Throw away your crucifix, for it will not protect you, not in this chillingly original take on the vampire legend. It’s a tale of bloody revenge that will expose the modern day workings of the Vampire Clans, and their constant war with those that would hunt them to extinction. A story that explains away the myths handed down through centuries of ignorance that keeps us from believing the horrifying truth about the real vampire’s living among us today.
It is the winter of 1362 in what was then a small Lithuanian farming village on the edge of the Capathian Mountains. A man and a child lay dead, their throats savagely ripped open and their bodies drained of blood. The man’s pregnant wife on hearing the news goes into premature labor, giving birth to an underdeveloped baby boy. The infant is not expected to live, and the mother remains weak and sickly. The attending midwives leave the two of them alone to share what precious moments they have left together.
The creature responsible for the attacks is an injured vampire being chased through the nearby forest by a band of determined Hunters. In its need for blood to replenish its strength the vampire doubles back, losing the Hunters in the process. It re-enters the village hidden from sight by the raging storm and the dark of night. It breaks into one of the small homes and feeds on the defenseless mother as she clutches her newborn baby protectively to her breast. In the course of his savage feeding the vampire unknowingly allows some of his own blood and that of the mothers to spill into the infant’s mouth. The blood feeds and nurtures the underdeveloped infant and turning him into something very, very different. This horrific act will set in motion a series of events that will leave a trail of death and destruction across seven century’s and three continents, before it finally concludes in the new lands of America.
Modern day America, a land where humans believe vampires to be nothing more than literary and cinematic tales of tall, dark, sexy, men or women. Creatures that will turn to dust in sunlight, fear the crucifix and burn at the touch of holy water. It’s a land where people are blissfully ignorant of the truth behind these tales and legends. It’s a land where vampires enjoy hunting their ignorant prey, as much as they enjoy the company of their all too willing human companions. It’s also a land of relocated ancient secret societies, of well trained and well equipped Hunters, those who would seek out and slay the dreaded vampires they know are living among us.
Now it’s also the land of The Unsired, the one who was never meant to be, an outcast, a miracle, a freak of nature. A heroic savior to some, and a deadly assassin to others. One who would be hunted and feared by humans for his vampiric traits, as he himself hunts the vampire responsible for his cursed and lonely existence. His quest for vengeance will bring him into contact with the vampires and those that willingly serve them, their unwilling prey, and those that hunt them. Those that come to know him, will have their lives changed forever… but only if he lets them live.
