About the eBook:
WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN THE HUNGER BEGINS.
Yesterday, they ruled a lonely monastery on a deserted island in the Pacific Northwest. Tonight, an entire city is theirs.
They are the New Ones, a thoroughly modern breed of vampires terrifyingly unlike the blood-feeding Ancients who came before them. Now Seattle burst with the unholy presence of nocturnal predators, for whom the hot, salty liquid from their living victims means not only survival, but superhuman power-and indescribable ecstasy. Those they feed on rise again. They climb from beneath darkened streets, driven by a raging thirst that can never be sated.
The humans who hurt them say there is nothing in this world that can’t be destroyed. They’re wrong…
Patrick Whalen grew up in Washington state. Following high school, he and three friends joined the army and went into the paratroopers. After a three year stint in the army, he enrolled in college and eventually obtained his Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Washington. He went on to work in Child Protective Services in Tucson, Arizona, and then went to work in California for an agency which serves the developmentally disabled and mentally ill. While working at the agency, Mr. Whalen wrote four successful horror novels. Eventually, working full time and writing proved to be too much and he put writing aside. He now resides in a small town in California, and is retired and thinking about taking up writing again. He is enjoying retirement and spends most of his free time trying to teach the golden retreiver he adopted from the local pound how to fetch. Currently the dog's attitude seems to be,'you threw it. You go get it.'
