The Dancing Valkyrie 2nd Edition

“The Dancing Valkyrie,” by Adirondack author Peter Klein, is the story of a young woman, Mary Hoffman, who is a librarian by day and who works nights as an erotic dancer at a topless club in Schenectady, NY.
Blood and sex, and of course love, but not the way humans think about it. This is the recurring theme throughout The Dancing Valkyrie.
Mary, needing a rest from her two jobs, a librarian and a dancer, takes a hike along a secluded trail in the Adirondacks of upstate New York where she is saved from two predatory young men by Beth, a beautiful, very rich woman who appears to be only slightly older than Mary. The two join together for the rest of the trail, becoming romantically involved along the way. Beth, it turns out is a very old vampire who quickly introduces Mary to the mystical world she lives in.
The novel follows Mary’s rapid acclimation into being what she was born to be - a vampire with a lust for both blood and sex, and draws to a conclusion when she meets a vampire who lives to kill other vampires - and whose name is Van Helsing.
In an odd way, this is a coming of age story. Mary adjusts to what she has become and tries to carry on the life she led before becoming a vampire. Her love for Beth deepens while she makes friends with some humans and feels an obligation to protect them from humans and other vampires. She doesn’t see herself as evil. Rather she sees being a vampire as a gift she needs to learn how to wisely use.
The new, 2nd Edition is now available from Amazon and Kindle.
