Their growing friendship coupled with strange events lead him to uncover Brogio’s inconceivable secret. Brogio is a vampire, the very first vampire.

This is not your normal vampire series... If you are one of those individuals who has yet to read the Snow Blood Series, this will be a great start...

Absolute Perfection-Must Read. Carol's style of weaving a story draws you into the book. You're not just reading, you find yourself answering characters, or running with them as they hunt, or fight, "she's that good!" If there is one book you don't want to miss, it's First Blood Son!

Kane walked with his hands behind his back, pacing in front of the fire. “So, somewhere inside of you, you wanted me to learn all there is to know about you. Help me to better understand how you were cursed.”
 Brogio hung his head. His voice was little than a whisper. “I fell in love with Selene, a maiden in Apollo’s Temple at Delphi when I went for a reading with the Oracle. I stole her heart as well. The cursed god wanted her for himself. Ever since then, all of the gods have been my enemy.”
“Selene? This is the woman you pine for?”
“Selene is more than just a trifle.” Brogio’s eyes flared red.
Kane raised his hands in supplication. “I meant no offense.”
Brogio leaned back in his chair. “Artemis tricked us.  She stole Selene from me.”
“You fear I would suffer the same fate?”
“I would never let that conniving deity trick me again.”
Kane remained silent. How many years had Brogio been alone? How many centuries? What had time done to his heart? His mind? “You long for a companion.”   
            Brogio said nothing.
“All the more reason to make me like you.” Kane stopped pacing. “If we are the same, you will be able to trust me to keep your secret.”
            Brogio stood. He took Kane by the shoulders and looked deeply into his eyes. “Are you sure this is what you want?”
            “More than anything. Yes. Yes, I’m ready.”
             Without hesitation, the vampire’s eyes blazed red as his fangs dropped. He embraced the handsome young man and latched onto his neck. Kane’s brain went numb from the pain.
