The Hellgate Club (In Stores 2022)
Since the elimination of his lover fifty years ago, Jeremiah has been wandering from victim to victim and from and grave to grave, ignoring the society of vampires centered in the Hellgate Club in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. One night, however, he is summoned back to society by Monseigneur, the enigmatic leader. He is asked to prove his faithfulness to him by being commanded to do a “becoming,” that is, creating a vampire of Michael, one of Monseigneur’s favorites. That done, he is instructed to take to the new vampire to his long-vacated townhouse to train him in “the ways.” Inevitably, Jeremiah and Michael fall in love, which does not at all please the all-powerful Monseigneur. In the meantime, the Vamps are under assault by the secret quasi-governmental Agency 7. This organization seeks not only to eliminate vampires, but to do ghastly experiments on them to discover their secrets of eternal life. Join Jeremiah and Michael and their compatriots who do battle with the forces of evil and see if they can escape being turned into ashes in the ultimate place of punishment for vampires, The Perfidium.
