CANTERBURY, Australia (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
From bloodthirsty creatures of the night to pale heartthrobs that sparkle under sunlight, vampires have seen a dramatic makeover through the years. In his literary debut, “The Clueless Dead” (published by Xlibris AU), Keith Greenwood pays tribute to the classic vampire myth while adding his own unique twist to this genre.
Greenwood’s “The Clueless Dead” follows an ordinary guy, a professional musician, not a rock star, who has transformed into a vampire as a result of a series of coincidences. After turning, he then must deal with the consequences of having vampire powers as well as the temptations involved in possessing the ability to mentally manipulate people, besides the spiritual quandary of being a vampire and a Christian.
As most movies show people and as most books tell a vampire story using the female perspective, it shows that vampires are just good-looking man with their superhuman abilities explained to them. Greenwood’s tale is the exact opposite of all these common themes. In his story, the vampire must learn all that there is to know of all his new ‘vampiric’ state and deal with the struggles and conflicts that go with it — all on his own.
Filled with stunning twists and turns, “The Clueless Dead” is an exciting addition to vampire fiction. It will entertain readers from dusk ‘til dawn.
