He couldn't remember that kind of love. He had feelings for her, but he figured it was part of her being assigned to him, a way to make sure he did his best. The country is nearly empty—completely demolished by the horrors the apocalypse has wrought. Families are starving to death, violence is a daily staple, and the once fruitful landscape is completely destroyed. Cody is one of the fortunate ones. She has managed to keep herself and her livestock alive, scraping what she can from the obliterated environment, and setting herself up as a base for the lucky people who will actually manage to walk, ride, or crawl to her farm. Always having been used to taking care of herself and working hard, she is resistant to the man who has come to her talking of 'being assigned' to her. But his presence is intoxicating, and she soon finds herself drawn into an emotional intimacy that could break down every boundary she has ever built. But neither Cody nor her newfound housemate are prepared for the evil that is coming. Ephraim is a vampire of the Christ, charged with the protection of a woman named Cody, and assigned to stay with her until the great battle is ended. He is completely unfamiliar with human concepts like love, but he has never encountered feelings like this before. He has become irrevocably bonded to Cody in a completely unique way. But as the lives of the mortals are threatened by females illegally created by the Dark, he must struggle through the possibility of losing the only woman he has ever cared about. Will Cody and Ephraim's love be able to stay strong through the evil threatening their very livelihood, or will they succumb and be vanquished like so many before them? Join author Tammie Richardson for an epic battle led by the Children of the Son.

Pushing the boundaries of our limits in love, compassion, forgiveness and openness. Children of the son implores us to acknowledge what we really can do when pushed to the brink. Inner strength and wisdom of the ages in an open-minded journey, filled with Darkness and Light.
As a first time author, T.W. Richards has written a phenomenal novel and I eagerly await the authors next work of art.
Take a walk through the depths of darkness and to the beauty of Light with T.W. Richards in this fast paced intelligent novel, for those who can keep up. The story is intricately woven together and truly is a beautiful dance of love and Light.
