Hunters of the Shadows - 2nd Edition
by Mark Haeuser
Meet Darius Creed, a Gypsy Prince kept alive for over 1,000 years by Gypsy witches to protect mankind from vampires, werewolves, and other undead creatures. Armed with charmed knives and silver-buletted pistols, he roves the earth hunting down evil.
Along the way, he meets Jacob Reid, a martial arts instructor who possesses the sword of an ancient samurai warrior who was another who stalked through the night, protecting the world from the undead. Jake is soon recruited to be a Hunter of the Shadows -- a secret society of vampire-killers who have been busy throughout the ages as the undead spread their kind around the world. Aided by gypsy witches who call upon ancient magic to fortify the hunters, and a Roman Catholic priest possessing ancient Church artifacts, they come face to face with an aggressive band of vampires in America, seeking to usurp the influence and authority of the Old-World Council, a group of powerful and ancient vampires who rule all vampirekind. These young upstarts are aided by a voodoo priestess and gangs of goth vampire wannabes in their quest for world domination.
Darius joins forces with his arch enemy, the vampire Lord Rasmere, in an effort to stop the upstart vampire hordes. Will the truce between these ancient enemies hold while they battle their common foe? Will Darius and his friends survive a conflict with the New World vampire lords and minions? Will they stop the vampire's plot to fulfill an ancient prophecy, changing the world forever?
This book, filled with rich detail, interesting characters, and exciting fight scenes, will carry you away to a place where magic and myth meet modern society. It is sure to delight.
