Development Pitch

Thank you for taking the time to look over the pitch for A Violet Fire, where feminist TWILIGHT meets THE HANDMAID’S TALE and THE HUNGER GAMES.

Wavorly Sterling knows what she wants and she will never stop fighting for it: freedom from the vampires who oppress her dying human race. Her sole purpose as a lowly human in The Vampire Stratocracy of Cain is to offer her blood willingly to her master, the ruthless war general, Lord Anton Zein, and she has zero interest in doing so. But love can derail even the grandest of causes, eroding perfectly sound reasoning down to complacency and delusion.

Just as Wavorly begins to tolerate enslavement for the temptations of forbidden love, a sinister pair of secrets are unveiled by the leader of the human rebellion—a lost friend that Wavorly thought long dead—Castrel Lavarn. The first secret reveals a horrid betrayal which leaves our heroine shattered beyond repair. The other illustrates Wavorly’s role in a sacred prophecy, and empowers her more than she could have ever imagined. Both secrets, ensure that Wavorly has a horrifying choice to make:

Believe the vampire she’s grown to love against all odds, or stand against him and save the human race.

This book would make a good Film or TV show because of its dark timeliness (feminism/freedom themes), its sensuality (good-looking, domineering vampires), and a unique and original twist on the "chosen one" trope.
