It’s the summer of 2022, and mankind’s time on earth is drawing rapidly to an end.
The Mayan long-count calendar has been ticking down our final days for over twenty-six thousand years. Locked in a blood feud with the last two vampires left on earth, two families reunite after more than a century apart to battle these hideously powerful creatures, and to stop them before they open the threshold to their world that will begin the wholesale slaughter of humanity.
Sean Dunne, a down-on-his-luck D.C. homicide detective, and Gregor Innescu, an elderly Romanian man who’s been stalking the creatures for over fifty years, are drawn together by fate, and by a shared bloodline. Gregor has tracked the vampires for decades, watched them feed, plotted their movements, and uncovered their true purpose on earth. But he’s never acted to intervene, until now.
Until he met Sean Dunne.
Beginning with the discovery and removal of the Ark of the Covenant by the Knights Templar a thousand years earlier, the Innescu and Dunleavy families have shared a powerful blood bond. Separated over the centuries by countless battles with the vampires, they’ve been brought together in these final hours to prevent the opening of the threshold between worlds that would signal mankind’s bloody demise.
Joined by Sean’s daughter Carly, a microbiologist, and her fiancé Ryan, a man who’s not what he appears to be, Sean and Gregor take the fight to the very heart of the creatures’ existence.
The streets of Washington, D.C. offer the backdrop for this epic struggle between good and evil, between life and death, and between redemption and ruin. The threshold will open when the stars of the Pleiades achieve their final alignment, and hell will surely follow.
Born and raised in Northern Virginia, I’ve spent over 35 years in the construction business as a mechanical contractor. Forced from the industry by health concerns, I’ve spent the last six years following my true passion, writing. I’ve always been a storyteller, just ask those closest to me and watch for the eye roll, but I’m finally putting down on paper what’s been trapped inside me these last 57 years. I enjoy reading supernatural thrillers above all else, and we can blame The King for that, so that’s the genre in which I work. I hope you will give my rough style and layered plots a chance. Let me tell you a story. Read his other works Affinity’s Window and Awakening: Sequel to Affinity’s Window.
