9781932100297: In the Face of Death: An Historical Horror Novel (Count Saint-Germain series)

Madeline de Montalia, the perpetually youthful and beautiful vampire, once beloved of the Count Saint-Germain, comes to America in the 1840's to live with and study the native tribes of America, desiring to document their culture and knowledge before these are changed forever and unalterably by contact with the White Man. She had not expected she would fall in love with San Francisco Banker and US Army officer William Tecumseh Sherman in the 1850's. Now, living among the Choctaw in Georgia in the 1860's, she knows that Sherman's armies are marching through; and what will she say when they meet again after these many years? And how will she survive through some of the most horrifying events of the Civil War?

About the Author:

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro is the author of the Count Saint-Germain series and has published many titles in a wide variety of genres including horror, science fiction, fantasy, mystery, young adult, and western. She lives in San Francisco, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

Aficionados of Yarbro's long-running Saint-Germain series (Blood Roses, etc.) will find this related novel to their liking, though its female point of view lends a different emphasis and emotional texture. French vampire Madelaine de Montalia, younger by many centuries than Saint-Germain, is not as immured to the pain of loving and losing mortals as her vampiric friend, lover and mentor. In 1845, Madelaine sets out to live with and study American Indian tribes in an effort to document their culture and knowledge before they're lost forever. (Admirably accurate research makes one wish these anthropological journals truly existed.) Arriving in 1855 San Francisco, the beautiful, charismatic Madelaine-who appears to be no more than 20 years oldâ€"and her banker, the unhappily married William Tecumseh Sherman, fall passionately in love. Madelaine eventually finds herself trapped in 1860 Alabama facing the vicissitudes of civil war. Sherman, who was actually a partner in a San Francisco bank before the Civil War, necessarily receives short shrift as a supporting character, but his role does allow Madelaine to make her points about the true meaning of undying love. Romance and history predominate in a story whose horrors, as in the Saint-Germain novels, are all of human origin.
