Blood Ending: A Vampire Novel by Michael McGovern is set in the 19th and 20th centuries. It chronicles the life of Severin, a vampire, and his nemesis, Praetorius, an alchemist. Their paths first cross at a school of black magic through a woman named Clarimonde. Become immersed in a world of vampires and alchemy as Severin and his trinity of female vamps wreak havoc through a century of cat and mouse with Praetorius. With a mix of alchemy and eroticism, explore a new world of vampire lore that will take you on a roller coaster ride through actual historical events and grotesque scenarios that will surprise you with their twists and turns. From the school of black magic to Syria, Vienna, Berlin, London, Dresden, and New York, our characters embark on a journey of love, hate, betrayal, loyalty, suffering, hope, and change.
Michael McGovern’s Blood Ending is not your typical vampire love story or battle between good and evil. Instead, it is an exciting and captivating look into the world of vampires and how history can drastically change the narratives of our mythologies. McGovern’s novel immediately takes you into the action, immersing you in a tangible and practically accurate world. He is also exceptional in developing his characters, especially his female ones. McGovern shows flexibility and the ability to write various sympathetic characters with actual needs, concerns, and intentions. One significant element is time and how this significantly changes the dynamics, allowing us to look into the classic vampire novel's more profound and different side. If you are a fan of vampires, eroticism, alchemy, and history, this story will not fail to quench your thirst.
