Tridium Press is pleased to announce the e-publication of the explosive novel, THE UNDEAD (RISE OF THE DESPOSYNI) by Richard Bertematti. The Amazon Kindle version is available for only $3.99 at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EP600HS.
THE DA VINCI CODE, although a bestseller, got it all wrong. There is no proof that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and fathered children. What is true is that members of Jesus’ immediate family, descendants of King David, known as the Desposyni, ruled the early Church until disappearing from history in the fourth century. But what if those royal descendants survived to our time?
THE UNDEAD takes place in 1902—the twilight of the Gilded Age. A ship, its crew decimated, docks in New York City carrying strange cargo: a long, heavy box bound with chains. An ancient vampyre has arrived seeking the source of an unlimited power.
When young society belle Madison Blanchford becomes the vampyre’s next target, her suitor, Doctor Jordan Moore joins with a defrocked Anglican priest and a former soldier to save her. In the process they discover that only Madison, heir of an ancient secret, may possess the key to stop the vampyre and ultimately save the world.
Horror, history and the occult combine in an unforgettable tale of Gothic suspense. THE UNDEAD is the first book in a planned trilogy.
