Get ready for something very different in terms of vampire (or vampyre) fiction. Leave it to Mel Keegan to reinvent everything you ever thought you knew about this genre, then add some of the more delicious gay heroes you've ever encountered, and stage the whole extraordinary opus in a historical setting which spans centuries.
To date only two Vampyre novels have been published -- but the first one, Nocturne itself, is three or even four times the length of an average ebook, and Twilght (which was published long before the current teen movie of the same title) is double the length, so it's as if you have six books in your hands here ... for the price of two!
Several more tales have been 'written in notes,' to be explored when MK's time (and muse) permit. For the moment, all we can tell you is there's one fantastic plot set in 1929, and another in the 1960s -- the latter in a place called Liverpool, when modern rock music came of age with the iconic bands which would become history...
Step into the glittering midnight world of the ancient ... the immortal ... he vampyre!
Intrigue murder and madness welcome Captain Vincent Bantry home to the City of London. The year is 1892.
He is a veteran of the Far East, opium smugglers and Manchu warlords, but little in Bantry’s experience has prepared him for what he will see, hear and feel when he meets the young Irish occultist, Michael Flynn. Their future unfolds in the Tarot cards – danger, pain and struggle – but the end of their story cannot be told. And what of the past?
The mystery of Michael Flynn draws Bantry into a strange, occult world, at once alien and irresistible. Instinctively, he knows Flynn is different, not merely beautiful, brilliant, exotic, but unlike any other man Bantry has ever known. Soon Vincent is caught up in a tangle of deceit, cruelty and danger, one jump ahead of the law, and seduced by the mystery, the grandeur of a midnight world into which he has glimpsed ... and which he greatly desires.
Mel Keegan returns to the voluptuous realm of the vampyre and the changeling .... but madness and murder once again haunt Vince Bantry and Michael Flynn.
England, 1905. A new century has begun ... and for both changeling and the vampyre, the challenge is to survive in a world which is rapidly changing. The era of science has been born. The automobile, the telephone and forensic medicine complicate the already difficult lives of the Children of the Night. The vampyre show themselves more rarely, and their beloved changelings must be more cautious than ever.
A newspaper from the Devonshire region carries a disturbing story which makes terrible sense to Vince Bantry and Michael Flynn. Changelings very like themselves are perishing in the bleak, beautiful moorland, and others have vanished utterly. Who is murdering, and why? And what has become of the ‘bad boy,’ the big, blond, handsome and irresistible Nicholas Crane, whose reputation as a profligate and scoundrel is a legend in the county? Nick was last seen in the company of a changeling woman, before both disappeared ... and the turmoil of blood, deceit and fear began.
