Exciting news for Freda Warrington fans who have been wishing some of her older books were easier to find! Her most popular series, a vampire series written in the 1990s, is going to be re-released by Titan Books, and Warrington is going to write a new fourth book in the series. You can read the announcement on her blog.
According to the publisher’s website, A Taste of Blood Wine will be available on May 3, 2013.
The next two books, A Dance in Blood Velvet and The Dark Blood of Poppies, will be followed by the brand new book, The Dark Arts of Blood.

About A Taste of Blood Wine:
1918. A First World War battlefield becomes the cosmic battleground for two vampires, as Karl von Wultendorf struggles to free himself from his domineering maker, Kristian.
1923. Charlotte Neville watches as her father, a Cambridge professor, fills Parkland Hall with guests for her sister Madeleine’s 18th birthday party. Among them is his handsome new research assistant Karl – the man Madeleine has instantly decided will be her husband. Charlotte, shy and retiring, is happy to devote her life to her father and her dull fiance Henry – until she sees Karl …
For Charlotte, it is the beginning of a deadly obsession that sunders her from her sisters, her father and even her dearest friend. As their feverish passion grows, Karl faces the dilemma he fears the most. Only by deserting Charlotte can his passion for her blood be conquered. Only by betraying her can he protect her from the terrifying attentions of Kristian – for Kristian has decided to teach Karl a lesson in power, by devouring Charlotte.
I have wanted to read this ever since I saw this review at the blog for my local library’s book group. Vampire books are not normally something I’m interested in, but I’d be very interested to see what a writer like Freda Warrington did with the concept, especially after reading the review.
