Near Death: Book II in the Power of the Blood World
by Nancy Kilpatrick
David Lyle Hardwick was a poet well over a century ago. Now, he is an undead poet, residing in Manchester, England, surviving during the day in the basement of his ancestors’ stately home. He sleeps in a coffin, acting out the role of vampire. This sensitive yet unholy creature would continue his tormented existence but one night a beautiful girl named Zero appears with stake in hand.
