Sometimes a vampire's past can bite him in the ass.

Xan Marcelles--bassist for Crooked Fang, vampire and full-time asshole, is content with his quiet existence in the backwoods of Pinecliffe, Colorado. But life at the Pale Rider tavern is set to become a little more complicated when he gets entangled with a feisty, blue-haired damsel and her abusive soon-to-be ex boyfriend.

To add to his woes, he's gone from hunter to hunted, and his past returns to haunt him when a phone call draws him back to New Mexico. With the help of friends from his living past, he must get to the bottom of a murder, and figure out where he stands with his lover and his band, all while keeping one step ahead of his enemies. Hiding won't be easy for him, especially with a mysterious woman dogging him every step of the way.

WARNING: Cussing, smoking, drinking and hot sex

I had the privilege of receiving an ARC of Crooked Fang by Carrie Clevenger. Let me tell you, this is not your mother’s vampire story. Xan Marcelles is a fun and multifaceted character who will instantly grab your heart. He’s a bass player, a whiskey drinker and a womanizer. He’s also a friend, a protector and a lover. I have to say he’s one of my all time favorite characters now.

Clevenger takes us on a white knuckle ride as Xan cozies up to a blue haired girl with an abusive boyfriend, fights off zombie-type vampires and returns to his roots to help find answers after an old flame is murdered. Crooked Fang has something for everyone. Blood and guts, sentimental friendships, hot sex and crazy action/adventure. Utterly Xantastic!

If you’re a fan of urban fantasy/paranormal fiction, Crooked Fang is a must read. Look for the print book on August 1, 2012 here and the ebook from Lyrical Press on August 20, 2012. 

There' s also some fun merchandise available. Coffee mugs, aprons, etc. Check it here.

Take a sneak peek at Xan in action, pick up Blood & Fire. Another awesome read.
