A vampire civil war is going on, with one side that hates humans and the other that is loyal to him. In author Michael W. Holman’s new publication, “Resolve and Retribution”, a mortal man named Benjamin Hammonds gets tangled in a battle between two adversaries. This story tells how love and loyalty overpowers hate and hubris.

Ben leads a routine life: Oregon state agency office job, distance running, and avoiding traffic when it’s possible. Once the sun sets, however, his life takes an extraordinary turn. He is in a relationship with a vampire who has not drawn breath since she was a young noblewoman in Birmingham, England, during the seventeenth century. Although their love is pure and true, Tabitha has a terrible secret that she cannot bring herself to divulge. As Ben learns the hard way, there are rules for all—humans and vampires alike. He must decide how far he will go to protect his loved ones when an ancient undead adversary of Tabitha’s intensifies an already bloody vampire power struggle. Will he be able to make it?

This book shows how two people from uncommon backgrounds find each other and defy fate. The lovers’ struggle is not only brought about by their differences but also by the painful past of Tabitha. Her nemesis is fast catching up with her, and sooner, she needs to decide how to best use her cards and snatch the victory. She cannot do it without the support of Ben. Holman’s characters are remarkable and his plot is craftily weaved, bringing the readers into a breathtaking journey before a satisfying conclusion.

Fast-paced and peppered with riveting twists and turns, “Resolve and Retribution” will capture the readers’ imagination and draw them into the enticing paranormal world.
