Overview

Three vampyrs. Three lives. Three intertwining stories.

Bearing the guilt of destroying the holiest of books, after becoming a vampyr, the Dragon, Lord Desmond searches the world for lost knowledge, but instead, discovers truth in love.

Born a slave in Ancient Greece, Alexandra craves freedom above all else, until a vampyr sets her free, but then, she must pay the highest price of all . . . her human soul.

An assassin who lives in the shadows, Roquelaure is cloaked even from himself, until he discovers the power of friendship and loyalty.

Three vampyrs, traveling the world by moonlight-one woman and two men who forge a bond made in love and blood. Together they form a band of mercenaries called the Scarlet Order, and recruit others who are like them. Their mission is to protect kings and emperors against marauders, invaders, rogue vampyrs, and their ultimate nemesis-Vlad the Impaler.

This is not your daughter’s vampire story: the vampires kill, have sex and the woman doesn’t have to choose— she gets both lovers. Hooray! I’m not a fan of vampires, but I know a lot of their lore because my husband enjoys vampire stories. David Lee Summers’ vampires are more in line with what I think of as “normal” vampires, but he does put in his own twists, which I like. They aren’t souless killing monsters. Some of them remember life before they were turned and keep some of their morals and ethics from their human life. Some of the vampires completely forget who they were before they were turned and either go crazy, or find a path to sanity. The main characters are smart and build a life for themselves whether it’s mercenary or thief or assassin or setting themselves up as nobility. Parts of the book remind me of The Robe, other parts of the Davinci Code and some parts are pure David Lee Summers having fun with thoughts of an immortal life. The story runs parallel to many historical happenings and I enjoy the story line where vampires are seeking holy relics for their own enrichment instead of to destroy them. The one place I wanted more was emotional depth in the characters. As soon as I started to get connected to one of the characters, David would pull back. If he writes another book in the series, and I hope he does, I’d like to wallow a little more in their desires and sorrows. I recommend this book to anyone who likes alternative history stories and vampire stories. It’s not a kids book—adults only :)
