RE has a complicated history and many, many layers. I wanted to include it here so as to not put into question its important role in my journey as a writer and as an illustrator. The story still has its own part of the website and I don't want to repeat what's there.
Dealing with an oppressive chain of losses in the lives of Julian Evereaux and his family isn't easy when they must accept the protection of Danyil Kaehn, a vampire that has haunted Julian's memories for years. Confronting the dakness with Danyil means fighting to be spared from the bloodthirsty threat of a possessed, mentally disturbed vampire, and in this battle, old prejudices and fears must be overcome.
