away your crucifix, for it will not protect you, not in this chillingly
original take on the vampire legend. Its a tale of bloody revenge that will
expose the modern-day workings of the Vampire Clans and their constant war with
those who would hunt them to extinction. Its a story that explains away the
myths handed down through centuries of ignorance that keeps us from believing
the horrifying truth about the real vampires living among us today.
is the winter of 1362 in what was then a small Lithuanian farming village on
the edge of the Carpathian Mountains. A man and a child lay dead, their throats
savagely ripped open and their bodies drained of blood. The mans pregnant wife,
on hearing the news, goes into premature labor, giving birth to an
underdeveloped baby boy. The infant is not expected to live, and the mother
remains weak and sickly. The attending midwives leave the two of them alone to
share what precious moments they have left together.
creature responsible for the attacks is an injured vampire being chased through
the nearby forest by a band of determined Hunters. In his need for blood to
repair both the injuries and replenish his strength, the vampire doubles back,
losing the Hunters in the process. Reentering the village, hidden from sight by
the raging storm and the dark of night, the vampire breaks into one of the
small homes to feed upon the defenseless mother as she clutches her newborn
baby protectively to her breast. In the course of his savage feeding, the
vampire unknowingly allows some of his own blood and that of the mother to
spill into the infants mouth. The blood feeds and nurtures the dying infant,
turning him into something very, very different.
horrific act will set in motion a series of events that will leave a trail of
death and destruction across seven centuries and three continents, before it
finally reaches the new lands of America. One man, not quite human or of the
undead, will stand between the two warring factions of Hunters and Vampires, a
saviour to some and a deadly enemy to others, and this is his story.
