The Latest Vampire Book Takes the Traditional Route

Mari Miniatt debut novel, “Fledgling: Coiree Guardians – Book One”. Another vampire story why? Because the traditional vampires are still around, ready to hunt us.

Syracuse, NY

Mari Miniatt, a first time author, is happy to finally get Fledgling out of her head and on to paper. The novel is a look at vampires and their interactions through the eyes of a new vampire named Rebecka “Beka” Saberhagen. When Beka finds out that her brother's boss is a vampire that is enough to freak her out, but when is attacked and turned into a vampire by another, that should have sent her back to the hospital. She has to learn quickly how to survive. Meanwhile, strange things start to happen around her. Things that when she was a human, she would not have been able to understand, let alone combat.

The main vampires that are introduced, are familiar enough for readers of the genre, yet Mari Miniatt gives each of them a new twist, without taking away their predatory natures. Set in the fictional town of Deerbow City, the world for Beka changes from a self-centered day by day existence, to an active night by night life. The story is self contained, but leaves the reader with just enough questions, that you hope will be answered in the next book.

The novel has already built a small fan base in Syracuse, NY. But readers everywhere, that like vampires in any form, should find something to enjoy in the novel.
