Book II: Creche (Know Thyself)
Creed III: Creed (All Things Know Where they Belong)


Amedeo is Cruxim, an enigmatic, immortal fallen angel who knows little about his dark past apart from a curious prophecy and an unremitting lust for blood. Destined to seek redemption as a vampire hunter, he nourishes his insatiable blood lust on the undead. But when the object of his erotic passion, the novice nun Joslyn, is turned into a vampire and enters a coven, Amedeo's worlds collide. Shattered by the loss of his beloved, the dark hunter vows to wage an epic battle to rid the world of nosferatu once and for all, even if it destroys his vampire romance with Josyln, and even Joslyn herself.


Joining dark angel Amedeo on his mission to decimate the undead is Sabine. As passionate, headstrong, romantic and immortal as she is, she is also half-woman, half-lioness. As a Sphinx—a winged guardian once believed to be a myth—she has protected mortals from vampires since sin saw mortals evicted from the Garden of Eden. Yet Sabine comes to the battle pursued by her own enemies. Archaeologist Dr. Claus Gandler has learned the secret of Sabine's past and has vowed to torment her for eternity or find a way to destroy this dark huntress forever.


Captured and tortured by the evil doctor, Amedeo and Sabine are paraded as sideshow freaks in Gandler's Circus of Curiosities, a travelling freak show. Only vampire Joslyn has the power to intercede. Will she prove this dark angel's redemption, or his destruction?

Set in 18th Century Europe, this epic saga of forbidden love plays out amid a mighty battle of good against evil, fallen angel against nosferatu devil, and reason against madness in an adventure fantasy series a critic from Literary R&R described as "like the next Anne Rice series. There's a love story alongside some pretty gruesome and evil stuff " and others have called "compelling ... dark, visceral and not for the squeamish.”
