Image of The Becoming (The Anna Strong Chronicles, Book 1)

A kick-ass new heroine and a talented new author have arrived on the paranormal scene! Stein uses the first-person perspective to reveal bounty hunter turned vampire Anna Strong's discovery of her new existence. Byzantine and emotionally charged, this intriguing book tantalizes with only basic answers to Anna's -- and the reader's -- questions. You'll have to wait for future chapters until all the mysteries and secrets are revealed.

It should have been a routine arrest for bounty hunter Anna Strong and her partner, David, but things go horribly wrong and Anna is viciously attacked. Upon her release from the hospital, she's visited by her doctor, a vampire named Avery, and given startling news: The changes she's been feeling are because she's now a vampire. And the vampire who attacked her is a rogue who's endangering their entire species. Avery wants Anna to use her bounty hunter skills to eliminate her attacker. But her search for the truth will take her in dark and disturbing directions. (ACE, Dec., 304 pp., $7.99)
