It was the custom then for men such as myself, well bred and hopelessly in debt, to perform a tour of the Continent... I wanted to sammple new pleasures, new sensations and delights...

Legendary poet Lord Byron comes to life with incediary brilliance in this spellbinding blend of gothic imagination and documented fact that paints and unforgettable portrait of the nineteenth-century romantic genius as the world's most formidable vampire.

Wander 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 gensius 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 his diversions, delicious and cruel, are suffused with the rich scent of doom. Byron's gift is also his torment: an all-consuming thirst that withers life at the root, damning all those he loves...
