Genre: Fantasy Horror
The plague of 1918 A.D:
The mortal world is in a state of devastation.
A woman wakes up in an abandoned temple of Kali, the goddess of darkness, in an ancient city of Gaya.
She does not know where she is.
She does not remember the events leading to this.
She only hears a familiar voice of a tormented man who has haunted her dreams.
He tells her a story – of a time of souls and suffering, of immortality and gods, of life and death.
This, he says, is Mesopotamia.
THE SAMSARIC is a fantasy-horror novel based on ancient vampirism, history and mythology. Set in an era widely considered to be the cradle of civilization, it is a story of once-powerful mortal races and ancient gods and goddesses to excite and inspire.
Review: Set in ancient Mesopotamia, "The Samsaric" deals with two immortal beings, and their quest for turning a mortal into one of their one, a God of sorts. I don't read a lot of vampire books because I'm slightly tired of the subject but this didn't seem like a regular vampire book...and thank God, it isn't. It's actually quite original, and I enjoyed the story and characters.
