A Novel of Dark Discoveries


It all started when the gypsy fortune-teller looked him in the eye—and ran away, screaming.

Michael was a teacher at a prep school in Cambridge. Barely thirty, he felt immensely old. He was tired of his life, tired of his job, tired of dreary England. And though he didn't know it yet—tired of Sophie and her safe, undemanding love.

So Michael took a sabbatical and went to Romania, hoping to claim the property his grandparents had abandoned after World War II. He found he was a titled lord, and more—the owner of an ancient stronghold in the Transylvanian Alps, Castel Vlaicu.

Thus Michael Feraru became Count Mihai Vlahuta. It was all a lark; or at most, an adventure.

Until the gypsy recognized him—or some­thing about him—in the streets of Bucharest. Until he picked up the doll. And of course, the girl—the unexpected, unexplainable, irre­sistible dark-eyed girl.

At Castel Vlaicu, Michael was to learn of an evil older than time, an evil that reached back to the very origins of his shattered fam­ily—and into his own dark future.

He was to learn the secret of the strigoï. The undead. Not vampires. Something far, far worse. And far more seductive....

The Lost is a novel of dark discoveries, of a man who loses his soul, and more, in the search for his secret destiny. It is story of pas­sion and horror, and of the doomed love that links the two.

The Lost will leave you shaken by your encounter with an ancient darkness.

If it leaves you at all.
