A Dutch merchant marine arrives in India in 1612 and is abducted by a mysterious stranger with a horrible secret who claims he is the sailor's immortal teacher and lover from a past life. The two trek together into the Himalayas in search of a secret shrine of the Goddess where the young man is to undergo a blood ritual that will transform him into an immortal. Although aided by supernatural beings, they face a terrifying foe who seems bent on foiling their purpose. They meet many colorful characters and witness miracles, both beautiful and bizarre. Reincarnation and destiny reunites old friends, lovers, and foes over three centuries. Their love faces the ultimate test, and the suspenseful conclusion unravels a mystery that none but the ancient immortal, Kedar Baba, suspected. Hindu philosophy and mythology are woven throughout this uplifting homoerotic adventure that takes the vampire genre to a new level.
A very unusual find. This book contains an amazing amount of information about the Hindu spirituality. If you are a gay vampire fan and interested in Eastern mythology, this book is highly recommended.
While the action is very slow moving, I recommend this book (and find it refreshing) because of its unique take on the vampire mythos.
There is no sex in this book, but it is very homoerotic. However the pace, and the amount of description involving Indian mythology, may leave some vampire fans cold.
