Chris Defazio - A History in Blood
Sometimes being a vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be.
"Think paranormal literature and excellent storytelling doesn’t exist? Well, it does now!"--Natasza Waters, InD'Tale Magazine
Julian Brownell, a two thousand-year-old vampire, thought depression and divorce in his banal, pretend-human life were bad enough. But when he decides to burst back onto the vampire scene, things go from bad to worse as he finds himself firmly in the sights of the deadliest vampire hunter of all time.
A History in Blood (2014 RONE Award Nominee) depicts a world where vampire culture and politics reside peacefully, and for the most, undetected beside the human world. It's a secretive and more dangerous culture for sure but counterpointed by everyday issues and problems that vampires have to deal with, just like their human prey. Against this backdrop, and with a healthy dose of humor, the story follows Titus Acilius (aka Julian Brownell, aka Christian Beauparlant) on his journey from Boston to New Orleans to Montreal to protect the people he loves from harm even as he searches for the answers to his ancient-life crisis.
