The saga of redemption and spiritual triumph readers enjoyed in Never Ceese continues in Forever Richard. Cassie Felts, graduate student and reluctant believer of such things as vampires and werewolves, couldn't be happier for Richard and Ceese Porter. Their curses lifted and after hundreds of years apart, they can now celebrate being brother and sister once more. Even Rodney, Cassie's college roommate and former nemesis, shares her relief. But will the faith that saved Richard and Ceese be enough to defeat the new evil that threatens them all? Cassie learns that Dr. Clayton Henderson, the corrupt stem-cell researcher, has acquired the vampire's curse and has managed to transfer it to Rodney's troubled, drug-addicted buddy Josh. Addict or vampire, Cassie can see Josh isn't handling his new cravings for blood any better than he did his old habit. Their best hope seems to be taking Josh to Richard's isolated country estate in England. There, Josh can learn to temper his desire to curse another while they try to figure out how to deal with the impossible-to-kill Dr. Henderson. Their mission becomes more complicated when they find a new vampire inhabiting Richard's castle, a malevolent werewolf stalking Ceese, and a long-lost relative who shows up carrying a sawed-off shotgun and an ancient knife he claims has supernatural powers. Will the faith that redeemed two lost souls before be enough to overcome the wicked forces that now threaten to destroy them all?

The second book in Sue Dent's Thirsting for Blood Series and has already earned a resounding review from The British Fantasy Society. It continues to appeal to general market horror readers as well as to many readers who favor narrowly targeted fiction from CBA/ECPA affiliated publishers.

Both Never Ceese and Forever Richard, the first two installments in Sue's Thirsting for Blood Series,  were nominated for the 2009 Pluto Award with Never Ceese moving on to the finals.

This was a pretty good book, I was actually surprised. A friend said she didnt like it at all but I decided to read it anyway. Its a Christian book, little scary. I read the whole book in 3 hours.

Couldn't put it down when I read it. A good example of Christian fantasy/horror done right.

You may see it by clicking on the link here! It will be worth your time to read it. With this series appealing to so many readers who favor narrowly targeted fiction put out by affiliated Christian publishers, reviews will seem to contradict. This one makes no bones about it and comes from a reader who understands and knows the differences in the two markets.       Enjoy! I know I did. :)

Their celebration of freedom is cut short when they realize Dr. Henderson has turned himself into a vampire using Richard's cursed blood. To make matters worse, Henderson has cursed one of their new friends and the only way they can help is to take him back to Richard's …
