Vlad V the vampire warned Cat that when you're rich, the stakes are much higher, and that she might have to do appalling things to survive. Cat thought she'd have to deal with unscrupulous lawyers, greedy financiers and bankers, Wall Street shysters, corrupt politicians, devious conmen, and depraved socialites. Instead, an old nemesis allied with a vampire-slayer drug cult came out of the dark, demanding extortion money or she would be killed. Capturing a vampire -Vlad V perhaps- would be an added bonus for the cult. Blue vampire blood could provide perpetual life and additional riches. Unfortunately, the villains don't know who or what they are dealing with. Never upset the great-granddaughter of Vlad V and Angelique, her vampire friend, if you want to stay healthy and alive.
In the year of Satan, 2066, the structure of the physical world is cracking, and inexplicable paranormal forces are interfering with humanity. The Trinity Investigation Organization, or TIO -a paranormal detective society- is the last protection against the demons, evil spirits, fanatical criminals, and sadists who are trying to destroy the world.
The 92-year-old Pope is pregnant. Although he hasn't undergone any medical procedures, he carries a human fetus in his abdomen. Is this a case of self-cloning, or is it a mutation? Is this an immaculate conception, or is it Satan's work?
Claire, Travis, and Prescott, the members of the Capuchin Trinity Team of TIO, are tasked with uncovering the truth about this unusual case and resolving the mystery of whether the Pope is carrying the new Messiah or the Antichrist, and who did it. Their job is to go beyond the physical world into the mind and the spiritual realm, discover a thousand-year-old connection, perform an exorcism, and fight the devil Zepar, while evading the villains who keep trying to assassinate them.
The US intelligence agencies have a massive database, including pictures that can identify any person in the US and abroad. A search has found a photograph of Vlad V Draculesti, a man living in present-day Manhattan, dating from 1851. How can that be? Why does Vlad look the same in the 21st century as he did in the 19th? Who is this man who has lived such a long life?
Homeland Security Federal Agent John Miller discovers that Vlad V Draculesti is a vampire, and he blackmails Vlad for billions of dollars, threatening to divulge that information to the authorities or to the evil Dr. Hellinherr, who is trying to create a super-race of people through the use of vampire blood.
But Vlad V, because of a mishap, is now dying of old age, and all he wants is to die in peace. Cat Sanders, his great-granddaughter, and his three vampire friends -Francois, Angelique, and Mundibuto- come to his rescue. They foil the intelligence agencies' plans to discover the real identity of Vlad V Draculesti, and they eliminate the corrupt federal agent's threat. Never underestimate a vampire, his cunning great-granddaughter and his vampire friends.
Meeting a vampire isn't something that happens every night, even
New York City subway. But never in her wildest dreams did Cat ever
meet a vampire or survive an encounter with one. Instead, she became his
confidant. Why was she so lucky?
Experiencing a new reality is just a paper-fold away for Mike the
insurance salesman. The problem is, he never knows which "where-when"
he'll experience. Being crucified, or being gassed at Auschwitz, or
space in a Russian capsule? The bigger problem is, he cannot control
gets back to normal reality, if there is such thing as normal reality.
An experiment causes four young Americans, Nathan, Perry, Melissa,
Michelle to appear in a strange and desolate world. Trees as large as
mountains, scattered across the land like oases, support all life, safe
the monsters that patrol the night fog on the ground. Races of people
medieval societies populate the giant trees. Known as the Lorns in this
particular tree, they welcome the four kids into their world - until
Hellferata, the evil spirit descendent of Medusa, intrudes upon their
tree, and sends Dracu Mort to kill one of the heroes.
