The Dark Angel Trilogy
Book I: The Handmaiden of Death
Sixteen-year-old Amber Marsden must fight for survival after a botched drug deal leaves her orphaned on the streets of Detroit. With nowhere to turn, Amber takes shelter among the ruins only to discover she’s not alone in the dark…
Set against the backdrop of a city in decline, The Handmaiden of Death is a fast-paced, darkly spellbinding foray into the human psyche that will captivate fans of the vampire genre seeking a story with a lot less ‘sparkle’ and a lot more bite.
Written by Sarah Stafford, a Michigan native with lifelong ties to the Detroit area. Sarah earned her BA in History from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and has lived abroad and traveled throughout the US. Europe, and Asia.
In praise of THE HANDMAIDEN OF DEATH:
“Compellingly-written, character-driven story that follows the life of a wayward teen from the wrong side of the tracks who finds herself the guest of a wealthy man who turns out to be someone she never expected. Dialogue is incredibly naturalistic and flows to create scenes rather than relying heavily on narrative description to set the stage. Unique and fresh perspective on the vampire genre and full of deep, symbolic prose reminiscent of Anne Rice’s works. I highly recommend this up-and-coming author and look forward to the next installment in the series.” — Bethann Rodgers, The Bookish Maven, A Literary Blog
