“I should have let them stick that hot poker in both of your eyes while they ripped your insolent tongue from your ungrateful mouth. Then I could have thoroughly enjoyed them flaying you open while you were still alive to experience the torture. I never should have brought you over, but I did so out of compassion for you, and you show your gratitude by disrespecting everything I have ever given you. You have destroyed my trust.”
Braedon Carlisle to Desmond Blood Betrayal - P. A. Matthews
Myth To Life - The Rise of Riley McCabe: Blood Betrayal
Riley McCabe vanished without a trace . . . or so Braedon Carlisle, master vampire, is led to believe. In a pact to save Braedon and his bloodline, Riley agrees to enslavement by the Host’s maniacal leader Doran for one year. With the caveats she sever ties with Braedon and the House of Carlisle without a reason, and agreeing not to use her psychic or Seelie powers, Riley is taken to a hidden corner of the evil Unseelie kingdom very few escape.
Sworn to secrecy by Riley, only two people know of this pact to ensure their safety and protect Braedon as well—Quinlan, Braedon’s human servant and wereleopard Andrew, Braedon’s main blood donor and Riley’s friend.
In this Carlisle Chronicle, enemies assault from every side, including those from Braedon’s monster-filled past. As Braedon mourns losing Riley, his life becomes erratic, and the ensuing power struggle between his human and vampire identities leaves lingering doubt which side will win.
Can anyone survive the consuming betrayal inside the House of Carlisle . . . including its master?
