Her worst nightmare manifested, Cheyenne is brutally attacked and left for dead by a rogue vampire. Splattered across the front page of the Orlando Sentinel, Cheyenne discovers her sisters are missing while she recovers in the hospital.
The ransom call from the kidnapper sets into motion the rabbit hole of a parallel supernatural reality she invades to rescue her family. In a race against the hourglass, Cheyenne confronts a double-agent vampire, a cyberchondriac werewolf, and a mafioso dragon. Can they be trusted to help her, or are they a part of the twisted scheme?
With her sister’s lives on the line, Cheyenne has no choice but to beat the kidnappers at their own game and ensnare them with her own brand of deception

Exsanguinate – World of Blood – Book One by Killion Slade made me want to read more. As an avid reader of novels and books about supernatural beings, specially vampires and werewolves, I can say this book is more unique and more interesting than other similar books I’ve read. I love the character development of Cheyenne, the female protagonist. I also love that there are other new supernatural beings included in the story like dragons. The story doesn’t revolve around Cheyenne only, but to the other characters as well.
I am a fast reader so I read this book in one sitting. I can’t seem to put it down once I started reading it so I just finished it throughout the night. Each chapter is shorter compared to other books I’ve read but it’s well paced. I like that in some chapters, other characters in the book are highlighted. Reading Exsanguinate brought me fear, fantasy, romance, action and humor.
I loved this book and cannot wait for the next part to come out, your left wanting more and craving the next thing.
