United States of America – WEBWIRE

John Davies’ new book, “The First Vampire” will be available for free download in the Amazon Kindle Store for one more day on September 18th.
In his riveting debut novel, “The First Vampire,” John Davies provides an alarmingly plausible explanation of why and how the first human was transformed into a vampire, against a backdrop of factual Eastern European history. The historical insights clear up many of the myths and misconceptions of the Dracula legend.
In 1414, a priest and gifted singer from the Curtea de Arges region of Wallachia unknowingly set a chain of events in motion which had the potential to cause catastrophic ramifications for centuries after.
Forty-eight years later, Vlad Dracula returned home to Curtea de Arges after a great battle in which he slaughtered fifteen thousand Muslims. Triumph turned to tragedy when he learned that his turncoat brother, Radu, was lurking in the region. Dracula was about to face his greatest nemesis ever.
Twenty-first century, reluctant college sophomore, Kristi Johnson, is in a desperate race against time to save her family from complete disintegration. Her father commits the ultimate unspeakable act, and Kristi is forced to find answers immediately. Out of nowhere comes an unexpected possible solution—in the form of her unusual classmate, Alex.
The paths of the priest, the warlord and the college kid are set on the collision course from hell in this fascinating blend of history, myth and undying love.

The First Vampire” has a 4.7 star rating on Here’s what some people are saying:
“John Davies really nails it with his first novel. Creating believable characters and weaving the narrative together across the centuries, the narrative never falters. As an Australian reader, I could really appreciate his grasp of modern American speech patterns and how he contrasts these with the Medieval dialogue. He fully utilizes deep expertise in a wide variety of fields to deliver a rattling good yarn.” – Paul Howland
“Mr. Davies is a Renaissance Man in workingman’s usage of that term. He can spell-bind an audience with his booming voice...compose a usable film score on the fly...and spin really scary tales about freshwater crocs in sub-tropical Australia. The screenwriters of the ’TWILIGHT’ series could’ve used this book to punch up their flabby scripts, had it then been available!” – William Goldstein
