Blood Sick Vampire

Blood Sick Vampire is a fun adventure novel that depicts the biblical Cain as an unlikely hero struggling against the armies of Satan. He also just so happens to be a vampire. J.E. Serrano’s novel follows Cain from his tragic fall to his appearance during the Third Crusade, where he captivates and transforms Diego Torrolisimo. They soon realize that Diego may be more than your average vampire. The two of them, alongside Cain’s disciples (including a talking vampiric Bengal tiger named Shao-sin!), go on adventures and battle against Satan and his minions across the globe.

I had a lot of fun reading Blood Sick Vampire. Serrano has a gift for snappy dialogue, and his characters have a quirky wit about them. The way Cain and his companions casually insult demons spawned from hell with so much bravado is pretty amusing. I also appreciated the use of flashbacks to show the origins of the many different demons and vampires. The bureaucracy of hell is rather interesting, as punishments for failures seem to range from simply more hell to oblivion. The spiritual themes in the book follow a simple “good” versus “evil” formula, with the vampiric heroes using a little gray area in between.

Technically, Blood Sick Vampire suffers from a few issues. A solid proofreader would help with many punctuation and grammar mistakes. There’s also a section of three chapters that repeat themselves starting with “Cain Confronts Mmbyu” on page 96. Technical issues aside, J.E. Serrano weaves an entertaining tale. Much of the story reads like bible verses or old fables, which contrasts sharply with the modern dialog. I found this to be more charming than jarring.

Blood Sick Vampire is an unconventional twist on Biblical fiction and vampire stories. Readers will be entertained by the well-developed characters and unforgettable dialogue. It is the perfect book if you are looking for that “something different” to sit down with and go on an exciting adventure.

Acts of the Women

After Jesus’ crucifixion, the women in author Patrick W. Andersen’s cast of characters take center stage, influencing the plot and world history through their teaching, diplomacy, and public relations abilities. As a result, Acts of the Women is a different take on the Bible. As the author himself states, “In the decades after the crucifixion, men gave speeches and wrote history books about their own noble deeds. But women did most of the work.”

The book additionally begins with a “cast of characters” page that is very helpful for those with limited knowledge of the Bible. Those familiar with the Bible will recognize many of the characters and events. Still, Andersen’s well-developed plot and exciting spin on the material will keep even those religiously inclined engaged. I personally benefited from having this list of characters easily accessible to keep me oriented while reading.

The story opens with the crucifixion of Jesus and the aftermath from the perspective of the women who helped him. The disciples are also in disarray, having scattered after Jesus’ arrest. However, they soon reunite and begin to regroup. The women in the story, including Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Rachel, and Susanna, are instrumental in this process. The women themselves know this, often giving men the “Stare” and even stating, “The men did most of the talkin’, but the women did all of the work.” Andersen weaves together biblical events with his own flair and imagination, making the stories come alive. He has an effortless, fluid writing style that makes the book a quick read. The characters are well-developed and likable, making it more interesting to see how their faith sustains them through their hardships.

Andersen does an excellent job of making the material accessible and engaging. He brings new life to familiar characters and events. His writing style is clear and concise, with short chapters and an easy-to-follow plot.

Acts of the Women is an intriguing work of fiction based on historical events and biblical accounts. It provides a new perspective on Christianity and its origins. This well-written and enjoyable book is ideal for anyone interested in the Bible or history.

Could This Be Real?

D. W. Eamer Author Interview

The Satan Gene follows two people that are searching for the code that will rewrite human DNA before those that want to use it for evil get it first. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

Initially, my story outline was crafted to connect as many conspiracy theories together as I could, coupled with a foundational story behind the New World Order and their ultimate goal of controlling the world. Surprisingly (and scarily enough), I was able to connect many of the conspiracies together into what I would call a master New World Order conspiracy.

The heavy religious overtones came into play along the way as many of the conspiracy theories I studied touched on them directly or indirectly. From there came the idea of basing the story around the Book of Revelation, the Second Coming of Christ, and those who sought to bring it about in order to become supreme rulers.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

The core essence of the book is founded on the mission of exposing the secret plans of those who seek to attain control over humanity whether by consent or conquest. It’s, of course, fiction, but it applies to real world events we are living today.

What research did you do for this novel to get it right?

The research portion of the creation of The SATAN Gene was incredibly exhaustive because I wanted to be as authentic as possible, forcing the reader to ask the question at the end: could this be real? It took a better part of three years to get it all together, and then approximately two years to tie everything up neatly into a linear and coherent story that flowed well. I love doing research, especially anything pertaining to religion, history, and archaeology, so the process was not really labour-intensive for me. In fact, it was probably the most enjoyable part of the process as I touched on countless historical subjects and modern technology. It was definitely a wonderful learning experience. In the end, it allowed me to write the type of novel that I love to read.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I have two more planned that will be Gareth Blackwell adventures! Seeing as the research is quite daunting for both, it may take some time before the next one hits the shelves. At the earliest, I suspect the second one will be published in two years, although I am not a big fan of rushing to produce a book. I firmly believe that each story needs to be high quality, and I don’t think that fast-tracking a story just to capitalize on popularity is the way to go. I want to deliver a polished product. What can the reader expect? More codes, secret societies, diabolical villains, church mysteries, double-crosses, and surprising twists!

The seals of the Scroll of Prophecy are about to be broken, unleashing Satan on Earth.

A modern-day deep state European group with mysterious historical roots dating back before the time of Jesus Christ is urgently bent on implementing a diabolical crime against humanity in order to fulfill a two thousand year old biblical prophecy giving them the power to become the divinely chosen monarchs, ruled by a supreme god-man king on earth.

Tracked by the group’s merciless killer who believes himself to be a direct descendent of the leader of an ancient group of assassins that existed two thousand years ago, quantum biology doctoral student Abriana Stratton and former priest Gareth Blackwell join forces in a perilous race against the clock to find and decipher a trail of codes left by a brutally murdered government scientist.

Within his cryptic texts are the clues to the secret hiding places of the components from a stolen military application that could stop the apocalyptic events of an ancient prophecy.

Or bring them about.

The SATAN Gene

The Satan Gene is a historical fiction novel by author D. W. Eamer. It combines mystery and thriller elements in which the protagonist of the story, Gareth Blackwell, searches all over Italy for clues and specific USB devices. The information combined within those USB devices is going to wreck the whole world. They contain the coordinates of The SATAN Gene program launch codes. It is a program that modifies the human DNA and can activate certain biological phenomena by sending specific frequencies. The instruction and information for all the processes are contained in those USB drives. The dying professor Ashcroft hands over the clues and one piece of the device to Abriana Stratton, who later meets Gareth Blackwell to commence on this quest of solving the clues and retrieving the complete program.

It is a fast-paced mystery and escapes a thriller with a killer constantly behind them. They are later on joined by the DARPA chief and other officials, but as they begin to unravel the clues, more secrets tumble out.

The writing style of this book is interesting and fact-filled. The author has talked about symbols, motifs, and religious allusions throughout the book. The clues were also based on the symbols and motifs related to religion and several religious sects and cults. The protagonist Gareth Blackwell is well-versed in bringing out the historical and symbolical importance of a particular symbol or action. It is interesting to read about all these symbols while staying on a continuous chase that might destroy the world if gone wrong.

There are a lot of characters who remain in focus throughout the book. The special attention remains on Blackwell, shared by Abriana Stratton for a large part of the book. The DARPA chief also gets his fair share of attention in the plot along with the assassin Sicarius. How the author has interlinked the past information and the story’s parallels are brilliant. The story moves smoothly and is fast-paced while pausing to explain the religious and pagan symbols in great detail. The book reminds me of the writings of Dan Brown, except the intervention of local police or security remains minimal in this book.

The twists and turns in the story keep the readers on edge. The sudden revelations and the chase through Rome and Italy lend an insight into the beauty and religious relevance of the city. The symbols and clues solved by Gareth Blackwell provided deep insight into the overall religious history of Christianity. This book does contain some gruesome details about violence and murders that occur, with no lack of visual details. It might be upsetting to some readers.

The Satan Gene is a riveting novel that fans of thriller and religious mystery will enjoy. The action and adventure of the chase, the mystery of solving the clues, and the thrill of evading the killer will have readers on edge and looking for the next clue.

Á Deux

At one time or another, we have all questioned our purpose. The story of Job is one of the first recorded instances of humans posing these same questions. In addition, it is likely the most well-known account of an exchange between friends that goes far beyond the standard existential crisis. Job and his friends tried their best to understand the ways of God as they questioned why humans are allowed to suffer. The story of Job contains everything from sarcasm and rhetorical questions to innuendo and what amounts to a battle between God and Satan.

A Deux, by author Alexey L. Kovalev, is a new and fresh take on the biblical story of Job. The dialogue between Job and his friends and God takes on a whole different look in Kovalev’s work. Prefaced by a thorough prologue, this book exists as an exchange between Job and God as it would happen today–quite a modern spin on the age-old tale.

I was blown away by the beauty of Kovalev’s style of writing. What looks on paper like a straightforward narrative is actually a dialogue that reads like the most intricate of poetry. The flow of the text is phenomenally stunning, peppered with modern references and deep, philosophical discussions that read more like an exchange between two strangers seated on a bench waiting on a long-departed bus.

There is almost a comical banter at times between the two main characters. Expecting a more serious tone, I was pleasantly surprised at their familiarity. What could easily have been made into a very difficult read has been shaped into a much easier and more pleasurable read. 

I was expecting a much different read when I picked up this book and ventured into the text. Instead, I was truly overwhelmed and surprised at the unique take on Job’s story. This book, written primarily as a dialogue, will capture readers’ attention and keep them enthralled from cover to cover. In addition to creating a conversational tone, Kovalev has also given readers a trip through history. It’s a truly fantastic read from beginning to end.

A Deux will entertain anyone who enjoys reimaginings of Bible stories. In addition, this modern telling will make the traditional story more accessible to younger readers and more relatable to a modern audience.
