Description

The young Flavian, born a Metis, reborn a vampire during the last days of the Glided Age (a time when the city of Duluth, Minnesota was a sea of strangers and stranger accents, a mix of millionaires and migrant workers and women of ill repute). After taking ill, Flavian falls under the tutelage of a man he knows only as Ambrose, who tutors him in subjects relating to the classical studies during the dark hours of the night in the city's makeshift library. Later, while succumbing to an untreatable malady, he is educated on another means to an end of his inescapable expiry - one mythologized and romanticized and made an altogether laughable notion by the fictions of the day. Although, they are mere fairy tales and shadows of an even more terrifying truth - a tale of alienation, transformation, and eternal survival."show more
