Overview

On the holiday Sicilians call Giorno dei Morti - "The Day of the Dead" - Attilio Augusta meets a beautiful woman while paying his respects in a crypt. She is the same woman he once met in that crypt as a young boy. She hasn't aged a day.

Soon Attilio is making love with this woman.

Soon, he is fighting to save himself from the jaws of a ravenous monster.

In Chicago, crime lord Alphonse Capone is introduced to a new mobster in town. A man who, unthinkably, demands a share of Capone's empire. A man who was once called Attilio Augusta. A man who is no longer merely human.

Blood Society follows the career of an undying mafioso from Chicago in the 1920s to Boston in the 1990s. Along his blood-splattered path he will face traitorous comrades, a dangerously obsessed priest, the same volatile woman who turned him so many years before, and ultimately an enemy band of gangsters who are beings like himself...

Beings that cross at will into a mysterious alternate world. Beings that transform into hideous creatures impervious to bullets, knives and bombs...

Creatures with a thirst for money, power and...blood.

Blood Society is an epic supernatural horror novel by Jeffrey Thomas, author of the cult classics Letters From Hades and Punktown.

Editorial Reviews

BookSpotCentral.com - Douglas Cobb
Thomas, who has also written gems like the cult classics Letters From Hades and Punktown, combines this history of Capone and other gangsters with an original, chilling take on the vampire mythos, and the result is a page-turning, highly entertaining novel that all horror fans will enjoy reading. Blood Society is easily one of the best modern-day vampire novels ever written, and it deserves a spot in any horror fan’s library.

    Al Capone meets Raziel (LEGEND OF KAIN: SOUL REAVER). Historical

    Al Capone meets Raziel (LEGEND OF KAIN: SOUL REAVER). Historically accurate to the detail and the characters are well-fleshed out. It is hard to find a unique vampire story of late, but BLOOD SOCIETY is just that. A fresh spin on vampires and the supernatural in general (and no they don't sparkle!). One of the most intriguing aspects of this story is the amount of metaphysical spec that Mr. Thomas puts into it. For anyone that has enjoyed the alter reality of games such as SOUL REAVER and SILENT HILL, this is a real treat. For the historian, the Part I is incredibly accurate down to the first recorded drive-by shooting that made Hymie Weiss so popular in his heyday before Capone's chopper squads finally got to him.

    On the literary side, the book is very well written both grammatically and in terms of pacing. Great dialogue, a plot that maintains momentum and interest, and a once-cliche theme becomes so twisted in Jeffrey Thomas's hands that it lures you in like a meat market train wreck. He makes an already vile concept very disturbing at times. Without spoiling, one of my favorite themes is that of circus romance embraced with true Jeffrey Thomas flair between his horrendous Two-Face mobster and a most unlikely bride. Well worth the read!

    Classy, cool horror

    Very very COOL novel. Highly recommended. From the sicilian catacombs to Capone-era Chicago, follow a very original vampire from the early 1900s Sicilian catacombs to Capone-era Chicago to modern-day run-ins with demonic Asian gangs. Violent, sexy, elegant horror, and like I said, just a very COOL read.
