Flickering Light (A Vampires: TNA Drabble)

by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Nate’s torch was in a hundred pieces and so a candle he had found was his only available light. When it went out with a small puff of smoke, he glared at the slightly glowing wick in betrayal.

Luckily his reflexes kicked in. Dropping the useless wax, he fell down onto one knee and brought his sword around in a swift arc. Spawn really were predictable and there was a satisfying scream as blade met flesh. Pulling a flare from his belt, he lit it and ran; he wasn’t stupid enough to stick around to see if it was dead.

Vampires: The New Age

Vampires: The New Age is a collection of books which detail what happens when the line between hunters and vampires becomes more than a little blurred and old legends and relics are needed again in the modern world.

When you’re a vampire hunter infected with vampirism your life expectancy is short. Nate’s a hunter and Lexie’s a witch and they have less than six months before Lexie’s magic can no longer delay the symptoms and keep them at least partially human.
