Genisis Of The Hunter – Book II

Genisis Of The Hunter – Book II

September 1, 2010 in Feature, Joshua's Work

This is the novel where any secrets and mysteries left unexplored will be resolved. It is the exhilarating, captivating, action-charged sequel to Genesis of the Hunter: Book 1, where the true climax of the story is reached – an unforgettable ending that, I hope, will leave the reader with a pounding heart and an even greater love for this epic, powerful story. 

Once a sentinel of Berwick, England he is now both something more and something less than the man he once was. His new nature is strange and foreign to his loved ones and even himself, and so he wanders the nights alone, finding new, albeit misguided and vengeful purpose in his life. He learns how to hunt the bestial, yellow-eyed, white-skinned things that he has become so like, and decimates their number, yet as the decades unfold, and he nearly untouched by the ravages of age, his understanding of the world and his place in it change.

With new ambition and knowledge that he gains from his experience, and from an arcane acquaintance, he sets his sights on the New World and there begins a new life.

He eventually makes New York his home and the using knowledge and wealth he has accumulated over the ages, he secretly establishes himself in the modern world. He allows a select few learn the secrets of his existence, the truth of what he is.  Still, an elitist syndicate with powerful and archaic ties discovers his existence, and his survival, even for him, becomes a race against time.

Genesis of the Hunter – Book I

Genesis of the Hunter – Book I

June 1, 2010 in Feature, Joshua's Work

Genesis of the Hunter is one of those novels whose gripping suspense, action and mystery can be ruined by spoilers; so, for those prospective readers who would like the general tip of the iceberg without having the story compromised, this brief synopsis is for you.  Still, I would suggest, that if you desire to have the purity of this novel’s ‘unknown’ intact, just pick it up and give it a read. Either way, I hope you enjoy.

The world that cradles humankind has yet to be completely understood, and much of its archaic beginnings linger within our minds upon a plane of postulates, mystery and uncertain truth, the voice of myth from times long past. Yet in these legends there are often glimmers of truths, truths that are dismissed as mere lore because of the inconceivable reality they might otherwise represent. 

This is such a story: the origin of a legend, one that spans from distant past to the present day – the origin of the vampire. 

Alluring, thought provoking and brimming with riveting action and suspense, this is the dark, epic chronicle of a man changed in nature and body.  Once a sentinel of a prosperous settlement, he is forced into a nocturnal existence, and instinctually compelled in ways that he fears will cost him his very humanity.  He discovers he has gained an unnatural longevity, and while the ages pass him without truly leaving their mark upon him, the modern world develops around him. 

His existence is eventually discovered by the elites of the West, an old organization whose siege even he shall be hard pressed to survive.
