Zander Varga Vampire Detective Series

Zander has relived his wife’s death at the hands of vampires every day for almost three hundred years, his perfect memory a curse of becoming one of The Turned—infecting him their final heinous act after her murder.

Nineteen year-old Sydney Winter knows Zander’s secret, a secret preserved by the women in her family for four generations. But with her mother in a coma, she’s thrust into the front lines, ahead of her time, to fight side-by-side with Zander.

Follow their adventures in the new series, Zander Varga Vampire Detective.

“This is really a great take on vampirism, and is also a most unusual love story that spans hundreds of years. I was drawn into the world of this detective vampire and enjoyed every minute of it. It’s got some interesting, and I mean really interesting descriptions of the possible origins of vampires, that caused me to both smile and be at the same time a little frightened when I considered the implications of what Kennedy wrote.”
