A vampire that works for the Vatican...
Marcus Victor Amfortas is a vampire with a problem. After an innocent girl sacrificed herself for him, he cannot give in to his thirst. He can no longer bring himself to feed on humans. Secluding himself was not enough - he has an overwhelming need to make amends for his existence and the evil he has done.
The Vatican has a problem. It must protect the innocent from hundreds of tainted artifacts in its possession. These relics are each corrupted by evil and the acts of mankind. As a result, they are craved by the living horrors that must possess them. Worse still, the artifacts themselves offer seductions to the most pious of holy men.
An uneasy alliance was formed: Keep the artifacts sequestered, and the Vatican will give Marcus absolution upon his death.
Now, a hundred years later, a cynical and sarcastic Marcus keeps his vow sacred. He is fighting to keep his most vile artifact from a powerful wizard, fighting to keep his life from a vengeful demon, and fighting for his only chance at redemption through this new, politically conscious church.
Debut author Chad Bednar has crafted a sublime supernatural thriller-- a clash of underworld and overworld, of the sacred and the profane, fought out on our earthly battlefield by richly drawn characters amid superb action."
