KD McQuain grew up in the Alphabet City neighborhood of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Anyone interested in getting a free digital copy of my new book for an honest review can sign up at the link below.

https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Sometimes, death is just the beginning.

It's 1811, the spring wind blowing out of the western desert heralds disaster for the Mamluks of Egypt. Cairo is tearing itself apart in its struggle for modernization. Amym, a former Georgian slave soldier, seizes an opportunity to secure the freedom of the woman he loves. He must navigate the political unrest of a nation in turmoil and risks more than just his life to be with his childhood sweetheart. But the political intrigue and violence of an unstable nation force him to flee the only home he has ever known and fall into the grips of an evil that has lain in hiding for centuries. Will he find a way for them to be together while those around them die, or will he fall under the sway of a far reaching society of ancient, blood thirsty khafash?
