On this Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d profess our great love for vampires 🙂 With Ever Dark, Raythe has expanded her vampire worlds. Those who have been reading the blog for a while will know that Raythe never gets tired of vampires… and neither do readers, if Amazon’s top sellers are to be believed.
Raythe is a prime example of writing what she most wants to read. She combines the best of both worlds in her M/M vampire stories – you can get the vampire tropes, and the M/M romance.
In The Abyss, the Kin are a space-faring race of vampires with an alliance with Earth. Lonely vampire leader Lord Abaddon falls in love with human soldier Anarion, who comes to serve on The Abyss, the Kin’s flagship.
This immense serial spanning more than one hundred chapters was the first of Raythe’s vampire stories.
And then, Sanctuary came on the scene. With more “traditional” vampires and set in modern day, Sanctuary has many more of the familiar vampire tropes.
The main couple of human Alex and vampire Demetrius was romantic and sexy, but The Nomad stole the show. Raythe had to make a continuation of this universe in The Ghost Half.
Related to Sanctuary is the original manga Date A Vampire.Com, a collaboration between Mathia and Raythe that is a runaway hit, even for those Members who don’t usually like manga.
In this sweet story, old-fashioned Milo starts dating vampire Lucien over video through a vampire dating site, only Milo doesn’t believe that vampires are real…
And the latest is Ever Dark, with a darker, more atmospheric tone. This story is just getting started, but Raythe has been giving it 3 chapter per month to feed the Members’ hunger for more!
