Release Event & Giveaway!! VAMPIRE ELITE By Irina Argo


Title: Vampire Elite
Author: Irina Argo
Event organized by:

Book Description:
Can the ultimate choice be made if saving your race means destroying the one you love?
At the beginning of the twenty-first century of our era a millennia long war between two immortal races was coming to an end. The Vampire Elite, the strongest among vampires, forced the race of immortal beings, the Amiti to become their blood suppliers, called bloodstock, locking them in their underground cells and treating them like livestock. The surviving free Amiti make a final attempt to strike back. The Queen of Amiti is proclaimed a traitor and is executed. Her death signifies the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna who becomes the last hope of her dying race. Arianna totally embraces her mission and is ready to fight for her people to the last drop of her blood but encounters an unexpected challenge—the vampire King Tor. They both are captured into a trap of love where they had to make an ultimate choice; to kill the loved one or to let their races die.
Vampire Elite is the epic story of a bitter conflict between two peoples, and the effect of that conflict on everyone living in its grip. The characters are driven to love and betrayal, vengeance and sacrifice in a world without easy black-and-white answers.
Based on an ancient Egyptian legend, packed with action and intrigue, Vampire Elite will pull you into the entrancing world of immortals and open new portals into their hidden universe.

Book Excerpt: 
 “I can’t do that, Anock.”
“Oh, but you can. You don’t want this female to die, do you?”
“No, I don’t, and I appeal to your mercy, Anock. You can spare her life; it’s your choice as much as it is mine. More than mine. I will not give the Keepers up. There’s nothing that you can do that will change my mind.”
“Yes, Oberon, you will. At the count of three. One.”
“I am so very sorry.” Oberon glanced at the woman. She held her head down, but her shaking shoulders betrayed that she was crying. “There is nothing I can do for you. The Keepers are the only Amiti’s hope, I cannot give them up.”
Please Goddess, kill me. Spare me from having to make this choice.

Two!” Anock was bluffing. He had no intention of letting the woman die. It was a test of wills.
“Please, Anock. You’re a warrior, not a butcher. How can you reduce yourself to this level? Torture me, kill me, do whatever you want, but please, don’t waste her life.”
Anock looked one last time at the Amiti.
This is so wrong.
Three!
Blade’s sword hissed through the air, slicing through the female’s neck. Her head hit the floor and rolled toward the cage, lifeless jade-green eyes staring into Anock’s soul. It took a few seconds for the body to collapse to the floor.
The hysterical screams of the other Amiti filled the room.
Anock stared, transfixed, at the lifeless eyes.
Cara’s eyes. Oh Goddess.
“Take the bloodstock to her cell and clean the place up,” he ordered, his voice and brain totally disconnected, and left.
