Daily Kindle Bargains - Almost Human - The First Trilogy by Melanie Nowak


ALMOST HUMAN ~ The First Trilogy ~ 3-in-1 Edition

In this paranormal fantasy, chapters alternate perspective between a vampire and a young woman, as they join an ensemble cast of characters to navigate difficulties of addiction and desire; perils of zombies and vampires; and struggles with abuse, morality and... college.

Vol. 1: Fatal Infatuation 

Felicity views going away to college as an opportunity to mature into a confident young woman, but her new beginning turns out to be more of an adventure than she bargains for when she finds that her school is plagued by vampires!

Cain is an elder vampire who displays quiet confidence even as he struggles to overcome sins of his past. Surprisingly, he found that in losing his life he gained his faith and a purpose. 

His mission: find the hostile vampires that inhabit this small college town, and educate them to live in peace with humans. Their leader, Sindy, is a wicked temptress who has set her sights on Felicity's new friend Ben. She will be difficult to control, but after meeting Felicity, Cain's most difficult task lies in controlling himself.

Vol. 2: Lost Reflections

Felicity has helped her friends to escape the venomous vixen Sindy, but cannot divine the motives of Cain, the vampire who captured first her gratitude, and then her heart.

She finds the historical account of Cain’s past enthralling and frightening. Now she must determine whether the addictive venom in Cain’s kiss is clouding her judgment, and if his thirst for her blood is a driving force too strong for their love to conquer. 

It’s difficult to contemplate such questions while under the attack of a vengeful vampire and his zombie slaves. Felicity’s heart has already been lost to Cain; will she lose her life as well?

Vol. 3: Evolving Ecstasy

The relationship between Cain and Felicity has crested to a peak that leaves them unsure whether to step back from each other for safety, or jump into a future united in death. 

The venom of Cain’s bite could protect Felicity from hostile vampires, but it would give him a measure of psychic control over her as well. Would Felicity only accept becoming a vampire, due to his addictive venom, coupled with the foolishness of a young girl in love? 

Perhaps there is a brighter future for her in the human world. Is Cain’s desire for Felicity’s love worth the loss of her life?

From the Reviewers:

“The characters and story are well thought out, with an insight that captures your attention and keeps it. All the relationships continue evolving, making for addictive reading. It had me going on a rollercoaster ride of who I wanted with who, and a surprise ending I did not expect. I love how this author throws you curve balls that completely leave you hooked and wanting more. Nowak wraps readers into her story to live it with the characters, with attention to detail, development and discovery. Every time I didn’t think the ALMOST HUMAN series could get even better, with each book it has! Ms. Nowak has a vision all her own, that is fun and enjoyable, and is on my 'to look for' list!”

“ALMOST HUMAN is definitely a keeper for anyone looking to get swept into a great fantasy 
paranormal romantic series. The author takes you on an emotional rollercoaster that will have you sitting in suspense one moment, laughing out loud the next, and then crying your eyes out at yet other times. It is definitely a book series that should be read slowly and savored. By the time you have reached the end, you will be craving a continuation. Thank goodness the author is hard at work on completing the sequels for this 12 book series! This series is a Night Owl Top Pick!”

About the Author:

Melanie Nowak has always had a vivid imagination and a fascination for the paranormal. Acting and singing in theatrical productions throughout college and in church had always been a passion.

Upon completion of the first trilogy for Almost Human, the author made the decision to publish her books independently, thus maintaining complete creative control of her vision for the series. She has founded WoodWitchDame Publications, published her first four novels, and plans to release many more for this exciting series!
