READER REVIEW: "If you have not read Redemption, the first book in the Penton Vampire Legacy series, I strongly, strongly urge you to read that one first. This book holds its own enough to be read out of sync but you will enjoy it much more if you know the first story...This author reinvents the vampires to suit her stories and you believe this is how vampires should really be acting and dealing, etc. rather than running out sucking people's blood. I have only seen one other author reinvent the vampire, Jim Butcher and Ms. Sandlin is definitely on par with him....If you find vampire lore fascinating, you will like this book. If you like supernatural anything, you will like this book. I read it almost straight through and I quite look forward to the third book. I highly recommend this book to any and all who enjoy fantasy but I also strongly recommend you read them in order." --Liz A. Belle

With the vampire world on the brink of civil war over the scarcity of untainted human blood, battle lines are being drawn between the once peaceful vampire and human enclave of Penton, Alabama, and the powerful Vampire Tribunal. Mirren Kincaid once served the tribunal as their most creative and ruthless executioner—a time when he was known as the Slayer. But when assigned a killing he found questionable, Mirren abandoned the tribunal’s political machinations and disappeared—only to resurface two centuries later as the protector and second-in-command of Penton. Now the tribunal wants him back on their side. To break their rogue agent, they capture Glory Cummings, the descendant of a shaman, and send her to restore Mirren’s bloodthirsty nature. But instead of a monster, Glory sees a man burdened by the weight of his past. Could her magic touch—meant by the tribunal to bring out a violent killer—actually help Mirren break his bonds and discover the love he doesn’t believe he deserves?
Absolution is the second installment of the Penton Legacy, a sensual and thrilling new series from paranormal romance novelist Susannah Sandlin.

Redemption, the first book in the Penton Legacy series, won the paranormal category in the 2011 Chicago North Romance Writers of America Fire and Ice contest.
