Clan Novel Toreador is the first in this series. Among the thirteen clans of the Kindred—vampires who secretly manipulate human events—the Toreador are dismissed as hedonists. They accept this as the price of preserving that which is beautiful...particularly themselves. Yet not all Toreador are so easily ignored. the cunning Victoria Ash makes Atlanta's most famous art museum her venue for plots that could win her control of the city. And though the sculptor Leopold desires only solitude to perfect his art, he is forced to enter the dangerous world of his kin to discover the truth of his past—with consequences that will change Kindred society forever.
That fateful event is the snowflake that triggers an avalanche of an alternative history spanning 2,300 years, marking the end of ancient Greece as we know it, and resulting in a Sparta ascendant.
And now in modern times, Xenophon, Sparta’s Ambassador to the United States, must use all his strength, wits, and cunning to quell an escalating crisis between a crippled US and a Spartan Empire all too eager for war.
