Series: An Order of the Spirit Realm Novel
Author: K.C. Blake
Synopsis. There are monsters in the closet.
Children everywhere refuse to go to sleep until their rooms are checked. Parents roll their eyes. Most closets are empty. At sixteen, Bay-Lee is in for a surprise. She has a late night visitor. A reaper gives her a grim warning. It kills you on your birthday.
Now, with a mystery to solve and a mentor who hates the sight of her, she is invited into Van Helsing’s school for hunters. Her plan for vengeance is set into motion. Step one: train hard to become a great hunter. Step two: kill the werewolf pack that murdered her mom. Step three: buy a boat and sail around the world for the rest of her life because there are no monsters at sea.
The only thing that can destroy her plan at this point is falling in love. No problem. Bay-Lee has her mind firmly focused on revenge. Then she meets unbelievably hot Nick Gallos, a tormented hunter with a dark past and a bleak future. She’ll have to make a choice. She can either have love or revenge. Will she make the right choice?
Interview with Bay-Lee
Q: Tell us about yourself. What makes you newsworthy?
A: The only reason people want to know about me is because I’m a Van Helsing. They think I’m going to do something spectacular with my life. It’s a lot of pressure.
Q: Who is your best friend?
A: I don’t have one. My uncle and I have been running since my mom died. I get a new name every time we move. Now it’s finally stopped. I’m Bay-Lee Bishop, Van Helsing’s daughter, and I’m going to his school for hunters. Maybe my roommate Tessa will become my best friend even though she talks a mile a minute and is hard to understand. Or maybe Keisha will be it even though she kicked me in the face at our first meeting.
Q: What are your plans? Are you going to do something great?
A: The only plan I have at the moment is to track and kill the werewolf pack responsible for my mother’s death. I can’t think about anything else. They deserve to die.
Q: What do you see as your biggest obstacle in achieving this goal?
A: Jungle green eyes.
Q: Excuse me?
A: Nick Gallos is a major obstacle. A week ago I didn’t even know he existed, and now he’s everywhere. Falling in love with him would ruin everything. How can I be hard and focused and in love?
Q: What frightens you the most?
A: Yesterday I would have said werewolves, but now there’s something killing hunters on their birthdays. My father is even freaking out because he has no clue what’s behind it. None of us do. My birthday is coming up fast, but Nick’s is even sooner. If we don’t catch the thing or kill it, he’s going to die.
