Lilith is Queen of the Vampires, an ancient goddess whose beginning goes back to the very creation of mankind. And after centuries of slumber inside a subterranean palace near Cairo, she's awake and she's hungry. But the world as she knew it is very different: automobiles, cell phones, electricity, airplanes, and towering skyscrapers are all beyond her comprehension. When she is caught feeding, she is shot at by police and narrowly escapes with her life. After stowing away on a freighter bound for America, Lilith reaches New York City and starts her search for other vampires so that she can begin to rebuild her empire.
Meanwhile, undercover vampire killer Paul Ward and his wife are trying to raise Paul's son, Ian, whose real mother was a powerful vampire. Although Ian has no idea about his lineage, or his father's job, his boring teenage existence gets really exciting when he meets Lilith!
Whitley Strieber's previous modern-day horror novels, The Wolfen and The Hunger, were both bestsellers that were eventually made into movies. Lilith's Dream has the same cinematic ingredients -- it's dark and sexy, thrilling and terrifying. Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake novels, and vampire fiction in general, will love this book. Paul Goat Allen
