Vampires unite and divide over the ways they feed. In Book Two of the trilogy, "The Undead of the Low Country" Roland Matthews has taken on a new vital role in his Purist party of hunters. He is battle worn by the end of this second installment as he finds unlikely allies to help eradicate the Christian Vampires known as the Originals. A sacred stone is still missing. It is kept hidden by an exclusive coven of root doctors who brought ancient African religion with them and magic. The slave trade stole them from their respective motherlands but the melting pot of slave culture in South Carolina's Low Country gave them a common bond. Voo-doo became a way for them to heal as slave doctors. It became for the Gullah, an amalgamation of all spirits. They live near Roland and have a peaceful business relationship for voo-doo charms and roots. He came before them. Roland is a Londoner by birth but was whisked away to Paris by his first bride. Europe spreads out to the New World and Roland is among the first to make the trip after his party endures massive loss. He aims to build a following in the Americas. He converts Samuel. Samuel is an artist. He makes murals depicting Vampire history. He uses bones from their kills to show their stories. Vampire mythology becomes an obsession as Roland and Samuel try to trace the history of their kind. The vampire started out as a bipedal, nocturnal ape-like creature who drank blood to live. As man became self-aware, his brain and body changed. God and Satan kept the vampire to thin out the greedy modern man. They could feed by night. As time went on, vampires became indistinguishable in feature from man. The Old Ancients died out. The Crusades nearly destroyed all vampires. But, the Purists were hit the hardest. The Dark Paladins were guarding the stone. They used it to enchant their armor. The stone had once been held by a secret Pharoah who also managed to get a scroll of minor spells from a traitor vampire. The stone was lost to the Dogon. Then, the Dark Paladins came. They gave the stone to Sinclair who hid it in America. The Dogon were in hot pursuit. They managed to find the true stone as several fakes existed. They tucked it away on a remote, uninhabited Sea Island called Little Tybee Island, Georgia. There it remains. The only way to unlock its power is to possess the scroll. History teases the reader in this swift sequel in the new vampire trilogy. To find out the fate of the scroll, readers must check for Book Three coming soon: "The War of the Revenants" takes the reader backwards in time. Book one in the trilogy gives the reader an update. Book Two details the Crusades. Book Three tells of the great war, in which vampires fought against resurrected dead in Egypt.
