    “Jaz Parks here.

    My latest mission has taken me to the ancient Greek city of Patras; but instead of soaking up it’s splendor, I’m here to infiltrate a Vampire Trust.

    Only two vamps have ever escaped the tightly bound communities and lived to tell the tale: Edward “The Raptor” Samos, the most reviled criminal mastermind in recent memory, and Vayl, the CIA’s number one assassin, who also happens to be my boss.

    The Raptor is trying to take over Vayl’s former Trust. Unfortunately, the Trust’s new leader has her own plans.

    This job is going to be the death of me.”

    This is the fourth book of the series in which Jaz Parks and her boss Vayl, the CIA’s top assassin duo, come up against some serious supernatural bad-asses. This highly entertaining team of CIA operatives goes in kicking butt and takes you on a supernatural roller-coaster of high flying danger, excitement, anticipation and hair-raising events!

    As usual, I couldn’t put the book down and I can’t wait for the next book, One More Bite, coming out on January 5th, 2009

    I really enjoyed the trip into some of Vayl’s past and just the character development in general. The plot, as always, is fast paced, scary and exhilarating. I absolutely love Ms. Rardin’s writing style, and her characterization of Jaz makes me laugh out loud. She’s just a total blast to read about. This is definitely one of my top picks of a series I would LOVE to see made into movies or TV series. ( Are you listening out there you TV and Movie execs? )

    News Around The UF/PR Community


    Jennifer Rardin’s fourth book in the Jaz Parks series, BITTEN TO DEATH was released yesterday ( August 12th ). If you’ve had your head in the sand and somehow haven’t managed to come across this series, I highly recommend them. Here’s a blurb from this book… ( From The Publisher)

    “Jaz Parks here. My latest mission has taken me to the ancient Greek city of Patras; but instead of soaking up its splendor, I’m here to infiltrate a Vampere Trust. Only two vamps have ever escaped the tightly bound communities and lived to tell the tale: Edward “The Raptor” Samos, the most reviled criminal mastermind in recent memory, and Vayl, the CIA’s number one assassin who also happens to be my boss.

    The Raptor is trying to take over Vayl’s former Trust. Unfortunately the Trust’s new leader has her own plans.

    This job is going to be the death of me.”

    These books can be read as stand alone and you will have no problems following the story, but It’s also much more gratifying if you read from the first book because you’re that much more invested in the characters. That’s just my opinion though.

    Here’s the awesome cover of Adrian Phoenix’s second book IN THE BLOOD, which is being released December 30th, 2008 according to Amazon and Chapters. Put it in your wishlist’s or pre-order it, I have!

    I’m really looking forward to this book as it continues the story of Heather and Dante as well as all the great characters from the first book A RUSH OF WINGS. I’m not sure if the series has a name yet, but it is a series. I just heard recently that Adrian has been contracted to write books 3 and 4. A Huge big congrats to you Adrian!! I can’t wait to read them. 🙂
