|Plot Summary of Dark Lullaby|
Amber Quill, Oct 2003, 245 pp.
Their mother was a voodoo priestess, but the twin daughters Ashara and Zariaz were as different as day and night. Ash never wanted to become involved with voodoo while Zariaz reveled in it. On their twenty-first birthday, Zariaz and her assistants turned her sister into a vampire but she only killed those people who were evil. On the other hand, Zariaz was killing musicians at such a rapid pace that the vampire council condemned her to death.
Six decades later, Ashara sees a picture of her twin impersonating her and she knows that Zariaz needs to eliminate her. She is afraid, not so much for herself but for the love of her life Liam Archer, the singer for the up and coming rock group Darkside. As Zariaz comes closer, the terror mounts, and Ashara forces herself to give Liam up and join her sister in her mad quest. Liam however is not what he seems and has no intention of giving up the woman of his heart, no matter what he has to do to keep her.
