    Before vampires sparkled but after they were soulless monsters existing to prey on virginal girls in diaphanous white gowns, there was a time when the vampire was a tortured romantic figure A Byronic hero who did not enjoy the benefits of vampirism but considered it a dread curse There s still remnants of this figure in modern vampires but its heyday was a long time ago A distant mist

virginal girls in diaphanous white gowns, there was a time when the vampire was a tortured romantic figure A Byronic hero who did not enjoy the benefits of vampirism but considered it a dread curse There s still remnants of this figure in modern vampires but its heyday was a long time ago A distant mist enshrouded time when the economy was good, Goths were brooding loners rather than perky scientists on NCIS, and tabletop gaming was a thriving hobby Yes, I speak of the Nineties Despite being written in 2008, Eternal Vigilance by Gabrielle Faust is a throwback or homage perhaps to the days of Louis and Lestat A book which unironically talks about how being forced to drink the blood of the living, live forever, and look good doing it isn t quite the blessing True Blood has made it out to be Being as one of my fondest remembered tabletop gaming characters was an 8th Generation Ventrue businessman cursed by his undead existence, I m predisposed to like a book which radiates sincere love of pre commercialized modern Gothic romanticism Tynan Llywelyn is an archetypal vampire vampire in many ways A centuries old European who, if not a member of the nobility, still oozes Old World style and charisma Much like the Stuart Townsend version of Lestat, however, immortal life proved too much for him and he decided to opt out Using ritual magic, Tynan bound himself to a sarcophagus and decided to sleep forever That, alone, tells you something about Tynan s personality as he is not the sort of man who could do anything so mundane as commit suicide Unfortunately, or fortunately since otherwise there d be no story, Tynan isn t quite the magician he thought himself to be Awakening after a mere century of hibernation, Tynan finds the world has well and truly gone to pot There s robots, cyborgs, and other supertech existing beside grinding poverty and oppression A global human empire formed by renegade scientists, financiers, and other Illuminati types called the Tyst They have plunged the Earth into a decaying death spiral as their rule is too tyrannical to allow true peace They re opposed by the Phuree I believe it s pronounced Fury , who are back to Earth Luddites who want to destroy all that remains of modern civilization Given I m a die hard technocrat at heart, I viewed the latter as just as bad if not worse than the former The wildcard in this conflict is the vampire Council of Elders, who want to preserve their own power at all costs Tynan is a die hard iconoclast and as much a rebel as Lucifer himself, so one can guess he s not down with any of these groups I d tellbut that would spoil the books and I wouldn t deprive readers intrigued by the plot of this novel Weirdly, the setting reminded me a great deal of the Keepers, Hammerites, and Pagans from the Thief franchise On one hand you have the die hard champions of progress, the other has ecological terrorists, and you have the Keepers in between It s just the Keepers are vampires this time around with Tynan taking the role of Garrett the Thief Given I love the Thief franchise, this isn t a bad thing The backstory is a trifle unbelievable with the Tyst starting their rise to power byor less hacking the entire internet Thankfully, I have a high suspension of disbelief Gabrielle Faust has taken a great deal of time to develop the world and its mythology, starting from how vampires are created to how their society is set up It is a moody, decaying, broken world on the verge of a second Dark Age but possibly still salvageable It, of course, all rests on our hero to save the world or damn it When I mentioned Byronic antiheroes, I could have been very specifically talking about Tynan Tynan is not a traditional protagonist and has no interest in protecting humanity, stopping the Tyst, helping the Phuree, saving vampire kind or anything at all other than wallowing in his own guilt over various failures Many readers will find Tynan a frustrating protagonist due to his aggressive refusal of involvement in the plot He is, in a manner of speaking, an aggressive believer in nothing There s another quality some readers might be wary of and that s the fact the majority of the book takes place in Tynan s head I don t just mean the book is in 1st person, though it is, but Tynan has a habit of describing everything in long florid passages He often spends a good deal of chapters ruminating on eventsthan interacting with his fellow cast members who he uniformly despises even his supposed friends Readers will either find Tynan s constant mix of self aggrandizement and angst fascinating or annoying I found myself reminded of Lestat in a cyberpunk setting, so I lean to the former Gabrielle Faust is nice enough to remember Tynan s attitude is irritating to others, though, and the times when characters call him on it are always amusing I m reminded of managers who have to deal with particularly troublesome rock stars In conclusion, Eternal Vigilance is a callback to traditional Goth storytelling and attitudes Had Brandon Lee not had his life so tragically had his life cut short, he was the sort of fellow who d play an excellent Tynan If this is your cup of tea, I heartily recommend Eternal Vigilance If you are put off by almost Lovecraftian levels of poetic writing or heroes who embrace the punk element of Gothic Punk hard then consider yourself warned.8 10

    Originally published at Risingshadow.Eternal Vigilance From Deep within the Earth is the first book of the Eternal Vigilance series in which beauty, horror and gruesomeness meet each other with an explosive and unstoppable force It s a powerful beginning to an excellent vampire series that will most likely be considered a classic in the near future.I have to mention that I m glad I had a chance to read this vampire novel, because it s something different It was a pleasure to read this novel Originally published at Risingshadow.Eternal Vigilance From Deep within the Earth is the first book of the Eternal Vigilance series in which beauty, horror and gruesomeness meet each other with an explosive and unstoppable force It s a powerful beginning to an excellent vampire series that will most likely be considered a classic in the near future.I have to mention that I m glad I had a chance to read this vampire novel, because it s something different It was a pleasure to read this novel I haven t read anything this good and fresh since I finished reading Freda Warrington s A Taste of Blood Wine a few months ago I ve read a few good vampire novellas, but it s been difficult to find good vampire novels to read.Before I writeabout this novel, I must mention that I m difficult to please when it comes to vampire fiction, because I expect only the best from my vampire fiction In my opinion too many authors have written way too many young adult vampire novels and not enough vampire novels for quality oriented adult readers I can honestly say that I don t enjoy reading young adult vampire fiction at all, because I dislike reading about teenaged girls who fall in love with vampires and pine after them If I read vampire fiction, I expect to read a quality novel that has both depth and style in it That s why it was a relief to find out that this novel turned out to be an excellent vampire novel for adults and had a good and well written story.Eternal Vigilance From Deep within the Earth is a beautifully written novel about survival in a new kind of a world where the society has bitterly been divided by magic and technology It s a totally different kind of a vampire novel, because the author concentrates on writing about how the survival of the vampires is severely threatened by the Tyst and their plans to become immortal.Gabrielle Faust combines horror, fantasy and science fiction elements in a brilliant and surprisingly fluent and effortless way in this novel, and she has added plenty of depth to the story It s actually quite amazing that it s still possible to write this kind of original and compelling vampire novels, because many authors have already created their own visions of vampires, but Gabrielle Faust has fortunately succeeded in writing something fresh.I ve read quite a few vampire novels, so I can say that this novel clearly stands out among other novels because of its depth, freshness and genre bending nature I personally consider this novel to be one of the best postapocalyptical vampire novels I ve read to date In my opinion this novel differs from other similar novels in terms of beautiful and skillful writing and an original story that has depth in it.Here s a bit of information about the story In this novel the protagonist, Tynan Llywelyn, wakes up from deep sleep and wonders about the new and changed world around him, because he remembers a different kind of a world He remembers a world full of sounds, but now the world has grown silent and the landscapes have changed over the years The alien landscapes feel odd to him, but he wants to explore and understand what has happened and what s going on in the new world Tynan meets an old acquaintance, his maker, Seafra, and discusses with him about what has happened and how humankind has split into two groups the Tyst and the Phuree Soon he learns what kind of a role he has to play in the world and he must make a difficult decisionIt s great that Gabrielle Faust spends enough time to build Tynan as a character She gives him a thorough history and explains what has happened to him and why he feels the way he does about things and other characters She doesn t rush into action, which is nice, because rushing into action would ve ruined the story and its terrifying beauty.In my opinion Gabrielle Faust does an excellent job of desribing how Tynan feels about the happenings and also about himself The gracefully and fluently flowing prose highlights Tynan s life, his feelings, his inner struggle and his actions.I ll briefly mention that I found it interesting that Tynan had a cat called Dune It was interesting to read about him and Dune.One of the best things about this novel is that Gabrielle Faust has deserted all the basic clich s associated with vampire fiction and has transported vampires to a well realized postapocalyptical world where humans fight against each other and where vampires also have to fight for their existence.There s a beautifully disturbing and tense gothic atmosphere in this novel that almost borders on the line of being baroque in its lushness The foreboding atmosphere is wonderful and it immediately pulls the reader into the story.The postapocalyptical world in this novel is delightfully familiar yet exotic enough to attract the attention of readers The postapocalyptical landscapes, the deterioration of the city and the way the Earth reclaims itself over what man has built are described in evocative and lush details The author has imagined a stunningly original vision of a postapocalyptical future where mankind has created cyber organisms and uses elemental powers and spells.There s plenty of grittiness, eroticism and style in this novel The author s decriptions of how Tynan lures his victims to himself and feeds on them are both erotic and beautifully lyrical The violent scenes have been written extremely well.It s possible to say that Gabrielle Faust belongs to the same league of authors as Anne Rice and Freda Warrington, because she writes good and beautiful prose that resonates among readers who are interested in beautifully written vampire fiction Although I compare Gabrielle Faust to Anne Rice and Freda Warrington in this review, I must point out that she s a totally different kind of an author than these authors, because she writes postapocalyptical vampire fiction and adds intriguing fantasy and science fiction elements to the story.I give this novel full five stars on the scale from one to five stars, because it s something different and the prose is very good Because I ve always been fond of good stories, dark fantasy and well written prose, I was very impressed by this novel.Eternal Vigilance From Deep within the Earth is a boldly different, beautifully written and captivating vampire novel that offers entertainment for all who enjoy reading dark vampire stories that are full of originality and gothic splendour It s a quality novel if you ve overdosed on bland and mediocre vampire fiction, this novel is perfect antidote for you, because it s pure quality from start to finish.My final words are This novel is excellent, original and beautifully written vampire fiction for adults

    When Tynan wakes up after one hundred years of a self induced rest, the world is a different place everything the vampire once knew has been obliterated by a war raging for as long as he s been asleep An evil empire called the Tyst has taken hold of society and all its technologies, and its ruthless leader Cardone has plans to take his wicked reign even further by bringing forth a heinous vampire god called the Vicinus, threatening the lives of both human and vampire When Tynan is reluctantly When Tynan wakes up after one hundred years of a self induced rest, the world is a different place everything the vampire once knew has been obliterated by a war raging for as long as he s been asleep An evil empire called the Tyst has taken hold of society and all its technologies, and its ruthless leader Cardone has plans to take his wicked reign even further by bringing forth a heinous vampire god called the Vicinus, threatening the lives of both human and vampire When Tynan is reluctantly reunited the remaining few of his kind, he quickly learns that his unique abilities to absorb the life force and knowledge of those he feeds upon is the key to stopping Cardone s plans and saving what remains of the population But will Tynan fall into place as a hero or will he leave the world he despises to burn Eternal Vigilance From Deep Within the Earth is book one of the Eternal Vigilance series by author Gabrielle Faust, currently being re released through Permuted Press Book one sets up a surreal fantastical world that s rich in description Faust paints the apocalyptic landscape of Tynan s journey with lush gothic detail that s as stunning as it is harsh The story itself is well executed and no time is wasted in setting up the main conflict, Faust knows where she wants to take the reader and exactly how to get there.Tynan is our conflicted anti hero Faust offers a glimpse into his past, how the choices he made caused a rift between himself and the few remaining vampires in this new world Tynan, although strong willed, is incredibly selfish and juvenile He trusts no one, he s immature, he hates the world around him and those who cast him out centuries ago But there is still a tiny piece of humanity left within Tynan Whether it s from his aforementioned abilities or from something else, the humanity he so bitterly clings on to and the rest of his flaws make him arealistic character It does take a better part of the book to warm to Tynan and his attitude, but as the story progresses, it s easy to seeadmirable qualities start shining through and to picture the hero that may come into play in the sequels.From Deep Within the Earth is a smart take on an apocalyptic world where vampires and humans must join forces to stop an evil that threatens to end them all So if dark, gothic fantasy laced with vampires and the fight against technology is your thing or if you want to start a trilogy with no wait time for the sequels , give Eternal Vigilance a try You won t be disappointed

    Excellent first book in the Eternal Vigilance series Beautifully written Meant to be savored and not merely read Gabrielle s descriptions of a post apocalyptic world inhabited by mortals and vampires in a struggle between proponents of magic and those of technology appeal to all senses It is a must read for all fans of fantasy and horror literature Highly recommended.
