Book Tour for Vampire Elite by Irina Argo......

Last month an intense paranormal read was released.  Vampire Elite by Irina Argo is taking the spotlight today where you get an in-depth look at it through the delectable sampling ahead.  Learn from the authors what sets their series apart from others and then make sure to add this book to your bookshelves.

What makes Vampire Elite different from other vampire book is the presence of immortal beings called the Amiti. The goddess Hathor created the Amiti 8000 years ago as a counterbalance to the goddess Sekhmet’s creation of vampires. As Hathor envisioned it, the purpose of the Amiti was to protect humanity by providing a “buffer species” who would mate with vampires and fulfill their need for blood—and in the process, tempering the vampires’ violence by unlocking love in their hearts. Amiti blood has unique properties, including the ability to rapidly regenerate itself, and it is receptive to the will of the Amiti whose body created it. Amiti do not feel depleted when they feed vampires; in fact, they find vampires’ feeding to be an incredibly pleasurable experience, one their bodies were literally designed to enjoy. When a vampire takes a Amiti’s vein, a powerful connection is created called the blood-bond. Within the blood-bond Amiti can command their blood cells in a vampire partner's body to create pleasure or pain, to heal or even bring the vampire back to life, or to kill the vampire. Amiti blood that has been “artificially” drained—via catheter or cutting, for instance—loses these unique qualities, although it retains most of the exquisite taste and scent that makes it desirable to vampires. Legend holds that some Amiti have learned to control their blood even when it is removed from their bodies outside of the blood-bond.
Besides the blood-bond and power over their blood, Hathor granted Amiti the ability toshapeshift, mimicking or impersonating specific humans; a shielding power that allows Amiti to conceal their energies; and a variety of supernatural powers that manifest differently in each Amiti. And yet, in spite of all these powers, the Amiti have so far failed to accomplish their mission. In fact, the majority of the Amiti are now living in underground cells as vampires’ bloodstock, unwilling blood donors who are treated as enslaved livestock.
Among the few embattled Amiti who remain free, the leadership is preparing for a final battle that will eliminate the practice of keeping bloodstock forever—by annihilating the vampires themselves. And the vampires, of course, are doing whatever they can to keep that from happening. Want to know how it all plays out? Welcome to the world of the Vampire Elite.

How can you make a choice between saving your people and destroying the one you love?
A millennia-long war between two immortal races is about to come to an end. Long ago, the Vampire Elite began capturing members of another race of immortal beings, the Amiti, forcing them to become their blood suppliers—bloodstock—and locking them in underground cells, where they are treated like livestock. Now, the few remaining free Amiti are making a final attempt to strike back. The Queen of the Amiti has been proclaimed a traitor and executed. Her death makes possible the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna, who becomes the last hope of her dying race.
Arianna totally embraces her mission and is ready to fight for her people to the last drop of her blood but encounters an unexpected challenge—the vampire King Tor. The Amiti Queen and the King of the vampires are drawn into a trap of love where each has to make the ultimate choice: to kill their loved one or risk the extermination of their people.
Vampire Elite is an epic story of a bitter conflict between two peoples, and the effect of that conflict on everyone living in its grip. The characters are driven to love and betrayal, vengeance and sacrifice in a world without easy black-and-white answers.
Based on an ancient Egyptian legend, packed with action and intrigue, Vampire Elite will pull you into the entrancing world of immortals and open new portals into their hidden universe.
