For Maximilian Smith, deciding to save two women from a group of drunken thugs was easy. When he?s mortally wounded in the process of rescuing the women, he finds himself with a much more difficult decision to make?
After waking up in the morgue, naked and perfectly healthy, Maximillian Smith begins a new life. Dead to the world of his birth, he must learn to live as a vampire, and that education leads him to a strange new world where all the old tales he?d been told were myths are true.
Maximillian finds himself amid an unrelenting war fought by goblins, trolls, elves, and fairies. Thrust into the middle of this global conflict, Max must defend the very people he came to beg for help? so that he can unlock the key to the stars beyond both their world and his.
?Definitely not your average vampire story, Destiny of the Vampire takes its protagonist–a charming military veteran who’s easy to root for–on a wild ride that is unexpected but somehow familiar at the same time. McClafferty draws together elements of military action and adventure as well as fantasy and magic to build a world where tried-and-true fantasy tropes play alongside the high-tech gadgetry of a sci-fi story.?

?When Max is stabbed and killed on a snowy street in Romania, he is saved by two women who turn him into a vampire. They tell him that he now has the power to travel between worlds, so he journeys to Aeyaqar, a land of magical beings that he soon learns has been taken over by an evil supreme leader. Max enlists a team he has worked with before on Earth, and together, they fight to restore peace to Aeyaqar. This is a story filled with fantastic creatures as well as action and strong, capable heroes.? Susie D., Proofreader, Red Adept Editing
