The Geomancer: A Gareth and Adele Novel (11/2015)
Although this series could probably be read without first reading the novels of the VAMPIRE EMPIRE TRILOGY, you would be missing a lot of relevant information about people and events that are specifically referenced in The Geomancer. The authors do provide some bare-bones summaries of past events, but not much background on some of the key characters (e.g., Lady Hallow, the Witchfinder).
The apocalyptic event in Edinburgh weakened Adele's geomantic abilities. If the Witchfinder can use geomancy against humanity, she may not have the power to stop him. If she can't, there is nowhere beyond his reach and no one he cannot kill.
From a Britain struggling to rebuild to the vampire capital of Paris, from the heart of the Equatorian Empire to a vampire monastery in far-away Tibet, old friends and past enemies return. Unexpected allies and terrible new villains arise. Adele and Gareth fight side-by-side as always, but they can never be the same if they hope to survive.
