    Vampire's unlike any before!

    In the beginning under the alliance of the Spanish Inquisition there was a group of Vampire mercenaries known as the Scarlet Order. They were used as soldiers to bring down the Ottoman Empire and any other enemy the Pope of that time period deemed necessary. The master vampire Lord Draco is the Knight Commander of The Scarlet Order, he and his team of vampires carry out the tasks laid before them. But after three centuries of working for the Inquisition, the newest Pope Pius VII decided it was time to break the alliance because these vampires were demons and have been draining the Church¿s funds for far too long. The Scarlet Order vampires each went a new way for centuries they would not have contact¿until someone begins trying to form a new breed of vampires. Marcella, Mercedes ¿Mercy¿, Jane, Daniel, Drake, Rudolfo and a few other secondary vampires must team together to stop whoever is trying to make a new breed of super-soldier vampires. If too many of these creatures are created and must live on blood, eventually the humans will disappear leaving the vampires without sustenance causing them to die out completely from starvation. With the help of the Manitou that appear in oversized forms of a Spider, Beaver, and Coyote the small group of the new warrior vampires learn there are more secrets that have yet been untold. David Lee Summers¿ novel Vampires of the Scarlet Order is has a new take on vampires like none that I have ever read. It intermingles stories from history, to present day in the form of diary, journal or notes written by the vampires. I must admit Marcella¿s story about Billy the Kid was my very favorite vampire ¿beginning.¿ Vampires of the Scarlet Order has a little bit of everything for every paranormal reader to enjoy, science, astronomy, war, love, and even the occasional lusty bite. Mr. Summers is an extraordinary writer and with this novel he defiantly delivers a tale that is near impossible to put down. 5 Hearts

    vampires as mercenaries

    Taking advantage of the unique powers and abilities of vampires, over the centuries an elite corps of vampires have operated as assassins. Now, at the start of the twenty-first century, vampires are too expensive and too much trouble for governments to hire them anymore. This is the premise in a truly fresh tale about vampires. The story spans a time period over eight hundred years, but the climax of the story takes place in New Mexico. Here, the government has changed its tactics and now wants super soldiers made from technology, rather than vampires, to do its dirty deeds. What is a vampire to do?
