Donovan DeChance is a collector of ancient manuscripts and books, a practicing mage, and a private investigator. When, despite the finest in natural and supernatural security, a sexy and well-loved 300-year-old lady vampire is kidnapped right out from under her lover's nose, Donovan is called in to investigate.
He soon finds that there is much more to the case than a simple abduction when an unknown intruder invades his home and steals a very rare, very ancient manuscript. There will be no ransom for the kidnap victim, and if Donovan doesn't prevent an ancient, forbidden ritual from reaching its culmination, far more than a single vampire's undead existence will be at stake.
Calling on his lover and partner, Amethyst, and an odd assortment of contacts, informants, and connections, Donovan follows the ghostly trail of the kidnapper through a winding maze of intrigue - always a step behind - through magical battles, murders, and confrontations with a rogue band of young vampires intent on beating Donovan at his own game.
Vintage Soul is a dark urban supernatural mystery with a hint of romance. Set in an underground society, a city within the city of San Valencez, California, it opens portals to the unknown darkness that surrounds us. Fast-paced, strewn with clues, investigation, and magic, this is a book sure to slake the appetites of fans of mystery and the supernatural.
Welcome to the darkness; welcome to The DeChance Chronicles.

"This is Volume 2 of the DeChance Chronicles,"
Audible has this listed as volume 1 of the DeChance Chronicles. That is incorrect, this is volume 2. Volume 1 is on Audible, correctly labeled as Volume 1, title Heart of a Dragon.
I liked the way this story was written and developed as it progressed. I most definitely like the main character and his fimilar(s) though you really only get to know Cleo minutely compared to the other. Will have to check out if there are other books with this main character.
"One of the best in the series."
This book stands out among the group in this series for some reason. It feels tighter and better than the others in many ways. Give it a try.
"Vampires, love it!!"
