Centuries ago a pope signed a controversial agreement in a desperate attempt to save his church, rocking the highest levels of the Vatican at the time. Over the centuries the contract was nearly forgotten--but now it's resurfaced to threaten not just the Church, but the future of mankind. Its message reveals the reality of vampires in the world--and conspiracies and murders have long worked together to keep this fact a deep secret. With the revelation comes danger, intrigue, and the involvement of an art historian and a Jesuit priest who find themselves in a desperate race to piece together clues from human and vampire worlds that will reveal an even greater secret central to all worlds. Part fantasy, part novel and packed with elements of a thriller, this is an unforgettable read recommended for any fiction collection.
