Vampire-themed Novel : Eternal Death
A small group of seemingly ordinary people is all that stands in the way of a sinister plan
that could destroy the world as we know it in author Lily Strange's horror novel,
"Eternal Death, Book One: Lost Beneath the Surface."
Boulder, CO, Mar 11, 2008 - A small group of seemingly normal individuals is faced
with safeguarding the future of the material universe from a megalomaniacal vampire in
Lily Strange's new must-read horror novel, "Eternal Death, Book One: Lost Beneath the
This book tells the story of how a race of malevolent vampires attempts to refashion the
very laws of existence-in a way that could mean the end of the world as we know it-as
they seek to reclaim their former glory on earth.
Against this backdrop, an acclaimed novelist named Terry Bruckham is awakened by
disturbing memories, as well as a gathering awareness of her own past. Along with those
close to her, she begins to rouse to the sinister plan. Now, the group must rise up and
wage a battle for the future of the universe even as they discover the shocking truth
behind mankind's history. It's a battle both in the material world and the various realms
inhabited by these magnificently powerful gods and spirits, including the mysterious
Dreamlands, home to the sleeping and the earthbound dead.
A wide-ranging, multi-voiced work, "Eternal Death, Book One: Lost Beneath the
Surface" is told through flashbacks, excerpts from books written by the novel's
protagonists as well as traditional storytelling. And it weaves a plethora of references that
will be familiar to fans of the genre-including Pagan deities, Judeo-Christian angels and
demons, and the creatures of H.P. Lovecraft-to create a richly imagined world at once
horrifying and captivating.
In addition to providing horror fans with a terrifyingly good read, "Eternal Death"
provides a way to give back. Fifty percent of the profits from book sales will be donated
to the World Health Organization's mental health division, states Strange. The decision to
make a contribution to the group was spurred by the book's unique collaborative origin.
According to Strange, a ghost writer-in the literal sense-who began communicating
with her in late 2005 played a critical role in the book's development. Because the
ghost writer committed suicide, Strange says, she hopes to stop others from making the
