Explore (if you dare) the true history of the Fallen Ones — and follow the fate of a 1920s investigator lured by a beauty with violet eyes.
Long before the term vampire was born, long before Bram Stoker fictionalized this beings ways, blood-drinking demons were banished to Earth by Michaels host of Angels, or so the Bible describes. Now this rich, mesmerizing resource, written in 1900, sheds light on what happened hence to the three vampire bloodlines — especially the tortured souls known as the Belial. Interspersed are booklets, flaps, and letters between a young paranormal researcher who discovered the book in the 1920s and an oddly alluring woman who seeks his help. Among the phenomena explored are:
* vampires genealogical origins, attributes, and range
* myths about the making of vampires
* secrets of vampires powers and shape-shifting skills
* tips for spotting vampires, protecting oneself, and fighting back
* case studies of famous vampires — and vampire hunters — through history
* a shocking overview of vampires "living" among us
"Set in the 1920s, the latest addition to the bestselling Ologies series follows Joshua Kraik, a private detective whose murdered colleague has entrusted him with the book he's written about vampires. Readers can read alongside Kraik, as the copiously illustrated book explores vampires' ancestors (three fallen angels), the global spread of 'the curse,' vampires' powers, and ways to protect against them (with the series' trademark letters, flaps, and other ephemera integrated throughout). Readers for whom vampires are still a source of fascination and fear should be drawn into Kraik's suspenseful detective-meets-Dracula story, right up to its chilling conclusion. Ages 10 up."
