The Society of S: A Novel
“Murder comes to Saratoga Springs, sending Ariella Montero on the road to track down her mother, whom she’ s never met. Guided by luck, intuition, and a smattering of logic, she embarks on a startling exploration of her family’s history. Her journey leads her south, to Asheville, Savannah, and on to Florida—settings captured in rich, meticulous detail. Hubbard depicts Ari’s coming of age with “uncommon poignance” (Publishers Weekly), wit, and style, and THE SOCIETY OF S raises provocative, fresh questions about what it means to be human and how it feels to be an eternal outsider confronting an impermanent world.” (From Amazon.com)

The Year of Disappearances: A Novel

But, one by one, the people and things she cares most about keep disappearing. And Ari may be next. She can hypnotize, read minds, and make herself invisible, but can she escape her stalkers? ?Ari’s special talents are severely tested as she moves on—from a vampire community in the Sunshine State to college in Georgia to the primeval maze of the Okefenokee Swamp. In contending with the politics of vampire and human cultures, Ari comes face to face with the zombies that are infiltrating America, as well as the demons and shadows that haunt us all.” (From SusanHubbard.com)

The Season of Risks
“The vampire sects are at war—and war among vampires is fought not with weapons, but with minds.
My name is Ariella Montero, and I know a secret. Telling it will change everything.
Half-human and half-vampire, Ari confronts the darker sides of vampirism, and herself, as the sects deploy new technologies to battle for influence and power.
But beyond these challenges lie greater risks: Ari’s relationship with Neil Cameron, the first vampire to run for the U.S. presidency, must be kept under wraps from even those she trusts most. When scandal inevitably erupts, Ari is forced to face the consequences of her actions, learning the hard way that love demands delicate negotiations between memory and desire.” (From Amazon.com)
