Lily is a tragic and lonely vampire, unwittingly brought into her existence by Ian, a selfish but beautiful maker who has captured her heart for decades, even though he left her with no compass on how to navigate her strange new world. When she meets a coven of vampires that takes her in and treats her like family, all she thought she knew is brought into question. Things are further complicated when she finally finds love – Christian, a human man. Just when she's finally found happiness, Ian reappears, threatening to destroy everything Lily holds dear. When he once again removes all her choices, Lily is thrown into a world where Ian's ongoing sins are unstoppable and her family and newfound love seem lost forever.


"Lily is an exciting vampire adventure that will make you fall in love with paranormal genre all over again. It shows the powerful bond between the maker and the newborn. The forbidden love makes you hope that they can overcome their obstacles. The family unity in the coven is overpowering. I enjoyed watching Lily grow and become more confident in herself. I completely enjoyed this story." —Page Turners

"LM DeWalt has crafted a wonderfully rich tableaux in the journey of Lily which is really quite stunning. Her settings were vivid, the conversations convincing and real and the love story at the core of Lily is bewitching which will have you on your feet cheering for this wonderful soul." —Dean Mayes, author, The Hambledown Dream

"Lily brings the suspense like a thriller, but it is also a sweet story about finding true love and finally finding a family to call your own. It's about the bonds of trust and loyalty, and moving beyond the things that hurt us deeply and embracing our future." —Kyra Dawson, The Scribe's Desk 

"LM Dewalt pulled out a couple great little horrid vampire moments. I would love to have read one of these as it happened and 'felt' the fear that came with it." —Novels on the Run
