Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013

1870. A time known as The Great Killing. The vampire clans arose and slaughtered humanity with unprecedented carnage in the northern parts of the world. Millions perished; millions were turned into herd animals. The great industrialized civilizations of the world were left in ruin. A remnant fled south to the safety of the ever present heat which was intolerable to vampires. There, blending with the local peoples, they rebuilt their societies founded on human ingenuity, steam and iron. The year now is 2020. The Equatorian Empire, descendant of the British Empire, stretches from Alexandria to Cape Town. Princess Adele, quick witted, combat trained and heir to throne is set to wed the scion of the American Republic, a man she has never met. Their marriage will cement an alliance between the nations and set the stage for war against the vampires in an attempt to retake the north. Prepared to do her duty she finds herself caught in a web of political intrigue and physical danger.

The Greyfriar, a legendary vampire hunter from the north, appears ready to rescue the Princess and return her home but he harbors secrets of his own. As the power struggle between the vampires and humans increase Adele and The Greyfriar are caught in the middle, on the run, being hunted, and fighting for not just their own lives, but for future of humanity.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Traci | 1/10/2014

    " The first few chapters of this book were really hard for me to get into. The fighting among the vampires and the humans was sometimes boring and painstaking. However, I really started to enjoy this more to the end of the book. I've heard a second book is coming out and although this wasn't a favorite of mine, I wouldn't mind reading the second to see how things turn out. "

    " I could not get into this book, but just because this book wasn't for me, doesn't mean it isn't something you would like. I would recommend to at least try this book, and see how it makes you feel and whether or not if the story is for you. "

    " Loved the clever steam punk atmosphere of the book, but the vampire/human love story is a bit tired. "

About the Author

Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith met at a bookstore thanks to The Uncanny X-Men #201. They had to get married because of a love of adventure stories with heroes who save the day and fall in love. Soon they were writing stories together, including The Shadow Revolution, The Undying Legion, The Conquering Dark, and the Vampire Empire series. After years of comics, short stories, and novels, they remain happily married. When not writing or talking about writing, the couple watch classic movies, play Warcraft, and struggle to entertain their cat. They still have that copy of The Uncanny X-Men #201.
