Children of the Eighth Day
Mark Graves, author
John Jones is an average teenager living an ordinary life in Savannah, GA. A single act of teenage mischief, breaking into the empty house across the street, introduces him into a dark reality that he thought only existed on late-night television, a world where vampires are real, and they kill without remorse to satisfy their lusts. John discovers the personal journals of Alexander McGill, a vampire who resists the unnatural desires of blood lust and fights to protect humans from domination by immortals. John refused to believe Alexander's stories until he is kidnapped off the street and is only saved from a savage death by Alexander. After his brush with death, John and his mother are caught up in the fight to destroy a vicious band of vampires before they can complete their plan to rule all mortals. In the battle between good and evil, not all the lines are clear. Only a desire to retain a piece of his soul keeps Alexander driven to save the world of humans from becoming slaves to the immortals, no matter the cost.
