Guest Post and Giveaway: The Land of Tears (Kindred Blood, #3) by Amber Riley

When people ask me why I chose to write about vampires, I never know how to answer them. I love vampires, but I never made a conscious decision to create my own. At the time, Twilight-mania hadn’t set in yet and Buffy had been off the air for years.
Kaden just introduced himself to me one night and things went from there. He was in the cemetery waiting for Merv to bring him his blood in The Flash of a Firefly. He was a strong enough character that I felt the need to explore his world. I had never ventured outside of writing short stories before, and most of those were historical fiction, so it was a challenge.
I’m happy I followed Kaden out of that cemetery that night, though. I’m glad that I didn’t let the fear of something new scare me away because I’ve found my niche in fantasy now. It was fun writing about vampires teaming up with the Church in The Well of Truth. I never would have experienced quiet the same adventure if I had decided to use another legendary creature instead.
I used the traditional myths surrounding vampires. They burn in the sun, holy water and crosses are big no-no’s, and they have fangs. But, I put these traditional vampires into a modern day setting and made it as realistic as I could. I wanted the reader to feel like it could really be possible for Kaden and his friends to be wandering around their city at night.
It’s no secret that there are a million vampire books on the market these days, but I still wouldn’t change a thing. My characters are who they are.








Title: The Land of Tears (Kindred Blood, Book 3)
Author:  Amber Riley
Publisher:  Self
Length:  Approx. 50,000 words
Genre:  YA Paranormal/Fantasy Romance

"Spain is the one place Kaden never planned to see again. Years after he escaped the master vampire, he has never looked back—until now. As he stands before enemy vampires and werewolves, he knows that determination is the only thing that can save Lyn from her captives. Everything Kaden has worked so hard for has to be forgotten. He must become a ruthless killer once again.

After everything Kaden has done to remain free, he has purposely walked back into his old life, leaving his friends behind in order to protect them. Now, in the midst of a bad game of hide and seek with Phoenix, Kaden must fool everyone into thinking he has returned for all the right reasons. But Phoenix is not easily swayed. He still resents Kaden for leaving and letting Tobias out of his tomb. Kaden is running out of time. If his plan fails, there will never be another opportunity.


In the third tale of the Kindred Blood series, a young life depends on whether Kaden can convince Phoenix and his fellow vampires to trust him. One way or another, things are about to end where they all began."

The headlights of a Volkswagen blinked at me once. I approached the car and bent to the driver’s side window. “Hey, Max.”

“Hello,” he replied slowly. He turned in his seat to look behind him. “Gabriel, are you sure about this?”
“We talked it through last night,” he said softly. “It will be fine.”

Max sighed. “Just remember what they said.” When Gabriel didn’t answer, he continued on. “Your brother has been filled in, like you asked. But please stick to the plan. I don’t want to make that phone call.”

Gabriel’s pale hand reached for the handle. I quickly opened the car door and helped him onto the street. “I am perfectly clear on what is going to happen.”

Max said a few lines in Italian. Gabriel smiled and replied. I didn’t know what they said, but it seemed important. The look Max gave me before driving away was unreadable, but it was clear that our relationship hinged on how the night ended.
