Publisher's Description

New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee brings a modern twist to an ancient mystery surrounding Elizabeth Bathory, the most notorious female serial killer of all time.

Audra Ellison has no idea why she’s had her memory wiped clean, only that she chose to erase her past to protect someone else. But soon, a handsome stranger tells her she’s special. Unique. That she has the power to influence the minds of others. And that her life is in danger.

She soon discovers that she is the descendant of a serial killer, the infamous “Blood Countess” Elizabeth Bathory, and that she, like all her relatives for generations, is being hunted for the sins of her ancestor. She also discovers that she erased her memory to forget something important—important not only to her, but to those who want to see the line of Bathory ended for good.

Reunited with others like her—young, powerful Progeny living defiantly on the edge of extinction in Europe’s underground—she is hounded by danger at every turn and driven deeper into the inner circles of two ancient orders intent on destroying one another with a weapon only Audra can find. And as those around her start disappearing, Audra realizes the only thing that can save them all is piecing together a past she no longer remembers.

As she works to unravel the web of secrets and lies, Audra is thrust into a world of faith and doubt, of truth and deceit, of life and immortality, and she must decide who to trust—and what to believe. What she ultimately uncovers will change everything she thought she knew about who she is and what her lineage means.

A kaleidoscopic thriller that brings the underground world of the ancient cities of Eastern Europe to life like never before, The Progeny is a taut, breathless story of centuries-old intrigue and modern love and forgiveness.

    Lee is a fantastic writer, and has done a good job of pacing Progeny. At times, I felt I didn't quite have enough information to go off of, but any questions I had were always answered shortly thereafter. I was surprised by the supernatural twist in the thriller, but it was a good surprise. Definitely unique, and can't wait to see what happens next!

    Tosca Lee does it again! "The Progeny" grabs you on page 1 and leaves you wanting more on the last page. Ms. Lee's descriptions of foreign places and events is spectacular. I actually felt as though I were transported into the storyline along with the characters.

    With many twists and turns, the reader experiences the same emotions along with Audra. How is she to find something which she went to such extraordinary lengths to forget? Whom can she trust? Where will her quest lead her next?

    If you love to become immersed in a story that takes the reader to other places and time periods, you will love "The Progeny."

    Now the waiting begins for the sequel!!

    Tosca Lee in her new book, The Progeny published by Howard Books gives us the Descendants Of The Blood Countess.

    From the back cover: Emily Porter is the descendant of a serial killer. Now, shes become the hunted.

    Shes on a quest that will take her to the secret underground of Europe and the inner circles of three ancient ordersone determined to kill her, one devoted to keeping her alive, and one she must ultimately save.

    Filled with adrenaline, romance, and reversals, The Progeny is the present-day saga of a 400-year-old war between the uncanny descendants of Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific female serial killer of all time, and a secret society dedicated to erasing every one of her descendants. A story about the search for self amidst centuries-old intrigues and Europes underground sceneand one womans mission to survive.

    I recommend that you start early, turn off the phone, hit the bathroom and make a big bowl of popcorn. From experience once you get started you are not going to want to be interrupted. Ms. Lee has set it up so that you are captured from the first page and she doesnt let go until the last. This story reminded me of the old Fugitive television series only much more amped up. The characters are handled so well, the relationships are outstanding. Ms. Lee has given us a wonderfully engaging story.

    A captivating, adrenaline ride from page one. I couldn't and didn't want to put this book down, I was reaching for it and reading whenever I had a chance. There are so many twists and turns, I was scratching my head not sure who or what to believe. Tosca creates layers, upon layers with this story, the characters are believable and real. This book is my favorite book that I have read so far this year, I am anxiously awaiting book two!

    Highly recommended!!!
