Overview
A woman's quest for the truth...A medieval icon that holds the clues...And an ancient book with the power to shake Christianity-and humanity itself.

London tour guide Caroline Clifford has never believe in vampires- until her uncle is brutally murdered at a Bulgarian archaeological site, and a vampire hunter who corresponded with him seeks her out.

Strange anagrams on her uncle's passport lead them to a cliff-top monastery in Greece, where a shattering revelation connects a relic Caro inherited to an age-old text on immortality-and an enigmatic prophecy that pits the forces of darkness and light in a showdown that could destroy all they know...

A young woman is thrust into the secret world of vampires in this clichéd supernatural thriller, first in a proposed series. When Caroline “Caro” Clifford’s Uncle Nigel is murdered, she travels to Bulgaria and ends up on the run with biochemist and soi-disant vampire expert Jude Barrett. The vamps chasing them work for Harry Wilkerson, CEO of a major pharmaceutical company, who hopes to learn and capitalize on the secret of vampiric immortality. Wilkerson is also Caro’s long-lost father, and he believes she knows the location of pages Caro’s mother stole from a suppressed Gnostic gospel about vampires. To find the pages, Caro and Jude must decode clues left by Nigel while evading Wilkerson’s forces—but their growing romance is complicated when they learn Caro may be a part-vampire and implicated in an ancient vampire prophecy. The predictable twists add unfortunate drag to this roller-coaster ride. (Dec.)
