Scions: Insurrection by Patrice MichellePatrice Michelle is at it again, this time with Scions: Insurrection, the sequel to her fast-paced thrillfest Scions: Resurrection.

Just like its predecessor, Scions: Insurrection is a swift and engaging read with compelling characters and a hot romance. And though Insurrection is actually a werewolf story, vamps do make an appearance and I expect them to play a larger role as the Scions series progresses and the mysterious prophecy at the story’s core comes more into the light.

Scions: Insurrection tells the story of the private detective and lone were Landon Rourke, who we me in Resurrection, and police detective Kaitlyn McKinney, who unexpectedly find themselves pairing up professionally in a case with mysterious, paranormal qualities. The close quarters spark some serious heat between the couple, of course, but as events from the past come to light, they must soon decide if the painful truths will unite them or tear them apart.

Ladies and gents, our featured author for the month of January in this brand new year of 2008 is none other than Patrice Michelle, author of Silhouette Nocturne’s new Scions series.

Ms. Michelle, whose first book in the Scions series — Scions: Resurrection — has just been released, has kindly answered a series of questions for us here at VRB.com and we’re pleased to share her answers with you.

Now without further ado, an interview with Patrice Michelle.

Enjoy!

Scions: Resurrection by Patrice MichelleScions: Resurrection (Jan. 1, 2008) by Patrice Michelle is an adrenaline rush of the first order with top-notch action sequences propelling the story from start to finish. Romance is involved, too, of course, as our hero and heroine ride a collision course toward destiny, with both personal and larger implications, in this first part of the Scions series from Silhouette Nocturne.

The story picks up with Jachin Black, a vampire who has been banished from his vampire clan and is just trying to survive in a world where human blood is poison to his kind. To make a living, and buy purified blood, Jachin serves as a hitman, taking out humans with decidedly questionable morals and ethics. His rage against humankind is personal, however, allowing him to do his “job” without much remorse.

Jachin believes in a prophecy, one that predicts peace and prosperity for his hunted — and believed extinct — race. He has been waiting, watching, biding his time, hoping to help with the time comes. His patience pays off when he learns that an author, Ariel Swanson, has penned a book detailing that EXACT prophecy. How could a human know such things!?

Seizing the chance to help his people, Jachin kidnaps the feisty Ariel and sets out to take her to the leader of his clan, hoping to bring the prophecy to fruition. Things, however, aren’t that simple. Other factions with their own agendas are after her, too, while his own people want him dead, making his simple mission a fight for survival, danger awaiting them at every turn even as their growing fondness and attraction to each other threatens to sweep them away with passion.

I do believe Scions: Resurrection takes place at some point in the future — I’m not sure exactly how far, but some of the weapons of choice are decidedly different from contemporary arms — and I’ll admit that this appealed to the sci-fi fan in me … a lot. More appealing, though, is Michelle’s vampire mythology, which I found to be unique and intriguing but won’t detail here because I think you’ll appreciate it more when you read it for yourself.
