The only two vampires left after the eradication are side show attractions in a traveling carnival, caged and forced to perform for paying gawkers. The carnival’s bombastic owner learns that his exploitation of both the vampires and his 15-year-old nephew, who is in charge of their care and feeding, can have undreamed-of and most unwelcome consequences.
THE LAST VAMPIRES ON EARTH is available from BTS eMag, page 93.
For “The Pentacle Pendant”:
“There are twists and turns in the final pages that promise to lift Claire Delaney beyond the ‘domestic’ and into the ‘global’. Highly recommended. Some moments of R-rated sex and violence (but what else would you expect in a werewolf story?)” — Dr. Michael R. Collings, active HWA member and literary critic.
The Pentacle Pendant is a howling good read.” – Dave Gammon, horrornews.net
Morgen is a dark tale with an even darker twist. I quickly forgot the synopsis and found myself on the roller coaster of mystery that overshadowed the young woman. — Cassie McCown, Gathering Leaves
