From the mists of time…dark powers arise.
Born in blood and entombed for six hundred years, the dhampir Chloe awakens. Zaccarius, the most feared Slayer of all, is sent to determine her worth and, if necessary, to render justice. Enthralled by the purity of her mind, he becomes her protector, only to fall beneath the armies of the Dark Master Jochad.
Ancient and dying, Jochad demands Chloe choose—her blood for the life of her lover!
"I would never let anyone hurt you. If I had to run forever to keep you safe, I would do it."
After six hundred years entombed underground, Chloe awakens. All she wants is to not be alone. The only problem: she craves her elixir, only she has no idea it's blood. Is she a blood-thirsty monster who will lead the world into darkness? Or is she an innocent? The Council sends feared slayer Zaccarius to discover the truth and see if she is redeemable. Chloe's artlessness breaks through all of jaded Zaccarius' walls and they fall in love. When he is captured, Chloe must choose between love and death. Can she save her beloved before it's too late?
Absolution is a magnificent paranormal romance with originality woven throughout. Can a creature who needs blood to survive be pure? I've read a lot of paranormal and urban fantasy novels over the years and never have I read anything like Absolution. The story unfolds in a predictable way, to be sure, but then takes the reader in a totally different direction. P.L. Parker's writing has a very gothic romance vibe which added an interesting depth to the plot. I connected with the characters right away, especially Chloe. I kept waiting for her vicious visage to take over, but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Nope, no spoilers here. The plot moves at a great pace and the ending was so fulfilling. If you're looking for a paranormal romance with a gothic vibe, pick up Absolution. If you're looking for a paranormal romance that's original, pick up Absolution. Highly recommend!

I write stories with alpha males and strong, determined women. I am a dreamer, an avid reader of fiction, a sometimes gardener and an inept crafter. I live in Idaho. I have a husband, three sons, two daughters-in-law, a granddaughter and little grandson. Over the years, I taught and performed dance but as time passed, I decided to try my hand at a new endeavor - writing. I enjoy life and all its promises.
