Overview

A man of science and reason, Dr. John Eliot eagerly joined a top-secret mission to far-off Kilikshutra, to investigate a mysterious epidemic. He returned to London plagued by memories of a horrific disease that decimates body and soul...and shaken by its shrouded ties to vampire lore. But when an old friend goes missing, Eliot searches the city's dark underbelly -- and finds his exotic, dangerous journey has only just begun...

Accompanied by Bram Stoker -- whose observations would emerge inhis immortal novel, Dracula -- Eliot encounters an irresistible temptation among the denizens of the night: the ravishing seductress Lilah. Gleaming with icy beauty, she will not rest until she has coaxed Eliot's most monstrous impulses into the open...and unleashed them on an unsuspecting London.

    Intelligently written vampire story

    Professor Holland's text is a fantastic mystery Vampire novel. Bram Stoker is Dr. Watson to the hyper intelligent Dr. Eliot. What a scary story, written in letters and narratives I found the book shocking and intellectual curious. The scene in India!!!!

    A Ricean Epic

    Understand that Tom Holland is the greatest male vampire author alive. In the style of Anne Rice's bestselling Vampire Chronicles, Holland has continued his saga of historic vampires in this lavish second work. Historically accurate with artistic license, captivating from the outset, and constantly building to a shocking ending, this is a page turner all Rice fans should read.

    Another Hit

    Holland has done it again. Though I thought that the book started out a bit slow, it quickly became interesting as he took me into early 1900 India and the world of Vampirism and more from that part of the world. As with his first effort, the story takes the reader back to London and its dark and damp crevices along the seaports of the Thames. It makes the reader want to go to London and find these areas of the city he writes about.
