Waterstones Says

From the author of the bestselling Nevernight series comes a gripping new saga to sink your teeth into, as a lone warrior captured by victorious vampires tells his chilling, unputdownable tale. 

Shortlisted for The British Book Awards 2022 Fiction Book of the Year

From holy cup comes holy light;
The faithful hands sets world aright.
And in the Seven Martyrs’ sight,
Mere man shall end this endless night.

It has been twenty-seven long years since the last sunrise. For nearly three decades, vampires have waged war against humanity; building their eternal empire even as they tear down our own. Now, only a few tiny sparks of light endure in a sea of darkness.

Gabriel de León is a silversaint: a member of a holy brotherhood dedicated to defending realm and church from the creatures of the night. But even the Silver Order couldn’t stem the tide once daylight failed us, and now, only Gabriel remains.

Imprisoned by the very monsters he vowed to destroy, the last silversaint is forced to tell his story. A story of legendary battles and forbidden love, of faith lost and friendships won, of the Wars of the Blood and the Forever King and the quest for humanity’s last remaining hope:

The Holy Grail.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A gothic bloodbath that will leave any reader breathless. The story is a vast apocalyptic canvass, reminiscent of Justin Cronin's The Passage or even Stephen King's The Stand, yet Kristoff's work stands on its own ruthless merit as the opening gambit of a richer tale yet to unfold. I can't wait to return again to this rich, lush, and bloody world. Until then, read this book now!' - James Rollins

'A fine crafted tale, the pieces as meticulously interlocked as fine woodwork. A chilling new take on vampire lore and those who must battle that darkness. Empire of The Vampire looks fearlessly at how ruthless Good must become when confronted with unrelenting Evil' - Robin Hobb

'Brilliant and unputdownable, with tenderness and light bound into the bitter dark of a grim and fascinating world' - Laini Taylor

'This book is bloody brilliant' - V.E Schwab

“You may think you are over Vampires, but you are not.”

Before I give my review, a point to note is that I am not a fast reader. Currently I am reading a 300 page book that I am enjoying and it has so far taken me a week.

This is 720 pages (I received an advanced copy... More
