Vampire Maker (#4)

Previous: Vampire Transgression

After turning his human lover into a vampire in Washington, D.C., upsetting the Dark Kingdom’s delicate balance and exponentially increasing his own powers, Victor fled to post-Katrina New Orleans in order to escape the Dark Kingdom’s justice, leaving his lover behind. Mere geography, however, cannot protect Victor from the Dark Kingdom’s agents, who are hellbent on resetting the balance and stopping Victor’s plans to become a vampire maker — at any cost.

Father Charles Boisvert believes he has overcome his homosexual desires — that is, until troubled, young Kyle enters his confessional. Kyle is Victor’s latest thrall, trapped to do Victor’s bidding, desperate to escape yet loving his subservience. Charles is determined to save Kyle from Victor’s control, even if it means giving in to temptation.

While Charles and Victor battle for Kyle’s soul, the Dark Kingdom’s agents draw ever closer. The very thing that will give Victor the power to defeat them — transforming Kyle from thrall to vampire — will simultaneously free Kyle from Victor’s control, yet doom his soul forever.


“Vampire fans will enjoy familiar tropes with a few tweaks, and flashbacks make the episode accessible to new readers.”
