“Reader, I ate him.”
YOU’RE THE LAST. I’M SORRY. THE END IS COMING.
For two centuries Jacob Marlowe has wandered the world, enslaved by his lunatic appetites and tormented by the memory of his first and most monstrous crime. Now, the last of his kind, he knows he can’t go on. But as Jake counts down to his demise, a violent murder and an extraordinary meeting plunge him straight back into the desperate pursuit of life.
“Like an updated version of Dracula, only for werewolves, and as rewritten by Bret Easton Ellis.”

“Playfully brainy… wry, world-weary Jake Marlowe would make a fabulous dinner companion. Just not during a full moon”
Justin Cronin, Author Of The Passage
new York Times
“Loaded with beautifully constructed lunatic ravings … A sublime study in literary elegance. It is bloody (and) brilliant.”
independent On Sunday
“A magnificent novel. A brutal, indignant, lunatic howl. A sexy, blood-spattered page-turner, beautifully crafted and full of genuine suspense, that tears the thorax out of the horror genre to create something that stands rapturous and majestic and entirely on its own.”
