Reawakening sixty years after he believed himself staked to death, centuries-old vampire Baron Rudolfo Zginski finds himself in a modern world of racial tensions in 1975 Memphis, where he works to track down a nest of teenage vampires.

McMillan Palgrave
A steamy tale of vampires, sex, and the supernatural . . .

When centuries-old vampire Baron Rudolfo Zginski was staked in Wales in 1915, the last thing he expected was to reawaken in Memphis, Tennessee, sixty years later. Reborn into a new world of simmering racial tensions, the cunning nosferatu realizes he must adapt quickly if he is to survive.

Finding willing victims is easy, as Zginski possesses all the powers of the undead, including the ability to sexually enslave anyone he chooses. Hoping to learn how his kind copes with this bizarre new era, Zginski tracks down a nest of teenage vampires. But these young vampires have little knowledge of their true nature, having learned most of what they know from movies like Blacula.

Forming an uneasy alliance with the young vampires, Zginski begins to teach them the truth about their powers. They must learn quickly, for there’s a new drug on the street—a drug created to specifically target and destroy vampires. As Zginski and his allies track the drug to its source, they may unwittingly be stepping into a fifty-year-old trap that can destroy them all . . .

Book is not for faint of heart or the politically correct.
It's different.

Startlingly graphic, more than a little racist, and oddly compelling. This book nods to most of the classic vampire elements, and leaves them behind. It's characters walk neatly along the edge between to human and too monstrous, finding the balance that is vampire. With an interesting, and fairly novel plot line, it was a nice surprise for a book I'd personally never heard of before.
