From the Publisher

Abandoned in the Egyptian desert to die an infidel's death, mortally wounded Templar Knight Edwin Blutleer is rescued by an inhuman succubus.

When his Templar comrades return to collect his corpse, they are stunned to find Blutleer alive, healed, and enraged. They betrayed the Templar Code: never leave a wounded brother behind. And he slaughters them to a man -- except one, who escapes. He is Blutleer's own cousin Pierre DeVeze.

For 600 years, the immortal vampire Edwin Blutleer hunts and destroys the survivor's offspring and their heirs. Several generations change surnames and delay Blutleer, but he cannot be stopped.

Now it is 1888, and Blutleer locates the last heirs, Vicar Peter Willington, and his two small sons. Challenging both a God he felt had deserted him as had his friends and comrades under the Egyptian sun 600 years earlier, Blutleer uses the Vicar’s religious beliefs against him, convincing Willington he loves another woman, that his God will turn his back on the Vicar should he consummate his affections.

However, the wife and mother of those survivors, the beautiful Amanda Penderfield Willington, is entranced, and Turned by Blutleer. For the third time in his 600-year existence of living death, he succumbs to love for a Penderfield woman.

Nevertheless, Blutleer remains determined to destroy the last DeVeze heirs on Easter Sunday, but will his love for Amanda stop him? Will the Vicar’s God step and prevent catastrophe? Or will Blutleer kill them all?
