In 1314, King Philip of France desperately needs the Templar treasure to save his country from financial ruin. Jacques de Molay accepts the secret mission to find and deliver his country’s salvation. But his most trusted friend’s betrayal soon leads to the king sentencing Jacques to be burned to death. With a bitter heart and nothing to lose, Jacques offers his soul to Mithras, the vampire god, and devotes the rest of his existence to converting legions of mortals to his following.

Fate, however, has a different plan for Jacques. The beautiful gypsy Violca plants the spark of human emotion inside him, and she tells him it may be possible for him to become mortal once again. But to do so, he must resist the urge to consume human blood—until he finds his true love, and she allows him to drink freely of hers.

This first Epic of a trilogy chronicles Jacques quest across five centuries, through the world’s darkest places and fiercest battles, to find true love. When all seems hopeless, will his human emotions overpower his immortality and force him to give up? Or will he overcome impossible odds to regain his humanity in this sinister game of life and death, plagued with dark forces, fierce battles, and a dangerous romance between divergent worlds. Take heed, a violent storm is rising in the universe. The Vampire horde, destroyer of civilizations and worlds has awakened./p>

About the Author:

Though he doesn’t have any Sioux or Assiniboine blood running through his veins Charlie 2-Shirt grew up on the Sioux, Assiniboine Indian Reservation in Montana. While fishing one summer day, a Native American friend declared he was sick and tired of the two shirts, one blue and one pink that Charlie kept wearing to school, and if he kept wearing those shirts, his new name was going to be “Charlie 2-Shirt.”

So, Charlie is very proud to adopt, in homage to a great guy and friend, the pen name Charlie 2-Shirt.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Debut author 2-shirt begins a sprawling, epic trilogy of classically styled vampire novels, spanning centuries and exploring the extremes of good and evil. This story begins rooted in truth: Jacques de Molay, the final Grand Master of the Knights Templar, was a genuine historical figure, sentenced to death in 1314 after he recanted his confession—offered under torture—to acts of depravity and sacrilege. In both the novel and in real life, the Templars’ treasure and King Phillip IV’s debts played a significant role in de Molay’s trial, but the similarities stop there. Rather than ending Jacques’ story with a burning at the stake, the book lends credence to the accusations of his demonic proclivities. Its version of Jacques submits his soul to Mithras, a dark god of great power. Jacques’ immortality takes him across Europe, taking vengeance against the royals and struggling against other mighty supernatural creatures, including his own vampire kin. Weeks and months quickly blur into centuries as Jacques has many other strange, frightening encounters, sometimes with famous figures of the medieval and Renaissance periods. But ultimately, his greatest challenges come from within, as he must weigh his dark gifts and Templar morality against a chance to recover his soul and fight for a real future. The weight of all these ideas and the time span of the story would drag many books down, but this novel is a delightful exception. The prose here is solid and confident, moving smoothly and easily between scenes of blood and violence and startling insights into characters, the complexities of vampire lore, and legends such as that of the Ark of the Covenant. Vampire fans are sure to delight in these rich details, but lovers of historical fiction will also be captivated by the depictions of everything from the French aristocracy to the wilds of Russia’s Ural Mountains to Leonardo Da Vinci’s workshop. The struggle over Jacques’ soul may feel overly familiar to some readers, but the novel’s tight pacing and breadth of focus more than make up for it. A dynamic, entertaining journey that takes vampire fiction back to its roots.
