Each May, the Central California town of Kingsburg celebrates its Swedish heritage with the annual Swedish Festival. The town with a population of over 11,000 residents draws thousands more to the event. This year, two uninvited guests also converged upon the unsuspecting town.
Nathaniel is a vampire. He wandered into town, bothering no one; feeding upon stray cats and other vermin, wanting nothing more than to have a place to rest his head. Vincent is a second vampire, and the one responsible for making Nathaniel. He has been searching for his long lost "son" for well over two centuries. Vincent's goal is to take Nathaniel home or kill him. Nathaniel has often wished for death, wondering why God ever allowed this punishment: to walk the earth undead and unable to be redeemed. Does God remember the little boy from Romania who watched his parents die, was raised by the murdering vampire, only to become one himself? What does God think of Nathaniel and could there yet be redemption for one outside of heaven?
Ten days before the start of the Swedish Festival the most tumultuous week in the history of Kingsburg has begun with two vampires leaving death and destruction in their wake. Kingsburg Police Detectives Mark Jackson and Michael Lopez, Barbara and the entire Lopez family find themselves drawn into something that threatens to destroy them all or leave them scarred forever.
In a marriage of the classic horror story and the Christian themes of good conquering evil and redemption, Dance on Fire is the account of characters being drawn into the fire and the supernatural forces around them watching as they burn.

A unique and interesting twist to vampire mythology. Well-written story about Nathaniel, a vampire seeking redemption and Vincent, his maker and force to be reckoned with. A classic good vs. evil tale with richly developed characters and a complex plot. If you like crime stories with a touch of mystery, horror and the paranormal, this book will hit the spot.
I never thought I would describe a vampire novel as 'cozy', but that's what this novel is in many instances, and it's because Mr. Garcia has crafted such wonderful small-town characters. This is a tale of small-town meets big, unimaginable evil, complete with Christian themes and an honest, loving relationship between a husband and wife. Combine that with two vampires, one bad, one struggling to be good, who vie for the interests of the town and the people within, and you have one great tale that will keep you reading and guessing until the end.
