For Amber Fang, life used to be simple: study library science by day, read by night and, when she got hungry, enjoy an ethical meal straight from the jugular. Her mother taught her well. It's just good manners for vampires to eat only murderers.

But now her mom has vanished, and Amber is alone. Her contract work as an assassin has been terminated. But the secret organization ZARC is still trying to hunt her down, using algorithms, drones and a murderess with metal hands.

Through the dark web Amber learns that her long-lost mother has been "disappeared" to a secret compound in Antarctica. When Amber arrives and pries open a door to investigate, what she discovers shocks her to the core. And it will change her life forever. If she survives.

Amber Fang: Betrayal is the second book in the popular Amber Fang series.

Kirkus Reviews
“A fast-paced, entertaining middle entry for fans of vampires and librarians.”
Quill & Quire
“Top-notch supernatural thrillers...The Amber Fang novels are an absolute hoot, relentlessly gripping, and genuinely surprising…For many readers, Amber Fang will serve as a midpoint between Disney’s Kim Possible and Kristi Charish’s Kincaid Strange.”
Booklist
“Funnier and more explosive than the first, with an enjoyable mix of mystery, espionage, and paranormal elements, with bonus librarian joshing.”
CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Genuinely funny on many levels, the Amber Fang books are quick, enjoyable reads for fans of Mission Impossible and Marvel movies and readers who like their vampires campy. Recommended.”
Resource Links
“For readers who enjoyed the first book, this sequel continues with the same strengths: well-described action scenes, clever insults and bad puns, sneaky literary references, and the glamour of international travel.”
