An incredible adventure with amazing visuals that smashed all of my preconceived religious notions!

Father Marcus Ignatius Leeds investigates supposed supernatural occurrences and so far every case he has investigated turned out to be a fraud. His latest takes him to the USA to look into the strange situation of a young man, James Miller, who had been bleeding continuously for 21 days. After hearing James’s story about being visited by an angel who claimed that he would meet God soon, M

I am so glad the blurb didn't mention vampires. If it had, I would not have read it, and that would have been a shame. This is a great blend of Catholicism, faith and doubt, and steamy hot sex. I loved the strengths and flaws of each character, and the way the vampires worked into the story was fascinating. I'll definitely be buying book #2.

Joseph is a vampire in search of something or someone to help in the fight between angels and demons who possibly want to eradicate the vampires.

Love was not part of the equation when Marcus an

If I'd read the warning that came with the books blurb,Warning: Discretion advised for readers sensitive to religious themes, I'm not sure I would have read this book. And that would have been a shame. What drew me to the book was its cover. I like vampire stories and seeing a priest with bite marks on his neck just sucked me in--no pun intended. However, if I may issue my own warning, I would caution those who are looking for a good vampire story to reconsider this book. While it does deal with ...more
I really enjoyed reading this story. Reno & Jaye are one of my favorite writing duos and once again they delivered a well-written and very interesting story. The religious theme may not work for everyone (in fact I was a bit hesitant myself) but within a few pages I was hooked. I don't know if there's a sequel planned but I certainly hope so.

This is an intriguing narrative, distinct enough from the stories I have read that featured vampires, angels, demons, and the Catholic Church hierarchy and traditions.

Wow, just WOW! Need a few days to review, but this is one of the best books I've read in a while.

Not For The Faint Of Heart---That sums up my work with Jaye Valentine. I've always spent a good deal of time with the darker side of my imagination. I was never afraid of the dark. In fact, some of my fondest memories are of Saturday afternoons with my dad watching Creature Double Feature with a big bowl of popcorn. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Werewolves, angels, demons and vamp ...more
