Author Drew Silver initiates her firestorm trilogy with the first installment “The Vampire Within: The Beginning” --- Most everyone has a blood-thirsty vampire within them that's just waiting for the right moment. When that moment arises, you'll know. There won't be a drop of furniture in the place that isn't covered in blood.

With the competition to succeed as fierce as any war at Triton University, students will do just about anything to succeed. Considering the amazing effects promised by a breakthrough research project developed by Dr. Travis Cohn, many have decided to signup. Hoping to eradicate ailments, and enhance intelligence, athletic performance, and personal appearance, participants in the project are willing to forgo the reasonable side effects in exchange for the guaranteed results….but it’s a new set of fangs and the need to drink blood that has this last research group concerned.

“The Vampire Within: The Beginning” (ISBN 141963643X) sets the stage for the horror filled initiation as a group of college students journey into the world of the modern vampire. With nausea, muscle pain and headaches giving way to more obvious blood-thirsty vampire behaviors, all hell breaks loose for everyone involved. Those who participate in the research project are about to get a very abrupt awakening to a living nightmare. Each must ultimately decide whether to accept their fate and fight the evil that is responsible, or be hunted by the very creatures that they’ve turned into.

Silver is a huge fan of the classic vampire story that began with the original Dracula and Bela Lugosi. Inspired by observing the similarities between our lives and that of vampires, Silver’s trilogy “The Vampire Within” was born. “Vampires seek power, wealth, beauty, and eternal life. Most of us seek that as well and would do whatever we could to get it.” Wanting to keep the excitement of the vampire realm alive in old fans and hopefully gain new ones, Silver intertwined the past and present in a feasible way with modern themes of science and DNA manipulation. It truly would be good versus evil if we could create the ultimate vampire – wouldn’t it?

A degree in Criminal Justice, a twenty year history studying the martial arts and a life-long attraction to horror themes are Silver’s combined experiences that provide a wealth of possibilities to pull from in this fast-paces trilogy. With her captivating writing style and talent for observation, this new author is reawakening the slumbering expectations of vampire fans. Do not miss the unforgettable beginning of this whirlwind trilogy that is leaving readers thirsty for the sequel.
