How does a wife and mother deal with raising her own unstable child, as well as an orphaned fairy, while at the same time hiding her special power of knowing the future? Elsie is doing the best she can; although keeping a foot in both worlds is precarious at best. Moving from place to place in order to keep the humans from finding out is hard on her, as is having to deal with the children not aging, while time moves on for her and her man. The forest is the safest place for the family, though they cannot remain there for long.

The Hemlock Forest is the prequel to "Run, Run, Run Away - The Ivy Chronicles 1". It tells the story from Elsie's point of view, living in the human world, though shifted into a fey by the unwitting willow. No one knows, not even her husband, that she is now a Scry and she needs to keep it that way.

by Dicey Grenor
4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Vampire Horror

Ever since vampirism became illegal, the undead have been hunted to near-extinction. So Willow has to watch her back to make sure no one finds out what she is. And that’s not easy considering she’s a vampire with narcolepsy. Predator can become prey at any moment, especially with the skillful Vampire Extermination Team (VET) on the job.

Hoping to blend in with the nightlife, Willow takes advantage of being an animated corpse by performing for necrophiliacs at premiere fetish club Hades. Here, she discovers colleagues with other supernatural secrets. She’s also unexpectedly drawn to Remi, her most loyal fan, despite his deviant sexual nature and personality disorder. But succumbing to her lust is not a good idea since her maistre vampire forbids it.

Now Willow has to outsmart VET agents, escape bounty hunters, and find a cure for narcolepsy…or vampirism. And she’s got to break the bond with her maistre, no matter how powerful and unrelenting he is.

Most importantly, can she stay awake long enough to do any of it?
