Before there was Edward, before there was Spike, before there was Angel, there was Peter Octavian - and I must say that I much prefer Octavian. Sorry, fellas, but it's true.
If you're looking for a good vampire book to sink your teeth into, look no further than Christopher Golden's Of Saints and Shadows. The cover summary says it all: A brilliant epic that takes you into the secret world of vampires -- and a secret society sworn to destroy them. Sweeping, sensuous, and shocking, it is a powerful vision of immortality that will hold you in its spell...forever.
Golden's bestselling novels about the vampire known as Peter Octavian are collectively referred to as The Shadow Saga. To date, there are four books in the series, with the fifth, entitled Waking Nightmares, scheduled to be released in April of 2011. Between now and then, new editions of every book in this dark fantasy series will be released, each with a brand-new cover. Of Saints and Shadows was released today. This new edition offers a new foreword by Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire mysteries.
