The Ashar Prophecies

New book coming December 2017

Writing is so much more than stories. Throughout my life, I dealt with different trauma and challenges. Finding healing and support in the written word, I relied on creativity to escape my troubles.

What readers are saying…

Tamara Rokicki's debut young adult novel provides a much-needed fresh take on the vampire genre. She creates haunting images and intriguing characters that will draw you in and keep you guessing as she explores universal themes of family and destiny.

Reading an advanced excerpt of The Ashar Prophecies, I am quickly pulled into the life of Hera Comb as she struggles with what has become her typical day of high school. As a reader, I can empathize with her desire to fit in and be "normal". On the surface, it seems like the classic high school experience of less popular girls. Almost immediately, you realize that there are other factors at play here - Hera's anxiety levels are amplified and then there are her recurring dreams.  At the end of a few chapters, I couldn't wait to find out whether the sixteen-year-old would ever fit in anywhere or with anyone and who it would be with.

Dealing with anxiety and a dysfunctional family is bad enough, but it gets worse when Hera is kidnapped and taken to a mysterious house secluded in the middle of a forest.

There she meets Aethen, the leader of the Ashar Coven, claiming to be a psychic vampire who feeds on human energy.

If that’s not shocking enough, he insists that not only is she a psychic vampire as well, but also the High Priestess destined to lead the fight in a supernatural war.

The Ashar Prophecy declares that Hera will Awaken in order to save her kind. If she fails, her people will be destroyed, shattering a long, intricate past.

Hera’s role--and survival--become more complicated as her attraction to Aethen grows stronger each day.

Hera is now trapped in a war between two vampire factions; one vicious and bloodthirsty, the other territorial and shrouded in secrets.  Her future--and the future of her coven--rests in her hands.


Will she find the strength to fulfill her destiny even if the secrets surrounding the Ashar Prophecy hide a terrible truth?
