Forget Edward Cullen and his sparkly friends: If you want a modern take on vampires with a dash of romance and some real bite, check out Jeanne Stein's Anna Strong vampire series. Stein's heroine has starred in eight books since 2006, starting with The Becoming
in 2006 through the brand-new Haunted
, the most intense to date, featuring a high-stakes fight against Mexican drug cartels and a race to rescue a missing girl. To celebrate the release of her latest vampire epic, Stein will appear
at the Highlands Ranch Tattered Cover
to read and sign the book on Tuesday, August 28.
In anticipation of that event, we chatted with Stein about her undead heroine's backstory and why you don't have to read the whole series to enjoy Haunted, and also teased out a few hints out about the future of the series.
