    Mortal Companion by Patrick Califa

    Mortal Companion is the story of the vampire Ulric Jäger, born in 1339 and turned into a vampire by a Christian crusader. Immortality has come at the price of a deep and abiding loneliness. Vampires can't tolerate one another's presence. The only person who shares Ulric memories is his half sister, Adulfa Jäger. Unfortunately, Adulfa has spent all those centuries sharpening hatred for Ulric, for it was he who made her a vampire.

    Ulric has finally found a soul mate--a woman who loves him despite being a killer vampire. Lilith, née Mary Beth Wolcott, not only loves Ulric, but their passion is heightened by the fact that she refuses to accept becoming a vampire. If Lilith becomes a vampire herself, she would have to abandon Ulric to find her own hunting ground. Lilith and Ulric begin a journey to San Francisco and to Ulric's past. Lilith learns how Ulric was the victim of the Germanic Knights of the Sepulcher. He was made a vampire by rape of the mind, body, and soul. This horrific beginning culminated in the rape and a feeding from Adulfa, Ulric's own half-sister.

    So Adulfa not only seeks vengeance from Ulric for making her a vampire, but also for raising a piece of prey--Lilith--to the status of his peer. Adulfa is more then just a vampire. She began life as a shapeshifter. She is a reckless woman bent on seeking pleasure through domination of the body and mind. She has been planning her revenge against Ulric for hundreds of years and nothing will stop her. Lilith is her ticket to making Ulric pay for violating her.

    Lilith and Ulric are aware of Adulfa's rage, but are so caught up within their insulated world they have a false sense of security. Ulric introduces Lilith to the BDSM community and a sex slave is born. Lilith gives herself over completely to Ulric. This trust is pivotal in what is to come.

    The book is not for the easily offended or those who are not comfortable with explicit sex. Patrick Califia has created a world where everything is possible and nothing is taboo. The book contains homosexual scenes and lots of S/M, which is good if that is what you are looking for. But everything was written quite poorly. The book is bad porn trying to masquerade itself as a vampire book. The writing and dialogue are very plain--like a mix between a soap opera and a porn script. The plot is almost nob existent and the sex scenes are silly. I was unable to finish the book.
