Teaser: Lucy Albert is not your ordinary maladjusted suburban adolescent. Born in the time of the Black Plague in medieval Italy, Lucy is chosen as a mate by the vampire Sebastianus against her will. Struggling to survive in a world she cannot identify with, Lucy isn't looking for attention, especially not from hormonally anxious high school boys. But even a vampire can't help feeling tempted sometimes. Enter John Diedermayer, an overachieving seventeen year old boy with a future as bright as his academic record. How can she run away from what seems so normal, so natural?
Welcome to Forever Fifteen, a vampire story that imagines it as it truly could be. Lucy does not wear dark sunglasses or a trench coat. She is not cool. She is not a modern emancipated woman, but instead a person who feels like the leftovers from another age, just trying to get by.

After losing his wife and daughter, a failed Templar rejoins his comrades in the crusade against the Yew's army. But the dice are cast against the living, and the Black Yew's demons slay him, impressing his reanimated corpse into their ranks. He is gifted. He shows great promise as a servant to the Yew. But life is not yet done with him.
