Greg Wilkey is, in the words of Anne Rice ("Interview with the Vampire," et al) "."..a writer to watch."" This Omnibus Edition contains the first four books in his suspenseful "The Life and Undeath of Mortimer Drake" series. With introductions from other esteemed authors including Becket, K.L. Bone, Sarah M. Cradit, Sumiko Saulson, and an honorary member of the Talamasca, Granny Goodwitch, this book is the perfect starting point for new fans of Greg's work and for old fans alike.
Includes the following unabridged books, as well as a 'behind the stories' story from Greg himself:
"Growing Up Dead" Mortimer Drake discovers that he is the product of a supernatural mixed-marriage. His life is completely turned upside down as he struggles with this knowledge and his emerging vampiric nature.
"Out of the Underworld" Mortimer Drake and his family continue to work towards a new understanding of how to survive as a supernatural family living in the mortal world while welcoming a baby sister. A new battle in the war among the Undead begins as the Mother and Queen of the vampire race is discovered.
"Hope Against Hope" The world has changed for the living and the undead alike. Mortimer Drake and his family have been forced underground in the wake of the Dark Revelation. HOPE promises to restore peace, safety, and security, but that promise comes with a heavy price...
"Star Blood" For the first time in recorded history, humans live side by side with the creatures of myths and legends to build a new life fueled by optimism. Mortimer and his friends must now face a new enemy from somewhere beyond the stars that threatens to end all life on the planet.
Praise for Greg Wilkey's books:
"Greg Wilkey has a real knack for getting into the heads of his young protagonists. Mortimer Drake is a young man coming of age in the face of unnerving supernatural revelations." - Sumiko Saulson, author of "Happiness and Other Diseases"
..".the cosmology (Wilkey) creates is so involved, so wonderfully complex, the reader cannot help but become utterly immersed in the narrative, in the descriptions, in the characters, and in the plots." - Becket, author of the "Steampunk Sorcery Series (Key the Steampunk Vampire Girl)"
