Tales like "The Raven" will take you back to the very earliest days of the world's greatest killing machine -- long before she became a vampire -- when she was a little half-breed girl named Ael living in a nation long since forgotten by history... but still far more dangerous than her family could have imagined.
In a tie-in to Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll's "Reawakening" tale, you'll visit medieval Rome, which is held within the iron fist of the Guardian, a self-appointed "benevolent" dictator who viciously crushes all those who oppose him... and whose identity may surprise you! It's up to Raven to free the terrified ancient city from the Guardian's grasp, but not only is he NOT going to let go willingly, but...
He's the one guy who can go toe-to-toe with Raven -- and win.
But the Guardian isn't the only formidable foe Raven faces. The diminutive vampiress prides herself on the fact that there's nothing she can't kill, but can she even kill an IDEA? That's the problem facing her when she comes face-to-face with the living personification of murder in the bloody, brutal philosophy of "Faces Of Murder!"
Your journey through the legends of the Raven take you everywhere from the 1960's to Death's cold embrace itself, fusing vampire fiction with hard-edged action, twisting philosophical musings, and a healthy dose of humor. Far from the usual nihilistic, fatalistic, and unlovable immortal powerhouses you usually encounter, Raven laughs, spews HORRIBLE poetry, and has an outright playful look on life, but...
When it comes down to business, she deals out death with the best of them -- her fangs, twin daggers, and relentless strength have made her a legend in cultures worldwide for very good reason.
Just take care that if you worship her, you be sure to stay true to her spirit -- in the exclusive "Who Made Who" tale, the self-styled Cult of the Raven receives the rare privilege of meeting their object of worship... but it doesn't go quite as planned!
There's no angst here. No romance. No tragic musings. Just blood-pumping excitement, unbound exhilaration, and a sense of fun unlike anything you've ever encountered... not to mention your GUARANTEED daily dose of death in each and every tale!
With this book, you'll be thrilling to the following tales...
Facing The Monster
Faces Of Murder
Who Made Who
It's been said that with courage and heart, immortality can be the greatest adventure you'll ever have -- Raven proves it.
You want blood? You got it.
