Trade Paperback

The USA Today bestselling first volume in the Thrall series, for the first time in trade paperback

The alien vampires known as the Thrall classify most humans as Prey, save for a few who survive the bite of the parasite. People like Kate Reilly, whose latent psychic powers were activated by the vampire's venom when she was attacked a few years ago. Kate is Not Prey, and safe.

Or is she? The Thrall Queen intends to make Kate her successor, despite Kate's hatred of the vampires.

All is not bleak in Kate's world. Her downstairs neighbor, Tom, is a hunky firefighter who arouses her senses…including the ones that tell her he's not human. Tom's a werewolf—and his pack knows how to protect Kate from the Thrall Queen. The problem? The last time Kate trusted a man she loved, he betrayed her to the Thrall and nearly got her killed.

Action, adventure, romance, and thrills—everything readers want from the USA Today bestselling authors who are also Cat Adams, creator of the Blood Singer series—are all on display in Touch of Evil.


Praise for Touch of Evil

“Riveting plot twists…[the authors] don't stint on the romance that builds between the sexy Tom and the Laura Croft-like Kate, making this an outstanding paranormal romance.” —Booklist, starred review

“The brilliant team of Adams and Clamp craft an exceedingly intriguing heroine trying to survive a dangerous and complex world. Kate's struggles and choices are both vivid and terrifying. An unbeatably good paranormal!” —RT Book Reviews

Touch of Evil receives The Road to Romance Reviewer's Choice Award. This book has it all and more. Readers don't want to miss this perfect example of fantastically vivid paranormal fiction.” —The Road to Romance

“The turbo-charged plot has healthy doses of sex, action, drama and pathos--all with that near-palpable touch of realism. Bone-chilling, nerve-wracking suspense…spectacular finish.” —Curled Up With a Good Book

“I was thrilled to find a new twist on the vampire story in Touch of Evil! It's somewhat similar to Laurell K. Hamilton's vampires in her Anita Blake books, so if you like Hamilton, you'll likely enjoy this book.” —My Kingdom for a Book

“What a dark and delicious beginning they have given to [this] series. A completely different take on the paranormal/vampire tale. Fresh and inviting to read, but not for the faint of heart. This novel is a dark paranormal that will keep you on your toes, with sexy characters, great dialogue.” —A Romance Review
