Philosophy steeped in Hell, history by way of The Twilight Zone, and real life trapped like a bug under the lens of an unforgiving microscope... welcome to the world of Alexios. A 7,000-year-old nosferatu takes a look at life and serves it straight up and unvarnished, taking no prisoners and telling it like it is. Philosopher, raconteur, and smart aleck in equal measures, Alexios shares his pitch-black world view and expounds on everything from life and death, religion and politics to love, friendship, family, and homemade porn. Real life becomes true horror and every day is the nightmare. His words may unsettle you, even horrify you, but in your darkest, most private thoughts you just might admit, “He’s right.” Nothing is sacred. No one is safe.
"Wow--this book is spellbinding from the first page to the last. A unique cross between Mephisto, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and the Spike character from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Alexios wanders through a disenchanted and often melancholy world with the tool kits of an historian, a philosopher, an anthropologist, and a sociologist. Alexios's observations are sharp-eyed, clear-headed, and often, in spite of their demonic cynicism, funny, moving, and even poignant. I can't wait for the sequel--or for this amazing book's translation into a graphic novel. This book is not to be missed!"
"If you are looking for a new take on the vampire genre, look no further. Alexios is, obviously, a very complex, intelligent, individual, who will make you question long held beliefs, with his provocative, and frequently, unsettling observations about life, and he delivers these uncomfortable truths , in an often jarring, yet humorous manner. One of the most original books I've come across, in a very long time, I will never again look the same way at someone who sits next to me on a bus, or passes me on the street. A must read. I cannot wait for the movie!"
"This dose of reality is laced with arsenic and I couldn't get enough! Historical fact, social commentary and fiction brilliantly intertwined into one fascinating vignette after another. It will make you laugh, cry, and most of all think. It will take you to the most frightening place on earth; you're very own soul!"
"Great read, a nice departure from the typical kiddie sci/fi fantasy reads that are popular these days. Highly recommended!"
