I very much enjoyed this book, in fact I could not put it down! I felt it moved at a very good pace and was very exciting. I hope I will be able to read other works this author has written. ( )

Book description
Victor Decimus, who has lived as a vampire for over two thousand years, is hunted by the Dark Kingdom and decides to leave his lover and New York for a fresh start in New Orleans, but in the Crescent City, Victor will be forced to face off against the local priests and the Dark Kingdom, who fear that Victor will become a "vampire maker."
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312363192, Hardcover)

Victor Decimus has been a vampire for over 2,000 years. Once a Roman Legionnaire, for millennia Victor has remained a step or two ahead of rivals, would-be executioners, and the mysterious Dark Kingdom, which sets the rules for vampires' existence. Having left New York and his lover Paul Lewis - the vampire he made then abandoned to escape the vengeance of the Dark Kingdom, Victor sets himself up again - with his thrall - in New Orleans. 
But in New Orleans, his thrall becomes the point of a new, larger conflict. On the one hand, a local priest seeks to break Victor's hold over the thrall; on the other, the Dark Kingdom fears that Victor is going to become a Vampire Maker - one who continually creates new vampires, while refusing to take his place on the next plain of existence and thus creating an imbalance in the powers of the universe. And between both walks Victor, determined to have his own way, exerts control and remains defiant to the end.
