In this debut novella, J.H. White crafts a gritty new imagining of the modern vampire trope. Each chapter of this contemporary and paranormal fantasy uncoils and delivers as it artfully interlaces two distinct story arcs. Blending urban fantasy with just the right amount of horror and dark elements, this first installment in the Tiber Series grabs the reader and won't relent. If you are expecting the typical vampire cliche, you will be painfully disappointed – or pleasantly surprised. Azygos is a delightfully excruciating journey which will leave you aching for answers.
"Two different paths for two very different people, battling nightmares of things in the past that cannot change. It is when these two paths cross that things become different. They wish for things that will never be. This book is a horror story, with romance different from any other. The book takes off out of the gates from the very beginning. Within the first few chapters we are introduced to our main characters and their unique disposition. Both are in a situation beyond their control or choice. You will experience horror, yet also romance. An odd combination that blends so flawlessly. Don’t expect any happily-ever-afters in this creepy tale. But hard decisions will be made and it will be a shocker."
