Victor Decimus was once a ruthless officer in the Roman Legion—but all his power couldn’t make Jesus of Nazareth love him the way he wanted to be loved. Seeking solace and escape, he finds release with a seer who is something more than human.
Turned into a vampire, Victor is filled with rage and a lust for revenge. In two thousand years, he has honed these emotions to a razor-sharp edge, his thirst for vengeance matched only by his thirst for human blood. He takes pleasure in infiltrating monasteries and corrupting young monks, slowly undermining the Church of Christ.
Victor finally finds the perfect lover to replace him as a vampire and ultimately to join him in the Dark Kingdom, a young monk named Michael. Just as Michael’s initial resistance weakens, the local authorities begin investigating a ghoulish monster who has left a trail of bloodless victims. Victor must convince Michael before the investigation unravels his plans, depriving him once again of the man he loves.
