The Secret History of Lord Byron... Legendary poet Lord Byron comes to life with incendiary brilliance in this spellbinding blend of gothic imagination and documented fact that paints an unforgettable portrait of the nineteenth-century romantic genius as the world's most formidable vampire. Wandering in the mountains of Greece, Byron is drawn to the beauty of a mysterious fugitive slave; soon he is utterly entranced, and his fate is sealed. The supreme sensualist embarks on a life of adventure even his genius could not have foreseen; chosen to enjoy powers beyond those any vampire has ever known, Byron enters a dark, intoxicating world, traversing centuries of long-lost secrets, ancient arts, and scorching excesses of evil. But Byron's gift is also his torment: an all consuming thirst that withers life at the root, damning all those he loves... With its impeccable scholarship and breathtaking storytelling, THE VAMPYRE is a wonderful combination of fact and fantasy, both compelling and also strangely plausible...
