Vampire Messiah: Waging A Conspiracy Of Hope And Saving The World One Bite At A Time
Social activist Wardell Church changes forever the night he blacks out and receives a dangerous gift from a powerful, blindingly fast vampire with a penchant for high fashion, pop music and horrible puns. Church loses everything that ever mattered to him, but under the unconventional instruction of his insane maker, Wardell hunts for salvation itself, and reluctantly sets out to save the world. More
Everything Wardell Church ever cared about is torn from him the night he is unwillingly changed into a bloodsucking monster: his family, his career, the secret love of his life – even rather important parts of his anatomy. Nothing but the professor's conscience survives the transformation, and the nights of blood and violence, stale coffee, bad wordplay, show tunes and stylish shoes cannot make up for what he has lost.
But Wardell has been chosen, his self-appointed mentor insists, so why not save the world? Or try dying.
Vampire Messiah is the personal narrative of a painfully homesick, immortal monster on a desperate quest to turn his meaningless existence into a gift to the world. Equal parts gothic romance, political fiction and personal confession, Vampire Messiah weaves together the final exploding moments of a collapsing mind, only to arrive at one profoundly ironic insight into this precarious thing we call mortality.
