkness, and Elegy
“A unique contemporary vampire book with the essence of the classics and filled with originality and realism.” – Sabrina Voerman, author of Red and AEsa.
“Whether readers are fans of vampires, romance, or the gothic; Kemler’s story weaves a refreshing new take on these qualities and depicts the sentiments of a bleeding heart.” – David Grinnell, author of Ashes
“In her debut novel, Kemler shows off her world-building by immersing readers into a religion that feels like a damned branch of Christianity. I would recommend this book to any reader, particularly those who love gothic literature, romance, and paranormal thrillers.” – Grace R. Reynolds, author of Lady of the House
