The Devil's Advocate (Trilogy of the Blood Curse, Book One) Gerbod Fleming (Author)
When madness seizes the world's vampires, relentless hunger gnaws at them. But no matter how many victims they drain, withered vampires litter the shadows. There is opportunity in this chaos. As the Masquerade crumbles around Owain, which power will he serve? Or will he serve himself?
Everything takes place in Atlanta, where we get to see our old friends Benison, Hanna, Benjamin, Thelonius, and others before the Clan novel series. Owain, though not directly involved in the local politics, does carry some weight around with his experience. When the Blood Curse hits, Owain is torn between his duties to the local Prince, and his own personal feelings. In the end, the world begins to crumble around Owain as he discovers old emotions, long buried in his cold dead heart. The novel jumps around quite a bit between other vampires and other cities, this to give the reader the impression of how far the Blood Curse is spread. A few of the other stories begin to weave into the main story towards the end.
