Vampires of the Scarlet Order is an action-adventure novel about an elite cadre of vampire mercenaries who have worked throughout history as pinpoint assassins. Under the command of Desmond, Lord Draco, the Scarlet Order was involved in wars with the Ottoman Empire, The French Revolution and even the conquest of the Americas. Now, at the dawn of the 21st century, vampires are too expensive, too untrustworthy, and frankly, too passé for governments to employ any longer. Nanotechnology can be employed to engineer more reliable super soldiers. What's a vampire to do?
Though Vampires of the Scarlet Order is first and foremost an action novel, it is also about fear. The problem of fear is that it corrupts even the best people. Fear can drive a well-intentioned individual to rash, frightening acts. Likewise, fear can drive leaders of the best nations to commit atrocities in the name of security. Few creatures understand fear as well as vampires. In Vampires of the Scarlet Order I invite you to view the world of the 21st century through the eyes of vampire mercenaries who have seen history itself unfold. You may be surprised at the world revealed.
"A novel with bite. An amalgam of Blade and The Name of the Rose with a touch of X-Files thrown in for good measure." Neal Asher, author of Gridlinked and The Skinner.
"We now have our very own Southwestern vampire lore and tradition thanks to the imagination and painstaking research of Summers." S. Derrickson Moore, The Las Cruces Sun-News.
"Worthy… the vampires form the Scooby-Doo gang to fight evil. They must infiltrate Los Alamos and rescue fellow vampires being used for government weapon's reasearch." Fred Cleaver, The Denver Post.
"Summers writes richly, making us care about and identify with the ultimate group of outsiders who band together to protect the human race from its destructiveness and ultimate lack of humanity... This is a fun book to sink your teeth into and a good addition to the libraries of those readers with a taste for inventive vampire fiction." Roy Van der Aa, The Ink.
