Happy Monday!! I want all of my Paromantasy lovers out there to give a warm welcome to one of my favorite authors, Katie Salidas. Chronicles of the Uprising, is an unputdownable series that will literally keep you up all night! Every single book of the series, I was glued to the page!
Now here is the amazing...Katie Salidas!
People often ask, “Why do you write vampires? They’re played out, right?” They’ve been sparkly, dark, brooding, sex symbols, and everything in between, right? Sure, they’ve been all over the place, but one thing I’d never seen them be, is slaves. That’s where the premise of the Chronicles came from. What happens when we take the top dog and make them the underdog?
Vampires have always been a favorite creature of mine, since the early days when I read Anne Rice. There was an element to them that I really connected with. Monsters, sure, but misunderstood. That spark has always stuck with me, and when I write about vampires I do so from that standpoint. I want to deliver a creature from a whole new perspective. Give them a spin that readers can connect with and understand but not lose the deadly element that makes them exciting.
Post-apocalyptic fiction was a great medium for this latest experiment. A change to the rules of society based on the destruction of all we know. Give supernatural and human a level playing field and see what happens. Humanity, of course, often being more evil than the things we fear, ends up on top. And my vampires… well, they get the short end of the stick.
Don’t worry, not all is lost. That is where Mira comes in. She’s a vampire, taken by the humans and forced into servitude. But she doesn’t let that stop her. The struggle for freedom against insurmountable odds puts all her vampire abilities and warrior skills to the test. It’s a struggle that, I think, readers will really appreciate. Of course, that is for each reader to decide themselves. You just have to read and see…
Chronicles of the Uprising! The great cataclysm wiped almost all life from the face of planet Earth, but some survived. Not all of those who survived were human. Forget what you know of humanity in this thrilling trilogy by author, Katie Salidas.
Join Mira, a vampire and gladiator, as she fights against the humans who oppress her and the Otherkin who would use her for her deadly talents.
In the aftermath of the great cataclysm, vampires are enslaved by humans and used for blood sport as gladiators in the arena. Mira is undefeated, uncompromising, and unbreakable, but when an escape attempt leads her into the path of the city’s Regent, her destiny is changed forever.
Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Magistrate, Mira travels west with three weakened human fugitives, searching for the mythical land of Sanctuary. When she does find Sanctuary, it presents her with an unenviable decision between her own desires for freedom and peace, or honor and the human companions who risked it all for her.
Battle lines have been drawn between human and Otherkin, and a bloody war is on the horizon: one that will end in either a shift in the world’s balance of power...or ultimate destruction. Mira is caught between the old masters who used her as entertainment and the new ones who consider her as nothing more than a weapon.
