Review:

“What David Tromblay has done with The Ramblings of a Revenant is combine the historical aspects of a documentary film with the passionate and heartbreaking story of a possible vampire existence. This novel is read as fact, absorbed as if hypnotized, and left etched in stone in your own complicit memory. A powerful story of loss, transformation, and vengeance.”—Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The young Flavian, born a Metis, reborn a vampire during the last days of the Glided Age (a time when the city of Duluth, Minnesota was a sea of strangers and stranger accents, a mix of millionaires and migrant workers and women of ill repute). After taking ill, Flavian falls under the tutelage of a man he knows only as Ambrose, who tutors him in subjects relating to the classical studies during the dark hours of the night in the city s makeshift library. Later, while succumbing to an untreatable malady, he is educated on another means to an end of his inescapable expiry - one mythologized and romanticized and made an altogether laughable notion by the fictions of the day. Although, they are mere fairy tales and shadows of an even more terrifying truth - a tale of alienation, transformation, and eternal survival. Seller Inventory # APC9781514184707
