The Vampires and the Talisman Crossover By Brenda Pandos
The Vampires is the third part of the Supernatural Chronicles: The New Orleans Collection, and it features my characters from my popular Talisman series. When the Dynamis authors first started talking about this collaboration, I jumped on the idea of writing about the vampire race. I could work within the framework of the Supernatural Chronicles while getting to play with these characters again.
Julia and Nicholas were my first characters and they’ll always be my first loves. They brought me into this writer world that has become my dream job. They and the rest of the cast were already fully developed, ready for a new adventure so I gave them this one, a note delivered with a mysterious message that leads them to New Orleans.
Although The Vampires picks up after the four books of the Talisman series, it’s okay if you haven’t read them yet. You’ll still be able to understand The Vampires novella. In fact, The Vampires is a great introduction into Julia and Nicholas’ world, and hopefully, you’ll enjoy them and will want to read the others. If you’ve already read their story, then I hope you enjoy revisiting with these characters that mean so much to me.
Mommy warrior, comma-kazi, wife, computer whisperer, Pinterest addict, chocolate enthusiast, vampire and zombie slayer, merman magnet, and lover of all things pure and right. Well... maybe after a cup of coffee or two.
Author Brenda Pandos lives in California and is surrounded by the loves of her life—her husband, her incredible boys, a grumpy cat, eight chickens and her characters. Before becoming a full-time author, she worked as an IT administrator. After her son’s ASD diagnosis, everything changed. Being pregnant and embarking on a 35 hour a week in-home therapy schedule was grueling to say the least. She craved a meaningful escape.
Never having aspired to write before, she wrote her own vampire tale for kicks. Four months later, The Emerald Talisman was born. Unsure who'd want to buy her novel, she entered her fledgling book in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and placed as a Quarter-finalist. That gave her the courage to go Indie and from there, she traversed into a life she’d never imagined and loves to this day. And since a small group of fans grew into a larger group of fans, all cheering her onto books two, three, four, five... and so on, she hasn't looked back.
