I read Dissension, The Blood Inheritance Trilogy #1, by Adrienne Monson two years ago. LOVED IT! Which means I’ve been waiting for two years for her second book. FINALLY Defiance has arrived. I am so excited to have Adrienne Monson guest blogging today about the characters in her series. Several of the characters have images attached of actors who could play them. The trilogy is published by Jolly Fish Press.

Author Bio: I have always had a voracious appetite for reading, which I think I inherited from my dad.
I love many different kinds of fiction and will sometimes stay up all night to finish a well written book. When I was eleven, I had an obsession with vampires and immersed myself in every kind of vampire literature. That may be why the first novel I have written is about vampires. Of course, everyone has their own version of what kinds of powers vampires have and where they come from. I am no different.
I live in Utah with my husband and two kids, whom I love with all my heart. I love Zumba, kickboxing, and weightlifting. I also love yummy foods, so I don’t look like a workout guru.
