Vicki Keire grew up in a 19th Century haunted house in the Deep South full of books, abandoned coal chutes, and plenty of places to get into trouble with her siblings. She spent the last decade teaching writing and literature at a large, football obsessed university while slipping pa.
She spent the last decade teaching writing and literature at a large, football obsessed university while slipping paranormal fiction in between the pages of her textbooks. When not reading and writing about all things paranormal, she indulges in her eclectic musical tastes, enjoys other people's cooking, keeps vampire hours, and adds to her massive stockpile of quirky t-shirts and blank but designer notebooks.
She'd rather burn the laundry than fold it. She believes that when an author wins the Newberry, he or she gets a secret lifetime pass to Neverland.
She still lives in the Deep South with her husband, two children, two dogs, and three cats, but is pretty sure her house isn't haunted. A person can't be so lucky twice. Gifts of the Blood is the first of a trilogy set in the mythical town of Whitfield, where she has several other paranormal series planned. Whitfield is a compilation of all she loves about her upbringing with a sprinkling of the things she doesn't. She spends time there when stymied on other projects, but also because it's an interesting world in its own right.
Even though she created it and the people who live there, it still has the power to surprise her. She hopes you enjoy it as much as she does. You can learn more about it and her other projects at:.

Yes, I know, I'm rating myself. But I do happen to like it. And I'm just that happy that it's live. Woo hoo! View all 4 comments.
Loved Loved it! I loved the relationship between Caspia and Ethan in this book. There was very little romantic drama which made me happy because I get tired of stories where one minute she loves him and other minute she doesn't. I'm happy that the story gets more complex at the end and leaves you hanging. Excited to see what happens next. Great job Vicki! In book two Darkness in the Blood of the Angels' Edge series, the story starts nicely where Gifts of the Blood left off, and takes off at the speed of light.
This book absolutely tops it's prequel in excitement, suspense, romance, magic, mysticism and adventure. Ms Keire has an incredible talent and mastery of writing that captures a readers interest quickly and holds on through every last page. The hook that entrances a reader isn't just within the storyline with this series, it als 4. The hook that entrances a reader isn't just within the storyline with this series, it also lies within the well crafted, almost poetic, imagery and emotion.
The story weaves the world of light and dark together in a way that aptly defines how there is nothing in our world or any other that is as clear as black and white or light and dark , it is truly countless shades of grey. The story builds on the foundation set in Gifts of the Blood, allowing the reader to more deeply connect with it's characters. The relationship between Caspia and Ethan takes on a new dimension with his mortality bringing in a pinch of vulnerability that the excitement of new love often overshadows.
Ethan's choice creates an air of uncertainty between then, giving more realistic depth to their relationship. Logan's role becomes stronger later on the in the book as does Asheroth's who's story I'm certain holds much more than has already been revealed. Overall this is an incredibly well written, exciting and enchanting story with a refreshingly unique storyline about Fallen Angels, Nephilim and all things supernatural. It kept me up well into the wee hours of the morning, not able to put it down, and I couldn't wait to pick it up again this morning.
Well worth the read The second war between light and dark. Caspia has no time to think about that right now, not with Ethan and his transition into humanity which doesn't go as smoothly as they had hoped. Until Ethan discovers that it isn't the transition that is the issue but the complete fact that he's now so completely mortal he has nothing barring him from any of the supernatural forces, making him appear clumsy when it really was the different people that made up the small town of Whitfield.
That is when Dr. Christian gives Caspia an offer she can't refuse, only she doesn't agree to it until Jack, another Nephilim that can call on shadows, comes to her aid in a dream. A skill he calls Dreamwalking. Events unfold rapidly, more secrets are revealed and more mysteries are presented. All of this comes to an abrupt end when Caspia finally comes face to face with Belial. Ethan's brother and exact likeness--except for his eyes I give this one 4 stars because of the many areas that had missing words in the sentences and the way this one didn't hold me as well as the first one, at least until the final few chapters.
I hope the third one is just as gripping--if not more. Also available on Amazon and on my site at www. I am not a "young" adult, so it is difficult for me to judge whether my grumble is because of my age I wish that Ms.
Keire would have a little less drama, drama, drama in the story. The main character always jumps to the conclusion that she is the ONLY one who can save the day, and it gets a little wearing after a while.
Catastrophe after catastrophe. I was really hoping that after the first book we would see a little less of that. I was so thrilled with the "new", for me at least, area of fan I am not a "young" adult, so it is difficult for me to judge whether my grumble is because of my age I was so thrilled with the "new", for me at least, area of fantasy that these books bring.
Love it. Caspia is awesome. I hope Ethan gets his powers back. The ending was incredible!!! Jan 30, Chelsea rated it really liked it Shelves: preternatural , romance , This second book in the Angel's Edge series is an improvement over the first in that I was able to relax a little - the sinister atmosphere of the first book is gone in favour of more action right from the very start of the book.
