Product Description

In Katherine Silva’s supernatural horror, VOX, the first of a planned quintet in the Monstrum Chronicles, readers follow three protagonists as they try to overcome their own disturbed pasts and their growing uncertainties of the future.Since before man existed, lilitu, the creatures that vampire myths are based on, have reigned in the Erebus, a dark shadow realm that exists on a different plane from the world we humans know. Torrent, an Elder lilitu, having committed a multitude of crimes including burning a human city to the ground, is on the run from his sire, a powerful bloodline leader named Citius, who wants nothing more than to see Torrent destroyed. But there is a method to Torrent’s madness. He is on a quest to change time itself; to go back and amend the events that made him into the creature of darkness that he now is. His new attempt at this brings him to England where he meets Eileen, a tragic Opera-soprano who has been newly released from the Kauffman Psychiatric Institute. Having lost her husband in a gruesome incident eight months ago, Eileen is clutching to a thread of promise that the future will hopefully hold something better for her. But when she returns to her home in the rural English countryside, she finds not serenity; but a new terror.Similarly in the United States, Sean, a high school English teacher, has begun hearing strange voices. On a trip to the hospital to get evaluated, he is intercepted by a lilitu Councilman, Reid, who saves him from an attack by the obscure group, Spiros, Incorporated. The Councilmen, judges of lilitu law in the Erebus, have been informed of a plot by Spiros that aims to forever alter lilitu society with damaging repercussions for the human race. When Sean’s girlfriend is taken by Spiros, Sean resolves to get her back, no matter what the cost will be to his own life or that of his new associates. As each character’s story weaves into another with twists of betrayal, sacrifice, and murder, each of them will uncover a darker side of themselves in order to get what they seek and through their ordeals, discover what it truly means to live.
