Lord of the dead the secret history of Byronby Tom Holland, Richard E. Grant
The famed nineteenth-century poet and rake, Lord Byron, comes to life in a searing blend of fact and fiction, a shockingly brilliant novel with all the hypnotic power of Caleb Carr's The Alienist and the best of Anne Rice. Tom Holland, acclaimed author of Slave of My Thirst, made an astonishing literary debut with this mesmerizing tale.
Traveling in the mountains of Greece, Byron falls under the spell of a mysterious fugitive slave, whose pale, slim body arouses his lust. Utterly entranced, his fate is sealed. The supreme sensualist embarks on a life of adventure -- that of the world's most formidable vampire.
Chosen to enjoy powers beyond those any vampire has ever known, Byron enters a dark, intoxicating world of long-lost secrets, ancient arts, and scorching excesses of evil. He drinks deeply of terror and sex. But his diversions, delicious and cruel, are also his torment: an all-consuming thirst damning all those he loves...
