I had the distinct pleasure to read Birth of the Vampir … finishing it last night I realized that I needed to share my thoughts about a most wonderfully written book.  ~ LadyM

The following is the book description from

The Bloodline: Birth of the Vampir is a dark tale of innocence lost and monstrosity born. Set in 13th century Europe, the book chronicles the fall of a Transylvanian Lord and his people at the hands of a ruthless Archdeacon in search of the Holy Grail. Cursed and exiled from their land, the former citizens of Erdely soon find themselves in the grips of a transformation, becoming something the world has never seen before—the first vampires.  Shaun McGinnis and Rod Garcia have crafted the finest of origin stories, setting the stage for a series of epic proportions.


I should now like to share my personal review of the book … Enthralling!.

Anyone who enjoys deep historical content will relish this book from start to finish.

I have actually dabbled in research about Knights Templar in the past because of certain passages that I have read in many books focusing on the elusive beginnings of the Vampire.

The Bloodline: Birth of the Vampir is a wonderfully written account, so steeped in history, which is exactly how I like the books that I read to be written.

Can power and greed ultimately corrupt a man, not just any man but one who has given his life to the service of the Church and God? …. and do those who seek retribution for the unspeakable evil befall the same fate?

Published by Dark Hall Press and released on August 12, 2013, The Bloodline: Birth of the Vampir readers have given it a 5 star rating.
