Critical Praise

"Deep, cutting, an intoxicating blend of human and supernatural, of characters scarred by the past, drained by life. This is the book I’ve waited for."

—Tosca Lee, author of Christy Award Finalist Demon: A Memoir

"Thirsty is more than a run-of-the-mill vampire story. I loved the way Tracey Bateman incorporated the struggle against alcoholism into the theme. Great writing and a compelling read!"

—Colleen Coble, author of Lonestar Secrets and the Rock Harbor series

"Thirsty is one of those rare treats that not only delves deep into generational issues and addictive behaviors, but also keeps the pages turning. Tracey Bateman writes with a sensitive ear to dialogue and family dynamics, bringing a human, and ultimately redemptive, angle to the vampire story. Well done!"

—Eric Wilson, author of Haunt of Jackals, Field of Blood, and NY Times bestselling Fireproof

"Thirsty does exactly what a novel like this should do. It grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. But it does more than that, deftly delivering truth and beauty in a way that transcends the genre."

—Sigmund Brouwer, author of Broken Angel
