In 1314, King Philip of France desperately needs the Templar treasure to save his country from financial ruin. Jacques de Molay accepts the secret mission to find and deliver his country's salvation. But his most trusted friend's betrayal soon leads to the king sentencing Jacques to be burned to death. With a bitter heart and nothing to lose, Jacques offers his soul to Mithras, the vampire god, and devotes the rest of his existence to converting legions of mortals to his following. Fate, however, has a different plan for Jacques. The beautiful gypsy Violca plants the spark of human emotion inside him, and she tells him it may be possible for him to become mortal once again. But to do so, he must resist the urge to consume human blood-until he finds his true love, and she allows him to drink freely of hers. This first Epic of a trilogy chronicles Jacques quest across five centuries, through the world's darkest places and fiercest battles, to find true love. When all seems hopeless, will his human emotions overpower his immortality and force him to give up? Or will he overcome impossible odds to regain his humanity in this sinister game of life and death, plagued with dark forces, fierce battles, and a dangerous romance between divergent worlds.Take heed, a violent storm is rising in the universe. The Vampire horde, destroyer of civilizations and worlds has awakened./p>

A chilling chronicle of the often ignored history of vampirism as it has surfaced repeatedly in news articles, historical accounts, and first person interviews, this shocking account of occultist rituals and the inhuman forces that influence them shines a light on the horrifying truth. Revealing that real vampires are not immortal, do not have fangs or sleep in coffins, and have no fear of sunlight or crucifixes, the examination dispels many myths but also confirms the truth behind several traits of real vampires, such as the insatiable thirst for blood and the dream of an eternal soul. Complete with 30 spinetingling tales of the hideous wraiths and creatures that lurk in shadow, this fascinating collection includes the stories of the Mexican prostitute who mesmerized an entire village, convincing them she was an Incan goddess who required human sacrifice for her magic; the three teenagers who left a trail across the South as they conducted blooddrinking rituals with animals; and the mysterious Lady in Black who draws psychic energy from men who dare approach her as she wanders through city streets and parks.

Still bent on obtaining the Holy Grail generations after his time in the Holy Land, Montrovant receives word that the Knights Templar are about to fall. Whether spurred to action by an old loyalty to the Order that he founded or the rumor that biblical treasures lie hidden in the recesses of the Templars' castle, the vampire known as the Dark One sets off to the rescue. Enroute, Montrovant must deal with the trickery and unfathomable machinations of Santos, the dark guardian of lost treasures who advises the Knights from the bowels of their castle; Kli Kodesh, an ancient Nosferatu whose desire for entertainment often overlooks the lives lost to win his pleasure; and even Eugenio, Montrovant's own sire. Montrovant and his companions—including a woman he nearly Embraced centuries ago—race against time and the arrival of a Church-sponsored army sworn to destroy the now corrupt Templars to wrest the Grail free of those who would keep it hidden. This second volume of The Grails Covenant trilogy follows To Sift Through Bitter Ashes and interweaves characters and action with the modern vampire saga, the Trilogy of the Blood Curse.

Opinions are those thoughts and beliefs that we each hold. Some will agree with your opinions, and some will not. We each march to the beat of our own opinionated drums. As we do, the beat continues to go on and on and on. Lah deeh dah deeh deeh . . . Lah deeh dah deeh dah. The interviews continue in book 7 with opinions and facts that you may or may not agree with. These opinions are part of the journey to show that we as humans are very different from one another. Be patient as you disagree with some of the interviews and opinions. Then all hell breaks loose. The truth is finally revealed. In book 5, a brother was lost. No one is perfect, as more confessions come forth in book 8. A lost boy of a large family is found by sheer chance. Lovers depart from each other as a wedding and a fairy-tale honeymoon take place. A third brother is discovered, with a son finding his dad whom each had known all along. And at the same time, that discovery of father and son is lost along with a beloved grandchild. I thought it was just a dream. But then reality happens in book 10. So why do bad things happen to good people? It’s called life, and sometimes life can suck.

“Post/modern Dracula” explores the postmodern in Bram Stoker’s Victorian novel and the Victorian in Francis Ford Coppola’s postmodern film to demonstrate how the century that separates the two artists binds them more than it divides them. What are the postmodern elements of Stoker’s novel? Where are the Victorian traits in Coppola’s film? Is there a postmodern gloss on those Victorian traits? And can there be a Victorian directive behind postmodernism in general? The nine essays compiled in this collection address these and other relevant questions per the novel and the film at three distinct periods: (post)modern Victorianism, post/modernism, and finally postmodernism. Part I on (post)modernist issues in Stoker’s novel establishes the link between Victorian themes and postmodern praxes that begins with colonialist concerns and ends with poststructuralist signification. Part II looks at the post/modernist traits in Stoker’s Dracula, those obviously influenced by modernism but also, with the help of the novel’s plasticity vis-à-vis the media over the last century, by postmodernism. Part III examines more closely the novel’s postmodern characteristics, particularly with respect to Coppola’s 1992 film, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Dracula defies time and promises to undermine any critical study of it that precisely tries to situate it within a given epoch, including a postmodernist one. Given its relationship to late-capitalist economy, to post-Marxist politics, and to commodity culture, and given its universal appeal to human fears and anxieties, fetishes and fantasies, lusts and desires, Stoker’s novel will forever remain post/modern—always haunting our future, as it has repeatedly done so our past. Though scholars of Dracula and Gothic literature in general will find some of the essays innovative and engaging per today’s literary criticism, the book is also intended for both an informed general reader and a novice student of the novel and of the film. As such, a few essays are highly specialized in postmodern theory, whereas others are more centered around the sociohistorical context of the novel and film and use various postmodern theories as inroads into the novel’s or the film’s study.
