A pale, cloaked and hooded immigrant with haunting amber eyes wanders into the backcountry of 1755 Pennsylvania. Her name is Rebecca. Her curse is a rare genetic disorder, responsible for all the world's legends of the Nosferatu, the Wampyr...the Vampire. Burned by sunlight, driven by a hellish need to drink human blood, possessing superhuman strength and senses, Rebecca must live in the shadows, but never in darkness, for she is a believer in Jesus Christ. Forced to flee her native Wales, to America she has journeyed, seeking Sanctuary and a new life where her secret is not known. This new life will bring her many friends, fiendish enemies and the love of a Mohawk husband when Rebecca accepts captivity to free a thirteen-year-old colonial girl. But as the French set La Guerre Sauvage, astir in the backcountry with death and destruction in its wake, threatening everyone Rebecca loves, only a Vampire can stop them, even if she must pay the ultimate price.

About the Author
A native of Southeast Alabama now at home in Phoenix, Arizona, H.G. Ferguson has always loved the strange, the unnerving, the unusual -- in short, looking at things, particularly monsters, outside the box. A connoisseur of classic horror both literary and cinematic, he floods his writing with originality, creativity and power. Since the whopping age of six he has known Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and seeks above all things to honor Him and present the Truth -- even Truth shrouded in shadows, like a candle flickering in a mortuary window.

New Blood: Book 1 of The Calling Of The Blood based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
If you look at New Blood by H.G. Ferguson and think, “A Christian vampire? Not possible”, I know exactly what you mean. When I first picked up this book, I thought, “Another story of vampire-like urges overcome by a salvation scene.” New Blood is NOT that kind of book. From the first page to the last in Book 1 of “The Calling of the Blood”, Ferguson encapsulates the reader in the culture, beliefs, and characters of 1755 Pennsylvania. The language, accents, and slang terms used remain true to the era, and his descriptions flow like paint from an artist’s brush. This book is not just a Twilight-parody in another time; this book is truly about an infirmity borne with the grace and love of God. This book is about justice and mercy, vengeance and forgiveness, and dying to oneself and living for others. The connection between the main character and her granddaughter is poignant and intimate, and you know there is a story behind it that you desperately want to know. Join Rebecca as she seeks what we all seek: to be accepted for who we are, not for what we do. Follow her as she searches for a place to call home, a sanctuary. You won’t be disappointed.
