Free Book Friday: Vampireology


I have a treat for you today!

For this week's Free Book Friday I have 2 copies of Vampireology to give away!

Vampireology Book Description:

Explore (if you dare) the true history of the Fallen Ones — and follow the fate of a 1920s investigator lured by a beauty with violet eyes.

Long before the term vampire was born, long before Bram Stoker fictionalized this being’s ways, blood-drinking demons were banished to Earth by Michael’s host of Angels, or so the Bible describes. Now this rich, mesmerizing resource, written in 1900, sheds light on what happened hence to the three vampire bloodlines — especially the tortured souls known as the Belial. Interspersed are booklets, flaps, and letters between a young paranormal researcher who discovered the book in the 1920s and an oddly alluring woman who seeks his help.

Among the phenomena explored are:

* vampires’ genealogical origins, attributes, and range

* myths about the making of vampires

* secrets of vampires’ powers and shape-shifting skills

* tips for spotting vampires, protecting oneself, and fighting back

* case studies of famous vampires — and vampire hunters — through history

* a shocking overview of vampires "living" among us


I've had the chance to check this book out and it is awesome. If you've never had the chance to see one of the ology books you are missing out. Made like a scrapbook with notes, letters, and all kinds of things that fold out, open up and are added to the pages - it is a a treasure trove of vampire info that contains a storyline.

It really is like looking through someone's scrapbook, their notes and personal thoughts, letters, everything about their research. I love it- loved it. My daughter absolutely went nuts for it and stole my copy. My husband had the chance to glance through it and said "wow this is neat".

Vampire fans young and old, old and new are going to adore this book. It is a must have for all vampire lovers, it is both a great resource and novelty item combined that would make a lovely addtion to your book collection.

Would you like a copy?
