A savage and sensuous chronicle of a contemporary vampire seeking vengeance against God. For centuries Victor Decimus, former Roman officer under Pontius Pilate, has fed his rage with blood. Desperately in love with but ultimately rejected by the young Jesus, Victor turns on the citizens of Jerusalem in a frenzy of rape and violence, leaving him no escape but through entry into the chaotic world of darkness he finds as a vampire.
Two thousand years later, in the guise of a monk, Victor takes up residence in the monastery of St. Thomas, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains. In Brother Michael he finds a hint of the love he has sought throughout his dark existence. But his rage, his desires, and his vow of vengeance against the God of the Christians drive him to insane levels of violence against his prey, leading to an investigation of "Brother Victor" and the monastery.
As investigators close in, Victor launches his most daring effort: the transformation of Brother Michael. And with everything at stake, the consequences of interference are horrifying beyond mortal imagination.

- Candateshia Pafford "I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)"
I am not shocked by the sacrilegious subject matter of this book; indeed as a gay Christian I was intrigued by the possible temptation of Christ by a male admirer. What disappointed me, is the idea that Jesus would be tempted by the lead character of this book. He is utterly devoid of any redeeming qualities. The book is trash; I could not finish it. Truly one of the worst books I have ever read.Additionally if a person is going to write historical fiction, do some research. The main character, while a soldier in Tiberius' legions talks about the Baths of Caracalla, which were not built for some 200 years after Tiberius. A small point but nonetheless one more reason to save your money and time by not buying this book.
