Overview

The Dark King approaches...

The Dictator of Humanity prepares for war...

A Revolution arises...

The Falsifier uncovers his destiny...

And the Prophet reveals his secrets.

On Earth, the clandestine vampire Elder Council summons a great man to awaken a primordial evil locked in the abyss of Antarctica.

As humanity prepares for the War of Vengeance, Alex learns to harness his powers while trying to make amends with his estranged lover and get in touch with his comatose grandmother so that she may reveal the secrets of her subconscious mind. But the power he wields links him directly to the Dark King who haunts his dreams and tempts him to join the Red Serpent. As Alex fights off these tests, he learns from his father the keys to survival and the truths that will help him fulfill his ancient destiny.

But it all depends on whether or not Alex survives the terrorist revolution, brought about by a secret society known as the Founding Fathers.

About the Author

Delson Armstrong is an avid science fiction reader and is particularly fascinated with the archetype of the vampire. He admits that the fuel for writing this series comes from that very fascination, which in turn grew out of an almost pathological fear of vampires, after reading a book on them as a child. Delson travels most of the time, between New York and Bombay and continues to write the next book in the Red Serpent series while contemplating and outlining several offshoots of this particular universe.

This is part 2 of a projected 14-book far future science fiction epic. It is all about humanity fighting to return to Earth from which they were exiled by a race of humanoid vampires.In part 1, mankind, living on a giant space station in orbit, fought a major battle against the vampires, and was victorious. Also, Alexander Howe, grandson of John Howe, newly-appointed dictator of humanity, learned that he is The Falsifier, the long-prophesied savior who will defeat the vampires, once and for all.In this novel, both sides are making all-out preparations for the war that everyone knows is coming. Humanity's priprity is to build an immense energy weapon on the Moon that will destroy any and all ships that the vampires can launch against them. They are also creating enough room under the Moon's surface to hold all the people, because they know that when the vampires attack, the space station, called the Regnum, will be the first target. Humanity is also building thousands of ships, and gathering an army in the millions. The vampires are not standing still, either. Their top-priority plan invloves creating thousands of genetically-modified werewolves.Meantime, Alex is learning more about his destiny as The Falsifier. He has gained the power to bring the dead back to life, which he uses more than he should. He watches disks left by his father, who died the day Alex was born; disks which tell Alex a lot more about where he actually came from. Part of the prophecy says that Alex is supposed to die three times, and be brought back to life three different ways, one of which has already happened. Alex also learns things about himself from communicating with his grandmother, in a hospital in an irreversible coma.The human attack catches the vampires off guard. It turns into one of those grand space opera battles, full of beam weapons, energy shields and sword fights.This is more of a politics and revealing of secrets type of novel, and the author does a fine job at it. It touches on themes like cultural intolerance, it's interesting and is very much worth reading.
