He slaughtered 30,000 in one night in Jerusalem and impaled 100,000 more in Romania in the 1400s. Now Vladamir Strigoi has discovered a way to enslave humans and rule the world - and this time, thanks to Project Ichorous, the death toll will be catastrophic.
Only one thing can put an end to his plans - a Strigoi human. And Vlad will stop at nothing to eradicate every last one.
Scarlett Fraser has no idea she's the very thing Vlad is hunting. To stop him and save the world, Scarlett has got to remain human; but as Scarlett is about to discover, staying human is a lot easier said than done.
From the Christian Crusades to the war in Afghanistan, the Vampire Origins weaves historical fact with vampire fiction to create an epic charater-rich saga full of action, mystery, intrigue and horror - keeping you hooked to the very last word.
The series traces the origins of five very different vampire tribes: Strigoi, Cambion, Bretonnian, Strix, and Nosferatu.
Strigoi - From his creation in the bloodshed of the crusades, to his reemergence as Vlad the Impaler, Vladamir Strigoi has sought a way to enslave mankind and rule the world. Only one thing can stop him - a true, Strigoi human. Vlad will search the world for his descendants, turning them before they can put an end to him.
Cambion - Descended from royalty, the Cambions are a proud and arrogant race of pureblood born vampires. Having never experienced the restrictions of human emotion, they take what they want and kill with cruel abandon. They have just one rule - never turn a human.
Bretonnian - Forget murder and violent conversions. Forget the Freemasons and Scientology. The Bretonnians' are the hippest club among the creative elite and they are all for free choice, free love and free spirit. From scientists to artists and from rock stars to Hollywood's biggest names, anyone who is anyone wants to be a Bretonnian.
Strix - A fierce tribe of warrior vampires, the Strix are often employed by governments and private armies as bodyguards, mercenaries and assassins to take down dictators. They are ruthless, efficient killers working side by side with their human counterparts. But the Strix have one weakness - their hunger for blood often drives them to become the very thing they hunt.
Nosferatu - A shadowy race led by a fallen priest, they are slaves to their religious beliefs, unable to move beyond their superstitions that keep them hidden in the dark.
