Desperation and addiction collide in this twisted yet riveting tale of love, despair, and dark power in the manner of Anne Rice or Stephen King. Life and death reside in the hands of brilliant surgeon Aulen, until he discovers his blood can heal. A madness of determination takes him down to the blue lights of the harrowing underworld catacombs, to play angelus and savior to the dejected. Ruining his life and turning him into one of the haunted, Aulen descends into the pleasurable sting of the needle, spilling his blood to save the fallen. And when he surrenders completely to his blood, is there any saint in the underworld's darkness who can redeem him?
This dark fantasy romance from new award winning epic fantasy and dark fantasy writer Jean Lowe Carlson explores sacrifice and love via sex and magic, in the style of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel Series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. With a deep storytelling style similar to Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles and a flavor of fairytale magic, the Three Days of Oblenite dark fantasy trilogy is typical of Ms. Carlson’s style, of writing complex and emotional fantasy and sci fi for adults.
