Twisted Destinies is a series that starts out with the first book, Balloons in the Yard. Book one is about a little girl, Laine, being drawn into an underground community of vamps by balloons out in the yard of an old broken down house. She is used for her blood but escapes with help from the little prince Harry. Years later she meets up with Harry again, eventually realizing that her destiny was always entwined with the underground vampires. Book 2 is where we meet new vamps in search of Laine, who is now the most powerful vampire on earth since she is the living embodiment of the phoenix. The phoenix is only reborn into the world when in times of great need to right the balance. This time a great plague is ravaging North America and the vampires in search of Laine think she can help stop it.
