Synopsis: His name is Jeremiah Fall. A solider of fortune, he has been fighting his own war for 150 years - ever since the beast in him was born.
Desperate to restore his lost humanity, Fall crosses the sands of Egypt, discovers a lost city off the coast of France, and finally arrives at the birthplace of all mankind. Shunning daylight and feeding only when he must, he battles the monster who transformed him forever. He can share his deepest secret with no one...not even the beautiful woman he starts to love, the only human who grasps the mysteries of an ebony stone as old as creation itself.
Across the world, across time, Fall seeks the stone's secret. But has he found a cure for himself or unleashed a final curse on all mankind?
Review: Mr. Petrucha’s book, Blood Prophecy, gives you an Indiana Jones-like feel with vampires as the dark twist. The author weaves historical facts together with a retelling of the Christian creation tale which incorporates the origins of vampires. Jeremiah Fall was from the early Puritan settlements in America, but once he is infected by “the beast”, he travels across Africa and Europe, searching for a cure and some answers. I loved how descriptive the writing was and especially the new vampire mythology!! I also had to smile at the thanks given to the TV show, Dark Shadows.
