Author's Note: This story has been in the works since January, 2013 when I re-read elrhiarhodan’s ( Vampire World: The Blood of Helios ). I told myself I wanted to write a story like that, and this is the result.
I have lots of thank yous: First and foremost to to my wonderful artist, elrhiarhodan for the cover and icons and playlist (I’ve got a playlist!). Not only is she a fantastic author but a fantastic artist and beta reader as well.
miri_thompson’s critiques and comments made this a better piece. She made me think outside my outline and for that I am immensely grateful.
embroiderama and angelita26 get special thanks for listening to me whine about deadlines and plot devices and generally holding my hand throughout this whole thing. Ladies – I could not have done it without you.
And finally to everyone who hangs out in wcwu chat. Thank you - our Word Wars made this story happen.
