Kelley Landry and his brothers spent their childhood hunting the elusive vampire. Many hours they toiled in their covert clubhouse, coming of age under the veil of this unusual belief.

Now adults and in college, Kieran and Dillon Landry have moved past childhood whims, pursuing their futures. But Kelley can’t shake his call to the supernatural quite so easily. He spends his days working for his aunt in her pub, and his evenings still secretly investigating blood drinkers.

Kelley begins to wonder if it’s time to move on from his quest.
Then Queen Edith shows up, with revelations that send his entire world—and his beliefs—into an exciting whirlwind.

***#NerdGirlJulie’s  Review***
Sarah Cradit’s Dark Blessings is a “lagniappe”. It is a vignette that introduces us to more characters that will add to the complexity of her House of Crimson and Clover series. Dark Blessings does not advance the overall plot of the series, and because there currently is no tie in to the main story line, it can be read as a stand alone short story.

Kelley, Kieran, and Dillon are triplets, and they are related to the Sullivan clan through their mother. As young boys, they were fascinated by vampires. As they grow up, only Kelley remains enthralled with vampires. When he is sought out by Queen Edith, he takes advantage of her knowledge in order to meet Vincenc, one of the oldest vampires around.

Vincenc and Kelley make a deal that I am sure will somehow impact the House of Crimson and Clover series later on. We will all have to keep reading this involved series to find out how it all evolves!
