In this haunting first novel, Ulysses G. Dietz explores a dark world of men who are condemned to outlive their friends and lovers, men who never age, men who search throughout time for love and acceptance but more often find rejection, isolation, and, ultimately, tragedy: the world of vampires. Nothing unsettling has happened to Desmond Beckwith in hundreds of years. And then suddenly he falls in love with a 24-year-old man and must struggle with whether to come out to his lover as being one of the undead. This welcome addition to the canon of vampire literature will leave readers with little doubt that there are indeed vampires living -- and loving -- among us.
