Celebrate: Bloodwalker Print Giveaway & More Giveaways!

BLOODWALKER doesn't release until October 4th, but you can have your very own print copy for free!  Just enter the Goodreads Giveaway to win!



Lightning flashes. Another child disappears…

When Zorka Circus performs, its big top roars with laughter and cheers, but when it moves on, there are fewer children in the European towns it leaves behind.

Circus Security Chief Rurik suspects a killer is hiding among the international performers, but they close ranks—they’ve always viewed lightning-scarred Rurik as the monster. Nevertheless, he's determined to find the culprit and stop them before anyone else dies and the only place he can call home is ripped apart by the murders.

Into Zorka Circus comes the Skomori clan, despised as gravediggers and ghoulish bloodwalkers. A one-day truce allows bloodwalker Sylvie to marry. Instead, she finds a body. Alerting others will defy her clan’s strict rules, break the truce, and leave her an outcast.

When more bodies turn up, the killer's trail becomes impossible to ignore. Rurik and Sylvie must follow the clues—even if they lead to something unimaginable...


Bloodwalker is a thrilling mystery that spills across three Eastern European countries as the characters race to find and catch a killer.

"Clowns are enigmatic. Everyone is scared of them and fascinated at the same time. Our laughter is really sublimated fear. In Bloodwalker there is good reason to be wary of such a circus entertainer. Children go missing whenever the circus passes through. With page-turning narrative an innocent Rurik, twice scarred, once by the ‘kiss of lightning’ needs to unearth the guilty to prove his innocence. This fluent thriller is a must for aficionados of the Big Tent noir subgenre. Where entertainment is dangerous."  ~ Geoff Nelder, award-winning author of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Thriller novels.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Lexa, Congrats on the release of Bloodwalker! This is an excellent reason to celebrate. If you want, I can put up a promo on my blog. Just send me the info and I'll work it in early next week or at least I will try. I'm taking a blog break starting tomorrow. So, I don't have plans to do any new posts until July 1st at the earliest. Oh yeah, I have one more reason to celebrate this week, our 37th wedding anniversary was yesterday. :D Can you believe that? I can't! lol Have a good weekend, my friend!

Sue Bursztynski said...

Ah, a thriller rather than a horror story! Sounds good. What IS a bloodwalker, though? Is that a paranormal element? I guess we will find out soon enough.

messymimi said...

What an amazing story you've woven! Congratulations!

Denise Covey said...

Hi Lexa! Always a good idea to say an offer is not available internationally as we go through all the ticks and flicks only to be told at the end that your country is not allowed! Grr...I want to read your book so now I'll wait till it is released! I'm glad you went with that cover. Awesome!

Denise :-)
