Keisha is a neurobiology researcher determined to discover the secret to intelligence to save humanity from itself. What she learns leads her to realize a bigger threat comes from beyond the stars. Yuri is a Russian vampire whose long-dead feelings respond to the scientist whose brain he admires but whose curves he can't resist. Will his love reach the places in her heart that she has ignored for so long? And can they defeat the prophecy of the undead to find happiness sharing eternity?

Sexxy's Thoughts

I wasn't immediately enthralled with Prophecy of the Undead. There is however, enough of an story here to keep you interested.
One hundred and fourty-three pages on my NOOK and I thought it was an okay read. Keisha and Yuri were good enough characters, but I'm afraid this story didn't power out my NOOK. Ms. McGier's world buiilding is enough to keep you reading, but I'm afraid the characters in these pages were just as my rating indicated "Good Enough".
The thing with Novella's  is that they can have just enough to make you want to possibly keep reading more books from the author or there's that dreaded thing with novella's when the story is cut and you feel like you are missing out of something vital.
It's how I felt with this book. So while the characters where interesting enough and there's a plot that is exciting enough...there is just not enough of the story for me. I wanted more. This is not to knock Ms. McGire's work, I think she did a fantastic job. And my thoughts here may not necessarily reflects someone else's.
You do have the hot sexxy vampire and then there is the different female heroine  She's of color and shapely. It's just my opinion that all vamps do not have to pale and thin.

About Your Author
Fiona has always had stories in her head...voices telling her about their lives.  She used to think that everyone walked around being entertained by characters in romance novels.  When she started writing her novels, she found that finishing a book meant that those characters stopped talking...but then others started demanding their time.  She figures that in order to tell all of the stories, she'll need to live to about 150!
