The Acclaimed Underground Phenomenon returns with a BITE! Rominus: The Initiation is an award-winning epic chronicle of human history and a coming-of-age story about a poor and embittered young man named Julian Angelis who mysteriously loses his mother on the night of his 21st birthday when she is murdered in cold blood. Shortly after her death, he is taken in by an elite academy that clandestinely seeks to make him into a weapon and initiate him into vampirism. Little does Julian realize however that he is surrounded by his mother's killers who are all members of the Rominus Empire, a secret society of vampires that has mercilessly ruled over humanity since the fall of Atlantis. But when the academy forsakes him after his third suicide attempt, Julian is saved by a vampire so notorious that his name has become legend even among humans, Vlad Tepes Dracula. Convinced that Julian is the Messiah destined to rule the Rominus Empire and unite its warring clans, Vlad risks everything to aid a vengeful Julian by helping him to finish his vampire training. But when Julian discovers Vlad's intention to make him into King of the Empire that killed his mother, he tries to run away until he realizes that his hate is not enough to push him to finish his training and stop his mother's killers, he needs a driving force more powerful to finish his journey. And he finds it in the heart of a beautiful young slave girl named Imani. The bitter youth who had for so long sought to end his suffering and life, finally finds a reason to live, a reason to fight. Love. With the help of Vlad, Imani and another historical despot turned reluctant guardian, Erzsebeth Bathory, Julian embarks on an impossible journey into lands unknown in order to stop his mother's killers before they usurp the throne of Rominus and spark the annihilation of humans and vampires alike.
