Novel Description

Jack King is a handsome, crafty vampire who tries to maintain his identity in a time when the daily erosion of privacy is the norm. He has managed to survive a changing world for decades and now must face an age of rapid globalization, fleeting romance, and social networks.

And just when his personal life takes an unexpected—and pleasant—turn, King learns his bloodline is worth a king's ransom. In a world where free markets and exploitation reign, one vampire is about to discover how mankind perceives his kind: as a monster, as a commodity, or as a being deserving of tolerance?

Part One:Jack King has lived over a hundred years on earth as a vampire and is finally comfortable enough to reveal his life and musings to the world through a confidant. In between revealing his thoughts, Jack goes on a date with a girl who he really is trying to impress. The date takes an unexpected turn, and Jack struggles to keep his identity secret while trying to build enough trust with the new girl. Jack gives his thoughts on love, technology, as well as vampires and photography.

Part Two: Jack and his trusted associate Ted, immediately get sent to Hong Kong on short notice to handle a client that has expressed deep dissatisfaction with the genetic engineering software they were given by Jack & Ted's company. While in Hong Kong, Jack finds keeping his identity a secret terribly difficult and must take on extreme measures just to survive. As we come to find out more in part two, we begin to see that Jack's trip is anything but just business.

Part Three: Jack longs for a chance at a deeper relationship with Holly, a surprising set of circumstances might present him with such an opporunity, as Holly receives a chance at entering Jack's inner world. Meanwhile, Ted, his best friend and confidant, requests something from Jack that puts their strong and long lived friendship on the precipice. As Jack maneuvers through his interpersonal relationships, he faces a horror so frightening, it jolts the very foundation at the core of humanity.

Part Four: Betrayed, Jack finds himself a prisoner of psychopathic corporate scientists who want to find out what makes him tick. They will stop at nothing to violate his very flesh in order to gain the secrets of his biology, as well as his corporate knowledge of a drug that could change medical history. Separated from his girlfriend, Holly, and his best friend, Ted, the only ones who can save Jack from a terrible fate are an offbeat group of Chinese vampires with a rich culture and history. Thrust into their unfamiliar culture and running from exploitative humans, Jack walks a fine line between his assimilation and loyalty to his human friends and his acceptance and growing knowledge of who he is, what he is, and his growing role in the future of his entire vampire species.
