Natalie Pierce awakens to find herself buried in a box that strongly resembles a coffin. After some initial confusion she remembers that she has become a member of a very exclusive club; the living dead.
Natalie has three important tasks ahead of her. One: escape from her underground prison. Two: hunt down the creature responsible for imprisoning her. Three: discover who or what is behind the cause of the sentient shadows that only she can see.
As the long awaited and highly unanticipated Mortis, Nat has abilities that no other vampire has ever before possessed. She must utilize the strangeness that sets her apart from her new kin to fulfill a prophecy that was written over two thousand years ago. The ancient text predicts that it is her destiny to wipe out the vast bulk of her own kind. Despite all of the weird and wacky powers that she has gained, not even Mortis can avoid her fate.
Mortis Series, Tome 2 : Death Embraces
I woke to find myself staring at darkness so intense that only by blinking could I tell that my eyes were open at all. My left cheek was pressed against something soft yet gritty that smelled suspiciously like dirt. That’s because it is dirt, I thought in increasing confusion.
Granules of soil were in my nose, my mouth and clung to my eyelashes. Worst of all, they scraped harshly against the raw edges of my neck. Wait a minute…the raw edges of my neck? I didn’t like the sound of that very much. As far as I knew, necks weren’t supposed to have edges, raw or otherwise. They were just supposed to be attached to your shoulders. Then it dawned on me; I couldn’t feel anything below my neck at all.
Shocked, bewildered and terrified, I lay helplessly on my side and whimpered pathetically. I didn’t know where I was, how I’d gotten there or how I’d come to be paralysed. Keeping my mind as blank as possible seemed to be the way to cope with being in this state. Thinking would lead to panic then screaming and general hysteria would shortly follow.
