Honor and Chivalry Among Vampires : The story that tells the beginnings of Agata's bloodline.
Moldavia, 1509: While her beloved husband is away at war, Agata manages their estate and dairy. One night, however, a monster lurks in the darkness. Agata wakes in the birthing barn disoriented, wounded, and defiled. Her son is injured, but alive. The herdsman is discovered with his throat gnawed open. Plunged into a strange existence of monstrous cravings, she moves to secure her children’s futures before the details of the attack is known. With the conviction she might regain her honor by defeating the vampire, Agata leaves her parish. Unaided, she crosses the mountains to a crumbling Roman fort where it is said the vampire resides.
Kingdom of France, 1510: Inspired by the country’s famed knights, Agata and Jakub travel to France to protect their children from their new immortal natures. They find a king with greater concerns than protecting an unimportant rural community where it is rumored that three witches steal livestock and children. To prove his loyalty, Jakub is tasked to conquer the fiends. Soon, he discovers another beast, more hideous, dwells under the Earth
A little history about Honor and Chivalry Among Vampires
Agata and Jakub were originally characters seen in Immortal House - the oldest vampires of Seattle's coven of vampires. This whole series came about because fans of that book said they "wanted to know stories about Laurence's friends." So if you love an author's work you should definitely tell them. A series might develop from it. Originally published as two novellas in 2019 Honor Among Vampires and Chivalry Among Vampires were combined as an omnibus in 2023, specifically because all the other books in the series are full length novels and I got excited by the idea of doing illustrated hardbacks. Set in a backdrop of late medieval Moldavia and France, Honor is the story of Agata and Jakub becoming vampires and Chivalry asked the question can a marriage survive eternity -- or just this huge change of becoming vampires?

A little history about Intrigue Among Vampires
This book took me a long time to write most because I was fighting the format for a very long time - three years in fact. I first thought it needed to be a novella or maybe three novellas. It didn't work. Then I wrote Loyalty and a Situation Among Vampires. Finally I gave myself permission to write the novel that I wanted to write. It's funny how that happens, even to authors who've been at it awhile.
