"An Original Vampire Story"

This takes place ten thousand years after World War III, but there is a Old World quality to it.

Aramis Faro is a young sea captain who docked his boat in the wrong port. His crew is murdered and he has lost his soul. He doesn't fully embrace his vampirism, hiding it from his friends. Then one night he saves a woman who by all rights should have died. Due to the events that led Aramis to make her a vampire, they are now on the run seeking others who are like them.

Aramis confronts the vampire who made him, learning more than he ever wanted to know. Once he's read the only surviving copy of the Holy Bible, he begins to question his beliefs.

Mr. Dowen has written a controversial piece intertwining religious beliefs and vampirism. I didn't want to put down the book. It keeps you wanting to turn to the next page. There's a twist at the end, leaving it wide open for another book.

In a world that is held together by the taut fabric of the hierarchy it imposes, the reach of its influence can touch the brink of war. Ten thousand years after World War III, the history of humanity has come nearly to a full circle on Balimyst, amidst every imaginable fantasy creature that was once left to dreams. Religion is left to lesser gods and enchanters for praise and amazement, prayers said only in defense of the all-controlling Senate. Immortality is the fairy-tale of horrific monsters at sea. But for the vampires, the unveiling of the only surviving copy of the Holy Bible holds a greater revelation than what was meant. Follow the journey of Aramis Faro, a common man, who travels upon both sides of the coin, finding his way between the light and the dark while dodging not only the powers that be, but the prophecies that shall.
