The Rest Falls Away, the first book in Colleen Gleason’s Gardella Vampire Chronicles came out in January 2007. It received generally favorable reviews and more than a few “Buffy of the Regency era” comparisons. As later books in the series arrived, the buzz surrounding it has grown. Now, in March, we will see the release of As Shadows Fade, the final book of The Gardella Vampire Chronicles and a new release that many readers have been anticipating.
Signet Eclipse describes the book as follows:
Directly descended from the very first vampire hunter in the Gardella family, Victoria knows she must continue the lineage so humanity will have protectors against the undead.
While Sebastian Vioget appears to be both the perfect warrior and lover to ensure the Gardella Legacy, Victoria cannot forget Max Pesaro—the former slayer still haunted by the vampire queen Lilith’s obsession with him
