Because we love our readers so much (and because I am a bibliophile with multiple copies of the same vampire books) we are having a Happy Holidays vampire book giveaway! Woot! One of you lucky readers will win their very own copy of Vampireology: The True History of the Fallen, which is quiet possibly the most entertaining vampire books ever. See the book description and the giveaway details below!
The Ologies are a series of beautifully illustrated fantasy books presented in a fictional encyclopedic manner. They are meant to look like a real diary or old journal. They have actual hand written notes, slots filled with goodies, real “dragon skin” to feel and more. You may have read some of the others like Dragonology, Pirateology, Wizardology – but none are quite like Vampireology.
Long before the term vampire was born, long before Bram Stoker fictionalized this being’s ways, blood-drinking demons were banished to Earth by Michael’s host of Angels, or so the Bible describes. Now this rich, mesmerizing resource, written in 1900, sheds light on what happened hence to the three vampire bloodlines — especially the tortured souls known as the Belial. Interspersed are booklets, flaps, and letters between a young paranormal researcher who discovered the book in the 1920s and an oddly alluring woman who seeks his help. Among the phenomena explored are:
- vampires’ genealogical origins, attributes, and range
- myths about the making of vampires
- secrets of vampires’ powers and shape-shifting skills
- tips for spotting vampires, protecting oneself, and fighting back
- case studies of famous vampires — and vampire hunters — through history
- a shocking overview of vampires “living” among us
Fun, right? And it could be all yours!
