    Vivienne Courbet was born in Paris, but ultimately ran away from her home. In 1719, she went to a brothel, The where the news of her beauty, youth and innocence eventually reached the attention of her employers Victor and Mona. The duo was as impressed as her customers and converted the vibrant Vivienne into one of them, a vampire.

    She easily changed to her new lifestyle and became the toast of Paris, but left her birth city during the height of the Terror of the French Revolution. She lived quite comfortably into the twenty-first century when she became head of the powerful vampire council the Cadre at a critical time when the Others attack her species. Vivienne knows she and her kind must identity and either neutralize or destroy their enemy before she and others like her permanently die.

    For all those horror and supernatural readers who have followed the Vampire Legacy, the current tale THE VAMPIRE VIVIENNE provides many of the answers left open from the previous books. The tale also features the return of popular characters to add to the feel of completeness. Yet Karen E Taylor also refreshes her story line with a brilliant twist that entertains and hypnotizes sub-genre fans.
