Blood Debt

Vampire Henry Fitzroy woke to the twilight-and the discovery that a ghost had invaded his inner sanctum. This was the start of a dangerous nightly game. Henry was allowed to ask one question of his mysterious visitor. If the answer was no, someone-innocent and unsuspecting-would die. It soon became clear that what this wraith-and the others who eventually joined it-wanted was revenge on those responsible for killing them. Henry could not find the source of these murders on his own, nor could he ignore his unwanted guests. He had only one choice. To call private investigator Vicki Nelson and ask for help. Henry only hoped that he and Vicki would both survive the experience... Watch Vicki, Henry, and Mike every week on Lifetime's original new series, Blood Ties, based on Tanya Huff's Blood Books. Формат: 10, 5 см х 17, 5 см.

Tanya Sue Huff (born 1957) is a Canadian fantasy author.


Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Huff was raised in Kingston, Ontario. Her first sale as a writer was to "The Picton Gazette" when she was ten. They paid $10 for two of her poems. Huff joined the Canadian Naval Reserve in 1975 as a cook, ending her service in 1979. In 1982 she received a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto, Ontario; she was in the same class as noted science-fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer; they collaborated on their final TV Studio Lab assignment, a short science-fiction show.

In the early 1980s she worked at Mr. Gameway's Ark, a game store in downtown Toronto. From 1984 to 1992 she worked at Bakka, North America's oldest surviving science fiction book store, in Toronto. During this time she wrote seven novels and nine short stories, many of which were subsequently published. She was a member of the Bunch of Seven writing group. In 1992, after living for 13 years in downtown Toronto, she moved with her four large cats to rural Ontario, where she currently resides with her partner Fiona Patton. Her current pet population consists of six cats and what she describes as an "unintentional chihuahua".

Huff is one of the most prominent Canadian authors in the category of contemporary fantasy, a subgenre pioneered by Charles de Lint. Many of the scenes in her stories are near places where she has lived or frequented in Toronto, Kingston, and elsewhere. This author frequently uses as character names the names of people in her circle of acquaintances.

The television series "Blood Ties" was based on Huff's Vicki Nelson novels, and aired in the United States on Lifetime. It was produced by CHUM Television and Kaleidoscope Entertainment. [cite press release
