Demon’s Blood is a vampire novel. It focuses on an origin of vampires and also the human side of the supernatural beings, and how they deal with the darker sides of their immortal lives.
“Demon’s Blood has an interesting combination of different characters and conflicts that these characters face,” says Shari Sakurai. “There are characters who embrace their eternal lives and have no qualms about drinking blood to survive. Yet they are not without their demons. You also have characters for which it is a real struggle and are constantly battling with their instincts and their more human natures.”
Demon’s Blood is set in the fictional city of Norfield in southern England. Japanese vampire Kokawa Taku and his English lover, Thane Bremen, were forced to flee their home in Tokyo after being discovered by vampire hunters. When the novel begins they are already settled in Norfield, however, both are battling their inner demons. Thane is haunted by the events in Tokyo and suffers from reoccurring nightmares. Yet unknown to Thane there is more to those events than he is aware of. As a consequence Taku is struggling against something much darker, something that could ultimately destroy him.
Demon’s Blood is available now in ebook format from most major ebook retailers.
