ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 22, 2014
Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…
Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he’s worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice.
ABOUT THE SERIES from Rebecca Zanetti:
The Kayrs family leads not only the vampire nation, but also the Realm, which is a coalition of vampires, shifters, and witches. Years ago, an evil vampire race called the Kurjans declared war on the Realm by creating a deadly virus that infects vampire mates. The virus attacks chromosomal pairs and takes mates from immortal to human, and maybe down to death. No cure for the virus has been found for mates, and the vampires, who are male only, know that time is running short.
REVIEW: MARKED is the seventh and final installment in Rebecca Zanetti’s adult, contemporary Dark Protectors paranormal romance series. This is prophetess and human Janie Kayrs and vampire/warrior Zane Kyllwood’s storyline-a friends to lovers storyline that started when Janie was a small child.
As the Chosen One and human daughter of vampire leading Talen Kayrs, Janie knows that that to succeed with what the prophecies have ordained, she must attend the peace talk accords between the supernatural powers of The Realm. There, she will come face to face with the man who has visited her dreams since she was a four year old child.
Zane Kyllwood has known that Janie would one day be his mate, but there is a war on the horizon and several angry, male vampires are waiting to destroy everything that Zane represents. Zane is not the man everyone thought him to be, and in this, Zane’s history and family connections will place Janie and everyone she loves in danger.
Zane and Janie have a prior connection-one that continues in a dream walking state where Janie enters another realm to communicate with both the living and the dead. Here, Janie feels safe from any threats until the dreams turn into a reality. Zane has been Janie’s otherworld companion since childhood and now it is time to claim Janie as his own.
The premise follows the continuing struggle to find a cure for Virus 27-a flu like virus developed by the Kurjans that infects vampire mates and attacks the chromosomal pairs eventually rendering the supernatural back to a human like state. All, if not most, of the previous storyline couples play a supporting and secondary role throughout the story as the vampires continue to battle the virus, the Kurjans and the demons who have sided with the enemy.
MARKED is the culmination of several storylines, the search for a cure and a happily ever after for the vampire nation, their family, and their friends. There are moments of humor, betrayal, action, heartbreak and love all blended into a storyline where Janie will be targeted by two warring factions of The Realm for it is said that Janie is the key to everyone’s survival. As the powers battle for control, Janie will have to battle a man who is determined to protect Janie-at all costs.
Rebecca Zanetti’s MARKED is a passionate conclusion to the Dark Protector series. The good guys will win; the bad guys will lose; and the future will be revealed when another young child begins walking through dreams of her own.
