it’s time to listen to your fears.

We have come together as one,

Humans, vampires, & human vampires.

The last battle on this earthly planet

That will determine our combined fate.

Linda clings to her friends.

Will she choose wisely and correctly?

Will she choose me over The Dead?



5.0 out of 5 stars A true ‘thrilogy!

Gentlemen, are you ready?”

The very statement gives you a chill that races up your spine-The Dead at Heart captures you and launches the reader into the next adventure in the Dead Game ‘thrilogy!’ The new installment focuses on the relationship of Shana and William and the turmoil they face as they they work through their challenges.

Susanne Leist keeps the final book just as clever with her amazing talent for creating a world beyond our own. The tale remains true to the Goth style vampire setting adding twists in the story line to keep you turning the page. Love the setting of the book from the stoic mansions of Florida to the battles between vampires and werewolves. Leist’s series is a thrilling read, and highly recommend.
