Michael Bentley is a loving father and husband from a small town in central Georgia, who has an interest in art and literature since early childhood, which included history, true crime, legends, myths, psychology, travel, and theology. He has completed his new book “The Awakening”: a dark and gripping story revolving around Frederick, the first true vampire, and his discovery of an ancient evil that infects him at a terrible cost.

Author Bentley reveals the frightening terror surrounding the idea of an unseen scourge lurking in the shadows, waiting for someone to fall prey to a deadly trap: “It happened so quickly that Shoktul barely even had time to flinch. The boy seemed to be thinking about taking his hand when suddenly his lips curled back and opened his jaws monstrously wide, revealing rows of jagged teeth. Lunging forward with exceptional speed he tried to bite his father’s hand. Shoktul snatched his hand back as fast as possible but not before he felt the sharp pain of the flesh between his thumb and forefinger being ripped away. Before he knew it his son had leapt on top of one of the stable post, and perched there he was staring Shoktul in the eyes, blood dripping from his jaws. Shoktul could see the fire light getting closer, and then there was the boy’s mother, standing beside him.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Michael Bentley’s hair-raising novel depicts the life of a seemingly immortal being and his struggle to remain human despite his monstrous nature.

Readers who wish to experience this twisted work can purchase “The Awakening” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.
