The Founder Revealed! 
SERAFINA AND THE FOUNDER (Serafina’s, Book 5) 
By Marie Treanor 


Welcome back to Serafina’s, Scotland’s unique psychic investigation agency... where, in the fifth book, the Founder is finally stepping out from the shadows!

So, who is the Founder? If you’ve read the other books in the Serafina’s series, you’ll know that he’s the first vampire ever created, from whom the rest of the undead population is descended. He’s a dark, mysterious, reclusive and terrifyingly powerful figure. Even other vampires know nothing about him, except to keep out of his way. What little knowledge anyone has comes only from legend and rumour

According to this legend, the Founder was a great sorcerer who made himself a vampire thousands of years ago. Feared and hated for his knowledge, he was severely tortured, causing the mutilation of, among other things, his vocal chords. The vampires believe that this is the reason they don’t talk - although, of course, there is now a newer line of vampires, created from a mixture of old blood and new magic, who do talk, but they are generally considered inferior to their silent brethren J.

At Serafina’s Psychic Investigations, they first learned of the Founder through the vampire Blair who has become Serafina’s lover. They know the Founder is best avoided, since even the vampires fear him, but they also know he’s keeping a wary and disapproving eye on them, because of Blair’s relationship with Sera. From being a mere name in the first book, SERAFINA AND THE SILENT VAMPIRE, he became a silent, watchful shadow in Book 2, SERAFINA AND THE VIRTUAL MAN. In Book 3, SERAFINA AND THE LEPRECHAUN’S SHOE, the staff of Serafina’s believed that for his own reasons he helped rescue Jack and Roxy from the Tuatha de Danann. In Book 4, SERAFINA AND THE PSYCHO SOUS-CHEF, he finally spoke, briefly, to the vampire Phil, and to the human witch Melanie, Sera’s friend; both encounters were warnings.

So why should he finally come out of the shadow in Book 5, SERAFINA AND THE FOUNDER? And surely Sera and her friends have no defence against such a threat? Well, I don’t want to spoil the story but I will just say that the answer to both questions involves Melanie, the overcurious witch with a secret, tragic past, and some old enemies of the Founder who’ve finally tracked him down.

I have to say I had fun dragging the all-powerful Founder into Serafina’s wacky world of bizarre paranormal happenings and unlikely relationships. But even to me, he himself is the biggest surprise – a master of illusion, elusive, sexy, unexpectedly humorous and irresistible in more ways than one. I hope you enjoy him :)

SERAFINA AND THE FOUNDER by Marie Treanor


Serafina's Series Book Five

Will curiosity kill the witch?

Kind witch Melanie Merrow regards herself as an honourary aunt to the eccentric staff of Serafina’s Psychic Investigations. But Melanie has buried a terrible past that her friends bring unwittingly to the surface during a séance. Plus her insatiable quest for knowledge has fixated on the most elusive and dangerous being on the planet – the ancient, tragic Founder, from whom all vampires are descended. 

The Founder, who hides himself in shadows and illusions, even from the scattered vampires over whom he watches from a distance, plans to leave the world of humans forever. He should not be engaging in banter and seduction with the beautiful and intriguing Melanie, let alone buying her chips or involving himself in the chaos that is Serafina’s. But, fighting the human police, the possessive spirit of a dead serial killer, a pack of vengeful wolves, and the anger of the Tuatha de Danann is easy compared to dealing with his own reawakening desires.
