For the first time in e-book - the vampire classics

Common Dread

"Monahan breathes new life into the vampire theme by discarding clichés and replacing Dracula by someone more closely akin to Faust. Horror fans will like it. Clever, thrilling and, above all, entertaining." Library Journal

Somewhere in the maze of stacks at Princeton University's Firestone Library rests an ancient document - and vampire Vincent DeVilbiss will stop at nothing to possess it. Brent Monahan's acclaimed novel pits curator Simon Penn and DeVilbiss in a battle of wits - with the beautiful Frederika Vanderveen as a pawn in the middle - in which the fate of mankind goes to the winner.

"A heaven-sent vampire novel set in Princeton University, sequel to the smartly amusing The Book of Common Dread, which featured a 500-year-old, piano-playing bloodsucker whose great love was Bach…Vampire vitamins for the intelligently bloodthirsty." Kirkus Reviews

Following up where The Book of Common Dread leaves off, Monahan literally unleashes Hell on Earth, as Simon Penn, his changeling love, Frederika Vanderveen, and a Vatican priest face off against a millennia-old minion of Satan in a race across continents - and against time - to save their souls. And the world. CLICK TO PURCHASE
