Overview


The Earth is dying. Humanity — over-breeding, over-consuming — is destroying the very planet they call home.

Overview


The Earth is dying. Humanity — over-breeding, over-consuming — is destroying the very planet they call home. Multinational corporations despoil the environment, market genetically modified crops to control the food supply, and use their wealth and influence and private armies to crush anything, and anyone, that gets in the way of their profits. Nothing human can stop them. But something unhuman might. Once they did not fear the sun. Once they could breathe the air and sleep where they chose. But now they can rest only within the uncontaminated soil of Mother Earth—and the time has come for them to fight back against the ruthless corporations that threaten their immortal existence.

They are the last guardians of paradise, more than human but less than angels. They call themselves the Arcadians. We know them as vampires. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Prime Earth activist Silas is betrayed in a disastrous, deadly fire aboard a whaling protest ship and exiled from the Grove, a hive mind of the vampire-like Arcadians. These guardians of Earth head-scratchingly subsist on a mixed diet of blood and organic foods, including chia and wheatgrass juice. When Silas realizes the fire was planned by a multinational corporation in order to test an anti-Arcadian weapon, he visits the vampire spa on Easter Island to seek answers, only to discover that the conspiracy has unexpected origins. The story is light on characterization and logic and heavy on melodrama and scenery chewing, and it most palpably lacks the self-awareness that would elevate it to the level of satire. But if there are ecowarriors eager for an Earth-friendly vampire novel, this action-packed conspiracy thriller proclaiming the evils of genetic engineering will suit them just fine. (Jan.)
