Sounds like the author has historical/theological background in this subject.
That being said, the references are familiar to almost anyone reading this. The only detractor was the Bella Lugosi mention. I agree that a mention of a figure such as Vlad the Impaler would've been more appropriate.
Otherwise, the story is solid and the writing is well done! Only religious​ zealots/extremists will take issue with this piece of written freedom of expression and reinterpretation/reimagining.
Bravo! 5 Stars !

The first few pages drew me in. Once I started reading it was impossible to put down. Clever and funny dealing with a topic that I had never considered before. I highly recommend this book. Just find a comfortable chair and a cold drink and be prepared to be entertained!

Dark Resurrection is a fun, interesting and clever re-interpretation about the story of Christ's die hard attitude towards death; re-imagined with a humourous zombie twist.

Although the idea of portraying Jesus Christ as a zombie may seem blasphemous, the author provides an alternate yet tasteful vision of events with considered respect. I appreciate the effort the author uses to keep story fun while avoiding any anti-christian or offensive material. I thought it was surprisingly respectful and considerate to the views, details and message of the biblical Christ story.

I found the authors writing to be clever, fast-paced and funny,
you don't need prior knowledge of religious teachings to appreciate it.
I recommend Dark Resurrection for anyone to check out, it's free..

Ignore what the negative reviewers here say.
I suggest just to read one page for yourself, I think you will like it.

- Who knows, it may be the most factual work of fiction you never read..

Good lord, what a horrible book. The writing is amateurish. It pretty much reads like someone was okay in their Freshman year creative writing class and spent a long time on a poor idea. Here's a great sample of the text, " Brushing his long, myrrh scented brown hair from his face, he observed a bright full moon hanging low on the horizon, noting it was late in the evening.".

In case you don't read much, that's what we call "bad writing'. It was so poor that it distracted from any appreciation someone without a sense of humor may have gotten from the hamfisted plot.

Seriously, "Jesus as a vampire" is a shallow idea. Here's one for the sequel. Mohamed turns into a werewolf every crescent moon. See how easy this is?

I read it about a month ago. I'd liken it to a Dean Koontz story or one of Steven King's Bachman books. The ones that didn't delve into the background of each character with a two chapter synopsis about that person's history. It's funny, it's full of historical figures and places that tweeked my imagination as I turned each page, and I believe there's a Part 2 out there somewhere. Except for Bela Lugosi, I would never consider myself a fan of Vampire stories, but I recommend it to anyone who likes history, a good chuckle, and dose not get offended with a bit of irreverence. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Little rough start. Q. How did he know he had a spear wound if he was already dead and not awake at the time. Instead of dragging out that he sounded like "Dracula" but suggesting hints, say something like his voice had changed and sounded like a foreigner he once met that was from Romania when he was alive. If people have never heard of Dracula or know his background as Vlad the Impaler they'll never understand any hints given to them. Other then that I think it's a good "stab" at a book, didn't seem to "suck" either. Kind of reminded me of Love at First Bite in book form...

Who makes money writing free books? Apparently this person and his offensive thoughts on Jesus. I realize this atheist thinks it's "funny" to use Jesus this way, but he is wrong. Offended a religion is not a good way to be taken seriously.
