Formerly owned by a prominent writer, Granite Bar Island is now under the property of a mysterious family from Europe. As they were taller than most of the local residents of the town, extremely pale in appearance, and spoke with a mild Northern European accent, most residents believe that they are cult members hiding from the outside world—aren’t they? Author J.P. Dorsey weaves a tale of blood-rushing suspense and riveting mystery in his newly published novel, Dhampir Chronicles: The Awakening.
The first book in a trilogy series, The Awakening begins with the awakening experience of a human male; evolving into his destiny as the Protector of the Ostlandik Clan residing on an island in Moose Head Lake, Maine. Unlike traditional vampires, the Ostlandiks survive on synthetic blood to coexist with the human world. The European Clan however, follows the ancient ways—feeding from humans. And they will not allow anyone of their kind to accept humans as equals, no matter what. Readers will witness the clash of vampire clans as shocking events begin to unfold.
With unforgettable characters and unpredictable twist and turns, Dhampir Chronicles: The Awakening will surely be a treat for fans of vampire stories. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to Xlibris.com.
