Ships in 3-5 business days.
Christine Vargas is an independent, young working class-girl violently swept into another world--a world deemed unrealistic and impossible by many, a world under the mundane one she is so used to. During her physical transition, she has to come to grips with new powers she has been bestowed, and join up with her new 'Lord', Ryan Price, a gentleman of high social status, and twice her age. Her 'new family' is a motley crew of young vampires, and among the family are two rebellious twins trying to dethrone Ryan and take over the clan with their own legion of bloodthirsty (and drug-hungry), zombie-like vamps. Only Christine can determine the outcome of the oncoming battle and must chose quickly before the unthinkable happens. This is only the start of the strange, twisted, and mystical life Christine is now a part of, as more scarier situations present themselves to her, Ryan, and their delicate ABRAXAS clan--and sometimes, the 'monsters' aren't quite what you'd expect...

Oct 3, 2009"A humorous, fast paced collection" Christine Vargas comes to in a backstreet alley, mind foggy, vision and hearing enhanced and unsurprisingly very angry. This fighting spirit stays with her as she learns who has turned her into a vampire with a difference and her first meeting with Ryan Price, the Lord of a clan of local Vampires. The Abraxas Series is, to me, a fresh new spin on the Vampire Legends; it is a humorous, fast paced collection of stories that far surpasses some of the Vampiric novels I've read in recent times. For example, I had to chuckle when Christine stands just a little too close to one of her victims... However, I seriously believe that The Abraxas Series could have been expanded out a lot more: I would really have loved to read about how Christine progresses from the initial gaining of an extraordinary power to when she finally conquers the ability to control things with her mind. What difficulties does she face? What mistakes does she make? It... More > doesn't take away the fact, however, that I enjoyed this series very much and wouldn't hesitate to review more of Ms Santiago's work in the future.

Aug 27, 2009"Intriguing" I found Abraxas to be very entertaining and intriguing. I found that I had a hard time putting it down because I just had to know and understand exactly what was going on. Ms. Santiago obviously has a vivid imagination and a talent for writing. I did feel that this story could have been expanded just a bit. There were times when I felt like Ryan wasn't who he seems to be, but then things seemed to be as good as they were before. I also thought that Christine moved into her powers much easier than she should and maybe more time should have been spent explaining more about her and her new powers. Overall, this is an excellent book which I recommend highly. Melissa
Jun 3, 2009"Abraxas" I found this Series of Novellas to be the best i have read in a very long time. The gripping tale of Christine being reborn a Sophisticate Vampire (not one who feeds on blood) and being asked to join the clan that sired her. Where she meets the Lord of the Clan, Ryan. He has longed to find Christine, who shares the powers of Abraxas along with Ryan. He loved her even before he met her. He found her when he felt her being reborn a vampire. Together they fight the darkness of Philidelphia and teach each other the real powers of Abraxas. Ms. Santiago, has masterfully told a truly gripping and pleasently twisted tale, that will leave you wanting MORE. The only complaint I have, is that it's too short! It should be a full length novel. Congrats Ms. Santiago on a great story, and wonderfully wicked series of novellas. YOU ROCK!
Feb 17, 2009"ROCKIN' VAMP SERIES" Having been there when these were first available as individual novellas before the first 3 were put into one book, I can honestly say I was HOOKED at the first one, and was always eager to read MORE. I hated waiting, as I was dying to see what would happen next between Ryan & Christine, not to mention the crazy assortment of vamp fledgelings in the clan with vivid personalities all their own. It's unique, dark, gritty, funny, and creepy, balanced out at all the right moments. This is a world I was happy to step into, and will be sad as hell if it ever ends. But for now, I'm enjoying the ride, and it's a ride well worth taking.
