N.S. BERANEK’S DEBUT NOVEL
Tired of being told—by straight and gay alike—that he loves “incorrectly,” vampire Ehrichto Salvatolle gave up on the idea of having romantic love long ago. When a member of the created family he’s focused on instead comes under threat from a mysterious illness, Ehrichto strikes a deal with his own sire, to return to the sire’s bed in exchange for his help. But when he meets the great-grandson of the first man to break his heart, Ehrichto spies a chance to have the one thing he’s always wanted: true love.

“N. S. Beranek’s Angels Fall infuses the gay vampire trope with Twenty-First Century sensibilities that ooze with sensuality and drip with sexuality. Beranek paints her complex characters with blood, sweat, and tears, resulting in a juicy storyline that will make your mouth water.”

“I’ve long admired N.S Beranek’s short fiction, and now she’s given us her first novel. It’s a riveting, elegant, and complex read. Beranek effortlessly weaves together Guatemalan villagers, Louisville teenagers, and a clan of deathless vampires, leaving us amazed at the diversity of her characters and settings.”
– Jeff Mann, author of Devour & Desire and Country
