33 A.D. by David McAfee

Jerusalem, 33 A.D. The vampires of the era have long sought to gain a foothold into Israel, but the faith of the local Jewish population has held them in check for centuries.
When one of their own betrays them to follow a strange young rabbi from Galilee, the elders of the vampire race dispatch Theron, a nine hundred year old assassin, to kill them both.
The rabbi's name is Jesus. Killing him should be easy.

For a limited time, the following excerpts are included with the Kindle version of this book:

About The Author: David McAfee is the author of the vampire novels 33 A.D. and Saying Goodbye to the Sun as well as the horror novel, GRUBS. His next horror novel, The Gallows Tree, is scheduled to be released in October 2010. David is currently working on another vampire novel, BAIT, after which he will begin working on the oft-asked for sequel to 33 A.D.
David lives in Knoxville, TN with his wife, daughter, and a small army of loyal but dysfunctional pets. As of this writing, he and his wife are expecting their first child together, who will no doubt grow to be just as deranged as the rest of the McAfee clan.
God help us all.

Dawn's Review: The plot is interesting. Vampires in the time of Jesus. So I was intrigued. Though the story was not entirely what I was expecting, I was not dissapointed. Although we know the history of Christ and how his story ended, throughout the book you feel as though there can be some kind of change; some way the story could end differently. You know this isn't going to happen, but the story was so well written, it kept me going; kept the hope that something good would come of it. What we got was a self-awareness, perhaps even redemption for the characters involved. The story makes the reader stop and think, and that's what a good story does. I really enjoyed this one. I look forward to reading the continuation of this story!
