The world has never seen insidethe mind of those out of time out of a time when life held little value for those that would take it at will.Until now.But, can a creature born into violence change with the tides of history?***Those who Vlad and Erzsebet hunt are the very criminals who would turn our lives and homesÂ into houses of fear.Yet, do they have the right?The executed are those who would act as unwarranted executioners.But, vengeful forces have traveled through history to stop the immortals in their tracks.Are there no heroes in Dead Souls?***There is a moment in the first book, when Dracula (not a vampire, but not a man- he himself not certain what he is, or how or why he is alive) says, Since my time...in my own country, mans warlike nature has remained intact. But now laws...rights...and courts...protect the worst among us.The story continues as Dracula and Bathory storm a house full of drug dealers and addicts plying their trade.Dracula watches Bathory as she methodically and maniacally leaves none alive.He states, I love to watch her kill. She takes her prey with neither compassion...nor mercy.To the Countess Bathory, death is but an art, and murder her medium.***In the stories of old, heroes were not so difficult to discern. Why has it become so difficult now?Ours is a time when those that would fight evil must often adopt its defining methods.Dare we, against the will of power, call them heroes? Or, are they only murderers seeking a different kind of prey?Dead Souls raises many questions, but there are only the beginnings of answers.
