QSFer Qaida Harte has a new Fantasy book out:
College student Ahndrai has the ill fortune of falling into the grasp of an attractive, sadistic vampire. He encounters Eita, a vampire who lusts for Ahndrai’s sweet blood and tears apart his world. Eita demonstrates that every myth and legend ever written is only too real, and they are far darker than portrayed in any story.
Ahndrai must face a host of monsters that Eita allows to attack and kill him. Each time he dies, Eita revives him so he can continue to feed off of him. Ahndrai’s fears lead him to believe that every creature is as cruel and unforgiving as Eita. Then Nakiirn, a dragon prince, rescues Ahndrai. But even after Ahndrai overcomes his fears and falls in love with Nakiirn, they must contend with Eita’s cruelty before he succeeds in claiming Ahndrai once more.
There was nothing I could do. Eita became my life, day and night. I couldn’t get away from him. Nothing I tried deterred him. No books held the answer for me, no old religions, no old magics, nothing. Strange symbols that were supposed to send demons away did nothing to him. Garlic, crosses… he was immune to it all. The whole “vampires are unable to enter a house without an invitation” thing was utter bullshit. He was a creature from hell with nothing to stop him. I couldn’t get away from him no matter how hard I tried.
And I had tried everything. Eita would laugh and then attack me, raping me before killing me, or sometimes killing me while in the middle of fucking me. I couldn’t count how many times I’d died by his hands. My screams were my only reaction now. The pain was excruciating. Eita made sure it was. Several times I’d even killed myself. I threw myself on a knife, slit my throat, and hanged myself once.
All of it only to be brought back to life. The light of death, the one that would take me away permanently, was always snatched from me. My fingers would claw at the bright white ball, trying to urge it closer, to grab it and bring it down faster. No matter how hard I tried, I never reached it. The pretty glow left me the moment I blinked, and I blinked every time. It was driving me insane. I wasn’t sure how much more I could take.
I was forever doomed to be his plaything, a mindless doll that he could do whatever he wanted with. Several times I thought for sure I was crazy. It had to be my imagination, all the things happening to me, and somewhere along the way I’d dropped into insanity. I needed a padded room and a straightjacket to keep from hurting myself. As the days passed, months even—I didn’t know for certain, I’d lost track of time—my ordeal seemed to become more real. Nothing was as real as Eita when he was stripping me down, raping me, killing me.
I wondered often, how did I end up in such a horrible nightmare? Eita gave me nothing to answer that question. The only thing he ever told me was that humans were ignorant. We knew nothing of the world we lived in. Even so, he said it mattered little to him. So long as he had plenty of livestock to feed off, he didn’t care what happened to the world of humans, how much they realized or how little. Though he was thoroughly amused by our many renditions of monsters, more specifically vampires. He was no sparkly thing, no loveable creature, no misunderstood being. He was wretched, he was sadistic, and he was cruel. He was a monster. In every sense of the word.

My pen name is Qaida Harte. I’m a new author at Dreamspinner Press. I’m both nervous and excited to have my first book ever in publication. I’ve been writing for most of my life. It was only a handful of years ago that I decided to share my work with people online. On a whim, I sent my book “Dragon’s Treasure” to Dreamspinner press not expecting anything. I was pleasantly surprised. I write mostly modern fantasy, I’ve dabbled in Science Fiction and perhaps I’ll write one for publication at a later date. Everything I’ve written tends to have very dark elements to it, but there will always be that spice of romance to help lighten things up.
