About "Vampire Ascending":
Sabrina Strong is a Touch Clairvoyant who knows a secret. She knows her mother was turned into a vampire when Sabrina was ten. Now that she is grown up, a powerful magnate in the Chicago business world hires her to reveal the identity of who relentlessly murders vampires in his ultra-modern stronghold of a hotel. Sabrina is not thrilled about the aspect of working for vampires, but she needs the money, and she wants to find the gorgeous and mysterious vampire who has been turning up in her dreams. Is he the one who bit her when she was ten, marked her for his own, and turned her mother so long ago? Little does Sabrina know that her whole life is about to change when her best friend becomes a victim, too, and Sabrina is the only one who can find her. Her friend's fate intensifies the desperate need to find the murderer and, consequently, brings her into contact with a rogue vampire. Sabrina is quickly immersed in romantic trysts and dangerous situations involving scheming vampires, shift changers, and werewolves.

Reviews of Vampire Ascending:
Sandpiper, Amazon Csutomer Revew, 5 Stars:
Let me say upfront that I do NOT read vampire novels… My wife has read and enjoyed Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series and even "forced" me to watch the movies with her. Still, I do not read vampire novels…
However… I (reluctantly) agreed to review to Lorelei Bell's "Vampire Ascending," and now you can call me "converted." Maybe it was Bell's captivating writing style that drew me more and more into the story, which made it difficult for me to put the book aside. Bell's greatest talent is writing like she speaks while still maintaining a high level style, which contributes to an enjoyable and fluent reading.
Add to this a captivating story line with unique and believable characters, scenes, events, locations, and more things that I did not expect, and I believe, that separates Bell from the majority of writers in the vampire genre.
The story is based on a friendly coexistence of regular human beings and vampires. Well, the friendliness ends as someone starts murdering vampires, calling the VIU (Vampire Investigative Unit) into action. The VIU monitors vampires' activities to assure they follow the established laws.
In addition, Bjorn Tremayne, master vampire, whose wife has been killed, hires the main character, Sabrina Strong, a woman with very special skills, to identify the serial killer.
The book starts with the job interview and from there on the reader is entangled in a mixture of mystery, suspense, romance, action, and adventure. Without spoiling the experience, Sabrina succeeds in her task, but the ending indicates that Bell has more adventures in mind for Sabrina. I am certainly looking forward to her next book!
YoZoMamma, Amazon Customer Review, 4 Stars:
Sabrina Strong is a typical young woman with a decidedly atypical talent; Sabrina is a Touch Clairvoyant. Still grieving over the recent death of her father, and still seeking the reason her mother was "turned" eleven years before, Sabrina answers a job advertisement "Clairvoyant needed - only serious applicants need apply", and begins her adventure working for one of the Magnates of the North American Vampire Association.
Hired to discover who killed the Vampire Magnate's wife, our engaging adventurer finds herself working with vampires, werewolves, elves, demons and shape-shifters. While Sabrina's focus is on discovering the killer, she seeks the vampire responsible for "turning" her mother and leaving his mark on her own arm.
Vampire Ascending is a captivating blend of action, intrigue, romance and the supernatural. Lorelei Bell has incorporated humor with a fast-pace that makes for exciting reading, and has developed a heroine that is engaging, quirky and appealing. If you are a fan of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse Series, I believe you are in for a treat. I didn't want to put this book down, and I look forward to more from Lorelei Bell!
