"Great vampire romance"

"Julian" - Senior vampire, Julian Cavanaugh has not tasted human blood in three hundred years. He attends the annual Halloween bash also frequented by Lorelei Fletcher. A vampire attacks Lorelei, but Julian rescues her. Julian knows he is evolving into something beyond his species, but only can complete the metamorphosis with Lorelei by his side.

"Nicholas" - Nicholas Carrington escorts mortal Dina Winters to the vampire gala, but cannot resist her lure and bites her neck. When Dina awakens, Nicky tells her she is dying but surprises her that he knows of her illness. Nicky plans to stay by Dina until the end, praying that "elders" can save her life.

"Lucien" - The vampires gather to hear Lucien tell his biography of twelve thousand years of "life". He explains that four women mated with Gods resulting in four demon births. The foursome each begot children carrying a special gene like Lorelei has and created the vampire race.

"Lorelei" - Julian worries that Lorelei is unhappy with him though they love one another. She learns that she is pregnant. Since a vampire cannot sire a child, Julian jealously wants to know who the father is. Lorelei is hurt and Julian is stunned when he realizes he is the dad, but he has no time to rejoice because war is imminent.

All four tales that make up THE VAMPIRE APOCALYPSE Book One. Revelations are well written, exciting and can stand alone yet leave a cliffhanger feel to the cross anthology plot.

Fans of vampire stories have a winner as Katriena Knights provides a wonderfully insightful story line with realistic characters that make the supernatural world seem real.
