Soul mate-or tragic fate? Once one of the oldest dhampirs in existence, Saeed now faces a treacherously uncertain future as a vampire. He believes that the only thing that can restore his position within his coven and tether his lost soul is the flame-haired fae who is destined to be his mate. Cerys Bain is a soul thief. She is feared by those who dwell in the supernatural realm-and hopelessly bound to the ruthless mage Rinieri de Rege. The raw, sensual vampire who enters her world is both a threat and an intoxicating temptation: No one has ever made Cerys feel the way Saeed does. But to claim their fate as soulmates, Saeed must first find a way to free Cerys from Rin. Is their desire worth the risk of certain destruction-and eternal doom?
International standard book number used for this book also used for earlier editions. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of its publication The time is now. We are in a small room with the vampire, face to face, as he speaks--as he pours out the hypnotic, shocking, moving, and erotically charged confessions of his first two hundred years as one of the living dead. . . He speaks quietly, plainly, even gently . . . carrying us back to the night when he departed human existence as heir--young, romantic, cultivated--to a great Louisiana plantation, and was inducted by the radiant and sinister Lestat into the other, the ´´endless,´´ life . . . learning first to sustain himself on the blood of cocks and rats caught in the raffish streets of New Orleans, then on the blood of human beings . . . to the years when, moving away from his final human ties under the tutelage of the hated yet necessary Lestat, he gradually embraces the habits, hungers, feelings of vampirism: the detachment, the hardened will, the ´´superior´´ sensual pleasures. He carries us back to the crucial moment in a dark New Orleans street when he finds the exquisite lost young child Claudia, wanting not to hurt but to comfort her, struggling against the last residue of human feeling within him . . . We see how Claudia in turn is made a vampire--all her passion and intelligence trapped forever in the body of a small child--and how they arrive at their passionate and dangerous alliance, their French Quarter life of opulence: delicate Grecian statues, Chinese vases, crystal chandeliers, a butler, a maid, a stone nymph in the hidden garden court . . . night curving into night with their vampire senses heightened to the beauty of the world, thirsting for the beauty of death--a constant stream of vulnerable strangers awaiting them below . . . We see them joined against the envious, dangerous Lestat, embarking on a perilous search across Europe for others like themselves, desperate to discover the world they belong to, the ways of survival, to know what they are and why, where they came from, what their future can be . . . We follow them across Austria and Transylvania, encountering their kind in forms beyond their wildest imagining . . . to Paris, where footsteps behind them, in exact rhythm with their own, steer them to the doors of the Théâtre des Vampires--the beautiful, lewd, and febrile mime theatre whose posters of penny-dreadful vampires at once mask and reveal the horror within . . . to their meeting with the eerily magnetic Armand, who brings them, at last, into intimacy with a whole brilliant and decadent society of vampires, an intimacy that becomes sudden terror when they are compelled to confront what they have feared and fled . . . In its unceasing flow of spellbinding storytelling, of danger and flight, of loyalty and treachery, Interview with the Vampire bears witness of a literary imagination of the first order.

And God told Moses, ´´And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt.´´ Moses called for all the elders of Israel and educated them on God´s word. Lambs were sacrificed, and their blood marked upon the two side posts of each Hebrew door. But there was an Egyptian woman that also heard the words of Moses and her name was Pashera. Standing tall and slender with smooth olive skin, Pashera frequently visited the Hebrew marketplaces. Unlike other the Egyptian women, she did not mind being amongst the foreigners. One day while shopping for fruit in the market, she overheard the nervous whisperings of the Hebrews. Tonight, they believed a destroyer was coming for the first born of Egypt. Pashera had witnessed the great plagues brought upon Egypt and feared the Hebrew God. Under cover of darkness, Pashera secretly sacrificed a lamb and marked her door as Moses instructed the Hebrews to do. She only had one child, a son named Barsa, and wanted to protect him from the wrath of this Hebrew God. Barsa´s father was no longer with them, and Barsa was all she had left. 1. Language: English.

Have you watched horror stories where vampires are the main characters? If you think that these supernatural beings are just part of your imagination, try to consider the possibility that they really exist. The night is filled with fear, as a vampire could attack randomly. The extreme thirst for blood may turn anyone as the victim or prey. Having an encounter with a serial killer would be the worst experience ever. When we say ´´serial killer´´, this person murdered more than two people, not just by shooting a gun or stabbing them with a knife. It is horrible to know that sexual contact is involved in most serial killings. Among the stories you have heard, you may not have found yet this peak level of intensity. The version where John Brennan is the vampire rapist is where you will discover his brutal acts and dark intentions. This man had criminal backgrounds like rape and kidnapping. Specifically, Crutchley killed 32 women in his entire venture. Considering the fact that he drained his victim´s blood, he is indeed suitable for the title of ´´vampire rapist´´. John was part of a wealthy family, but not of a circle of friends. Instead of interacting with the other young children outside, he preferred to explore his gadgets and play games. With his interest on technology-assisted equipment, his career was related to electronics. John Crutchley was able to earn a decent income from rebuilding stereo systems and doing radio repairs. This man has great potentials, making him competent in the company he was part of. He completed his course in physics within a reputable school in Ohio. After earning his bachelor´s degree, he never stopped learning. In fact, John Crutchley had his post-graduate schooling for the improvement of his skills in electronics. His diligence in studying is too far from his image of being a ´´vampire rapist´´ and criminal. This man was feared due to his notorious acts. However, every individual has his own burden. 1.
