Book 1 of the Second Species
A new type of vampire in an old world...
Men call them vampires. They call themselves aventurieri. For generations, they hide in the mists of the Carpathians away from their human foes.
In 1793, everything changes... Their Prince's assassin is murdered. His son demands revenge.
Marek Strigoi's quest for justice will take him from his Transylvanian homeland to the Hellfire clubs of Vienna and the boudoir of a Parisian Marquise, and a love surviving the centuries but he can't give up his quest.
When both the hunter and the hunted are vampires, not even Hell will stand in the way.
'Shadow Lord will draw you into a world where love, vengeance and honor intermingle. It will change the way you think about vampires.'
Tony Eldridge, author of The Samson Effect
