    In this magnificent biography, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion and Franklin and Winston brings vividly to life an extraordinary man and his remarkable times. Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power gives us Jefferson the politician and president, a great and complex human being forever engaged in the wars of his era. Philosophers think; politicians maneuver. Jefferson’s genius was that he was both and could do both, often simultaneously. Such is the art of power.

    A savage and sensuous chronicle of a contemporary vampire seeking vengeance against God. For centuries Victor Decimus, former Roman officer under Pontius Pilate, has fed his rage with blood. Desperately in love with but ultimately rejected by the young Jesus, Victor turns on the citizens of Jerusalem in a frenzy of rape and violence, leaving him no escape but through entry into the chaotic world of darkness he finds as a vampire.

    Has Vampire Vow turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am not shocked by the sacrilegious subject matter of this book; indeed as a gay Christian I was intrigued by the possible temptation of Christ by a male admirer. What disappointed me, is the idea that Jesus would be tempted by the lead character of this book. He is utterly devoid of any redeeming qualities. The book is trash; I could not finish it. Truly one of the worst books I have ever read.Additionally if a person is going to write historical fiction, do some research. The main character, while a soldier in Tiberius' legions talks about the Baths of Caracalla, which were not built for some 200 years after Tiberius. A small point but nonetheless one more reason to save your money and time by not buying this book.
