This story is for everyone--but not everyone is for this story.

It is a dangerous tale of times past. A love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice.

Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover.

With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow.

Because the battle for the heart is always violently opposed. For those desperate to drink deep from this fountain of life, enter.

But remember, not everyone is for this story.

"A heart-wrenching journey of redemption and hope that left me sobbing, laughing, and clinging to every word."--Donna McChristian, 44, Environmental Chemist

Even he falls under their sway after entering their stronghold and succumbs to their “magic.” Still, once Toma watches the now pure of heart Lucine give way to Valerik’s devious plot to wed her, Toma breaks free of the coven’s hold upon him and searches for a way to set them all free.

The Christian Manifesto

Toma was undoubtedly infatuated with Lucine, but there was little reason provided for his love and given that the prevailing internal thoughts revolved around her beauty leaves me with the distinct impression this was not love.

Fiction Addict

It just so happens that someone later turned the nephalim into the Bram Stoker myth of some undead creature that is handsome, pale and has a crazy yearning for blood.
