PRAISE FOR THE ANNA STRONG, VAMPIRE SERIES
 
CHOSEN
 
“With each book in the series, not only have Stein’s characters become stronger but so has her writing … hard-hitting urban fantasy with a hard-hitting female lead.”

Fresh Fiction
 
 
“I walked away from the book with a lot of thoughts and questions as well, and cannot wait to see where Anna’s adventures take her next …
Chosen
is an excellent book and probably the most enthralling book in the series thus far.”

Bitten by Books
 
 
“From the opening chapter of this terrific series, Stein has sent her gutsy heroine on an uncharted journey filled with danger and bitter betrayal … In this pivotal but emotionally brutal book, skillful Stein reveals some critical answers and delivers some devastating blows. Like a fine wine, this series is improving with age. Brava!”

Romantic Times
(4½ stars)
 
 
RETRIBUTION
 
“The fifth book in the exceptional first-person Anna Strong series is a powerful entry in an amazing saga.”

Romantic Times
 
 
“Ms. Stein has a true gift in storytelling and continues to add exciting new elements to this well-built world.
Retribution
is an engrossing read with an action-packed story line and secondary characters that are every bit as intriguing as the heroine. This is a must-read for fans of the series!”

Darque Reviews

Monsters and Critics
 
 
BLOOD DRIVE
 
“A terrific tale of supernatural sleuthing … provides edge-ofyour-seat thrills and a high-octane emotional punch.”

Romantic Times
 
 
“Once again Jeanne C. Stein delivers a jam-packed story full of mystery and intrigue that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat! Just like [with] the first book in the Anna Strong series,
The Becoming
, I could not put this book down even for a second. You will find yourself cheering Anna on as she goes after the bad guys. Jeanne C. Stein has given us a wonderful tough-as-nails heroine everyone will love!”

Night Owl Romance
 
 
“Jeanne C. Stein takes on the vampire mythos in her own unique manner that makes for an enthralling vampire thriller. Readers of Laurell K. Hamilton, Tanya Huff and Charlaine Harris will thoroughly enjoy this fast-paced novel filled with several action scenes that come one after the other, making it hard for the readers to catch a breather.”

Midwest Book Review
 
 
“I loved this book … hugely enjoyable … an exciting read and everything any vampire-fantasy fan could hope for.”

LoveVampires
 
 
“ A really great series. Anna’s strengths and weaknesses make for a very compelling character. Stein really puts you in [Anna’s] head as she fumbles her way through a new life and the heartbreaking choices she will have to make. [Stein] also introduces new supernatural characters and gives a glimpse into a secret underground organization. This is a pretty cool urban fantasy series that will appeal to fans of Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series.”

THE BECOMING
 
“This is a really, really good book. Anna is a great character, Stein’s plotting is adventurous and original, and I think most of my readers would have a great time with
The Becoming
.”
—Charlaine Harris, #1
New York Times
bestselling author of
the Sookie Stackhouse novels
 
 
“A cross between MaryJanice Davidson’s Undead series starring Betsy Taylor, and Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series. [Anna’s] a kick-butt bounty hunter—but vampires are a complete surprise to her. Full of interesting twists and turns that will leave readers guessing.
The Becoming
is a great addition to the TBR pile.”

Romance Reviews Today
 
 
“With plot twists, engaging characters and smart writing, this first installment in a new supernatural series has all the marks of a hit. Anna Strong lives up to her name: equally tenacious and vulnerable, she’s a heroine with the charm, savvy and intelligence that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and Kim Harrison will be happy to root for … If this debut novel is any indication, Stein has a fine career ahead of her.”

Publishers Weekly
 
 
“In an almost Hitchcockian way, this story keeps you guessing, with new twists and turns coming almost every page. Anna is well named, strong in ways she does not even know. There is a strong element of surprise to it … Even if you don’t like vampire novels, you ought to give this one a shot.”

Huntress Book Reviews
 
 
“A wonderful new vampire book … that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
