"Who needs Anne Rice when you have Jaye Roycraft"
After warning him about his unorthodox behavior on cases,
Nikolena assigns Alex "Drago" Dargovich the Enforcer with
eliminating a threat to their vampire race. Drago is to
determine whether half-breed Dhampir Marya Jaks, daughter
of a vampire hunter, lives or dies. Marya being a Dhampir
has the innate ability to locate bloodsuckers and if she
could become a slayer of the undead, Drago must eliminate
her. After meeting her, Drago grants her life.
Drago returns to Paris, but is shocked when Marya leaves a
message on his voice mail that she will kill him.
Apparently another vampire has persuaded Marya that Drago
changed his mind about her. No longer willing to wait for
Drago to carry out his revised sentencing, Marya plans to
take action. However, Drago never changed his decision.
Someone wants one of them permanently dead and if this duo
fails to communicate that assailant will succeed.
Who needs Anne Rice when you have AFTERIMAGE, the
second novel in Jaye Roycraft's vampire tales (see DOUBLE
IMAGE) is an exciting supernatural romance that provides a
refreshing look at the undead. The story line is loaded

this novel and look joyfully forward to more fables set in
the Roycraft universe. This is one novel that is perfect in
every way, something few books are.
