Rogue became a vampire after the loss of her human family. While she had been addicted to the tales when alive, she never imagined any of it to be true. She is an impulsive quirky kind of girl, she smokes, drives a bike, collapses when least expected, loves cerise pink and tries to study some forms of martial arts. Her adventures make her tour the globe in a frantic search for eternal love.Whilst the main characters are mainly vampires, the story has an exciting range of characters with extravagant abilities ranging from something in between X-men; Transformers and Twilight. The reader will be transported to a time and place where they will be caught up with exciting stories of fast cars and fast bikes.
Excerpt from My Addiction, Book One:
PrologueIt was a misty morning as I perched myself on the edge of the old age home’s roof. I didn’t look a day older than 29 in physical resemblance even though in years I had been fortunate enough to reach the age of a 105.Sitting on top of an old age home is what I had recently made my newfound addiction. It was this thing I did to fill up the empty space inside, the empty hole that most people tried to fill with “business”. Everyone had a different reaction when dealing with pain. Some would work hard, other would go on a vacation, and some go for haircuts and tattoos. I was a vampire. Not exactly the type of thing that could mingle with general society.
