He’s cranky, he’s old, he just wants to be left alone.
Healer by trade, anti-hero by grudging acceptance, vampire by... mistake? Richard struggles with his blood-stealing nature for five thousand years until Maggie incinerates his life during the 1700's. But it doesn't end there, not as long as Captain William Blackthorn, vicious pirate with an ancient secret, is still skulking around.
Fast forward to a modern day Ontario forest. After invading his sanctuary, when the burgeoning leader of a pack of young modern vampires, Alan, investigates Richard’s forgotten past for more vendetta fuel against Captain Billy the Black Death, Richard gets more than he bargained for.
Bent on revenge, coming into awareness and dealing with the “enemy” technology, his once-peaceful existence is turned upside-down while old gods, young vampires, ancient magic, and the outcome of a blood feud could dictate the fate of the world.
