Texas Two-step


Bassist and all-round slacker Xan Marcelles spends his nights at a remote tavern in Pinecliffe, Colorado. But there’s something else, he’s also a vampire, and although he reckons he has a handle on this secret, he’s not prepared for the day when people he thinks are the FBI drug him and haul him away. Ashton Kennedy isn’t human anymore and, as a member of a race of beings known simply as Inkarna, exists through the aeons by stealing bodies. At first his mission seems simple enough: break into the stronghold of a rival Inkarna House and liberate an artifact. He doesn’t bank on discovering a vampire, bound and tucked away neatly in a sarcophagus. The two unlikely allies are thrown together in a house of mysteries, and have to battle overwhelming odds against an implacable enemy. The question is, can they overcome their differences long enough to make it out alive, or undead?

Carrie Clevenger and Nerine Dorman team up once again, this time on a paranormal roadshow. What I love about collaboration between these two, is how different their voices are. Clevenger writes Xan Marcelles as a wise cracking asshole with a penchant for whisky. Dorman's Ashton is proper and polite, and swears with a bit of colloquialism attached. Throw these two together and it's one wild ride.

Add one Egyptian artifact, some cultist behavior and a ton of semi automatic weapons, what have you got.. A shit ton of fun that's what...

I'm not usually a fan of dual authors but these two have found a real balance, and the result is made of awesome..

You can purchase this ebook here for the price of a Bud Light..Yep for reals..
