Vigil (paid link)
Mankind has fallen to darkness and a new breed rules the earth. The age of the vampire has begun.
Few survived the fall of man. Those who remain to witness the darkening of the world live by the gun or live in fear. There is no middle ground.
The cities lay in ruin after the last war and vampires have inherited the blasted remnants. Some will not cower in the night. They fight because there is nothing left to them, and they fight without hope of peace or victory.
In a war with no end, in a land without succour, what chance do the survivors have? The war was lost as soon as it was begun. But there is still the past…and perhaps, a future.
And through it all, one man stands vigil.

Cleopatra the Great tells the story of a turbulent time and the extraordinary woman at its center. A polymath monarch, she was also a potent combination of traditionalist and innovator, astute enough to realize what was necessary for Egypt’s continued prosperity and sufficiently ruthless to allow nothing to stand in her way.
Yet our understanding of Cleopatra has been obscured by Roman propaganda, Shakespearean tragedy, and Hollywood glamour. Cleopatra the Great pieces together the pharaoh’s ancient world with details about her massive library and infamous banquets, her relationships with both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, and her skillful use of fashion and style to further her ambitions and her mystique.
