More About This Book

Overview

The chalice, a sacred relic of the Great Hive, created by the Hive Queen and containing her Blood, is in the hands of the feared and hated Cadmus Pariah. It's up to Queen Kelat and her chosen champions to try to retrieve the chalice before Cadmus uses it to destroy all Vampires and enslave humanity. In a series of cyclic interludes we meet the main players in the story as it builds to the climax where Kelat and Cadmus come face to face with the chalice between them.

The Chalice is the first book in The Vampire Relics Trilogy: For as long as Vampires have walked the Earth, there has been an obsession to mortate, to leave the Vampire world behind and be human again.

Legends say there are relics: a crown, a chalice, and an augury; which when combined will cure the curse of blood lust. Legends tell also of ancient teachers, of deadly alliances, and twisted advantages.
Welcome to the world of the Vampire Relics, where humanity moves blindly along the rim of time, and an immortal battle rages over history lost and history yet to be made.

    A Book Worth Re-Reading!!

    I want to be completely honest. I was very leery about this book. I am not a fan of Vampire fiction. But this book interested me because it wove the legends of The Holy Grail, Magic and Vampires together. And Ms. Evans does this seamlessly and eloquently. She weaves her story in an entrancing fashion making the book difficult to put down and leaving the reader with the desire to know more. In Cadmus Pariah she creates an character with depth and subtly who elicits a range of emotions from the reader. Whether you see him as the evil antagonist or just a misguided chylde, you can not be indifferent to him!

    Simply beautiful

    While it's a different style of prose, Tracy Evans' tale of vampires flows with a beauty that is missing in most vampire fic of today, and indeed most modern fiction. The description she paints brings forth the most beautiful imagery, which is sorely lacking in paranormal literature today.

    I yearn to learn more of the wondrous creatures that inhabit her universe, I suppose I will have to simply be patient to see the second and third book of the series.
